Hello There, 

I am Dr. Tinsae, a 24-year-old blogger from Ethiopia

I was born and raised in Nazareth, Ethiopia. As of 1st born, I had the responsibility of being a role model for my younger siblings. So I was too focused on learning and managed to join Black lion medical school, which is one of the most known tertiary hospitals in my country Ethiopia. And currently, I am last year medical student. In the future, I plan to be a good psychiatrist.

Why I Start Blogging

I was into writing since I was a child. I wrote poems, fiction, and a diary. And I think that is one of my reasons to start writing a blog.

My first self-hosted blog is called earn-smarter.com. It contains valuable content so if you are interested in blogging and freelancing, feel free to surf.

After blogging for years on other blogs (both free and self-hosted), I believe I should start a blog that is about my profession and which will help many people around the globe.

So I started Life as MD.
