Leah Avuno, who was born in Ethiopia, delivered a message about the importance of self-acceptance and the diversity that exists in Israel, where she now lives, in an address hosted Jan. 25 at the Hillel Jewish Student Center on Arizona State University’s Tempe campus.

Avuno’s address came after a screening of “Mekonen: The Journey of an African Jew,” a documentary that chronicles a young soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces as he visits his home country of Ethiopia. The event was co-hosted by several different Jewish groups on campus, including Chabad at ASU, Jewish Arizonans on Campus (JAC), ASU Mishelanu and the AEPi fraternity.
