Since I was a child, I knew that I wanted to be on stage.
I was the first Ethiopian actress here in Israel, so I wasn’t accepted to drama school because of my heavy accent.
But I worked very hard, and graduated from ‘Tel Aviv Nisan Nativ’ drama school.
I have to do it by myself if I want to understand myself and the world. My first play was about the Ethiopian journey from Ethiopia to Israel.
I remember the day I left Ethiopia after my prom, we had a party, a graduation party.
It was also a separation from our friends; they did not know we were not allowed to tell anyone.
Meskie Shibru is an Israeli Actress and vocalist. She was born in Ethiopia and immigrated to Israel at the age of 16.
And at 5 o’clock in the morning, my mother took us to the airport.
It was not easy to send two daughters to the Promised Land, without knowing if she would ever see them again.
When I came to Israel, I went to kibbutz.
I was adopted [into] a great family.
They were Holocaust survivors, had no children.
We communicated the first moment that we saw each other.
Two years later, my mother was arrested for Zionist activities in the Jewish community.
After two years in the jail, she was released and we were reunited as a family in Israel.
Now the whole family is here in Israel.
Here in Israel, it’s a people: they came from different countries, different languages, and different foods; different colors mixed together and they create a rainbow. You can’t see it, you cannot touch it, but you can enjoy it.
