Aad. Rammy Mohammed
First and foremost, the Editorial Board of OromoTV.com would like to extend a warm and gracious thank you to all of our beloved visitors and others, who have read and shared our first article highlighting the achievements of our sister Mergitu Argo. Thanks in part to recommendations from our visitors and others, we have chosen our second sister to feature. Although the choice was not easy, thanks to the overwhelming number of recommendations from our site’s visitors and others, we believe this individual is not only deserving of our praise, but she deserves recognition for all she has done to help her Oromo community in Minneapolis-Saint Paul, MN.
Without further delay, we would like to extend our appreciation to the one and only Rammy Mohammed. Many outside the Minnesota community will wonder about who she is? But, Minnesotans, the Oromo residents of that State – who have come to define the area as “Little Oromia,” will undoubtedly have met Ms. Rammy Mohammed or have participated in one of many activities she has played significant role in putting together for the community. Ms. Mohammed has been an active member of the community for the past decade. Some may not realize the depth of her involvement in the community because she is often one of the few individuals who are seldom in the spotlight. Her shy nature may come as a surprise to those who may not know her well because after all, how can someone actively be involved in community events and be shy? Well, for those who know her best, it is no surprise. Ms. Mohammed may be shy in large gatherings, and therefore, she chooses to be an active participant behind the scenes, but one thing she is definitely not shy about is her pride in being Oromo. When she speaks about Oromo cause, her bright and contagious smile – coupled with her audacious character – brings out the best in all of us.
