Fikru Bogalee
Rockville, MD

After working in Ethiopia as a journalist and radio host, Fikru Bogale came to the United States in search of financial freedom. He worked in the car business, driving taxis and Uber to earn extra income, but was unhappy living paycheck to paycheck. Fikru believes America is the land of opportunity, so after being introduced to Stream, he started immediately and found success.

“Stream promised and delivered,” he said.

In 2017 Fikru received the Power of Leadership Award and became a member of the 300 Club. His children Liya and Abel are the driving force behind his Why, and Fikru says every day that he sees his kids grow, his Why gets stronger.

“Every single day I am excited and focused. I believe my future is bright.”

"I would personally like to thank you for your support, friendship and hard work!  Please join me in celebrating my promotion to Executive Director with Stream."
