Elsabeth Dinku is a junior producer for Betengna radio diaries working on Amhara region’s Betengna radio diaries program. She has so far produced 38 episodes for two diarists. Before producing radio diary programs on her own, she used to assist Amharic and Oromiffa Betengna producers in editing, interviewing and recording caller feedbacks from three regions.
The thing she loves most about her job is that she gets to meet different people and learn from their real-life experiences.
Born in Addis Ababa, Elsa is one of nine children who used to love the outdoors and spent most of her extra time playing soccer with her friends. Now that she’s all grown up and married, Elizabeth likes it more quiet and settled.
Now, she spends some of her free time giving back to her community by volunteering in organizations that help children with HIV. She also likes to read and write children’s stories.
Elsa’s memorable interview moment was when she was doing a follow-up episode of a mother who had lost four of her children to AIDS because of lack of HIV testing and treatment. “Talking to her about her loss was the saddest and most heartbreaking experience” said Elsa.
