Monica Demese

Area Director

Young Life is huge in Ethiopia – second only to the United States in number of kids reached. In order to continue growing, Young Life relies on faithful servants to join staff and continue leading kids to Jesus. Monika Demise is new to Young Life staff and is one of those faithful. While she is quiet upon initial meeting, her bubbly laugh and joyful personality instantly win everyone over. Monika grew up in a Christian home and met the Lord through the love and faithfulness of her family members. She worked as a volunteer leader for many years after Area Director Alemtsehay encouraged her to join Young Life, and is now Field Staff running club in Ambo town in central Ethiopia. Monika has a true servant’s heart and is already thriving on staff.
