Google Student Ambassador Program selected Abel Asrat, a student at Mekelle University’s Mechanical Engineering, year 4 to serve as a Google Student Ambassador in Mekelle University for a period of one year (2012-2013).

As a Google Student Ambassador, Abel is invited, along with selected Ambassadors from over 100 African Universities, to attend a 3-day Google Ambassador Orientation Summit in Nairobi, Kenya between 11th and 13th June 2012, and all costs associated with the student participating in the event will be covered by the program.

“The Ambassador program is part of our ongoing commitment to supporting education in Africa” a letter sent to the EiT-M reads.

Ambassadors serve as Google’s representatives on campus - they plan and host a few events during the school year, introduce students to new Google products and features, create awareness about Google opportunities, and act as a campus contact for Google teams.
