Edom was born and raised in Boston and attended the Weston Public School system through METCO, a voluntary program with a two-fold mission of expanding educational opportunities and fostering diversity throughout Massachusetts schools. As the daughter of Ethiopian immigrants, Edom was constantly reminded of her educational and extracurricular privileges and was motivated to be an active student.
Edom graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Anthropology modified with geography and also studied pre-medicine. To combine her interests in anthropology and medicine, Edom moved to London and is currently pursuing an MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
At Dartmouth, Edom experienced the power of mentorship firsthand through her acappella and sorority communities. As musical director and philanthropy chair, Edom used the lessons learned from several upperclassmen mentors to build relationships and learn from diverse perspectives while on the job. Academically, her experiences as both mentor and mentee during countless biology, chemistry, and geography courses have crafted her unique approaches to learning. Edom is excited to transfer these skills to a one-on-one setting and create a comfortable, dynamic, and personalized learning environment for each student.
Edom has worked in global health in several countries including India, Ethiopia, and Zimbabwe. In her free time, Edom enjoys eating ice cream (JP Licks superfan!), hiking, live music, trail running, and exploring the hundreds of food and vintage markets London has to offer.
