Kidus Legesse

Cornell University
Class of 2026

Kidus is someone who likes to ask questions. Ever since he was a young kid, “why” has been his favorite word. He believes that asking questions is the best way to understand the world and change it for the better. To be a leader you must relentlessly ask questions. Kidus wants his community to know that he is a curious person with a passion for technology and computers. This curiosity led to him teaching himself how to code. His goal is to create a story game that highlights and educates on the societal issues faced by the African American community.
