Israel Dejene, founder of Megabiskate, narrates this film by Aaron Hutchinson and Across the Pond. Dejene describes his passion for skateboarding and how he is using the sport to engage, inspire, and empower kids — boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 19 — in his neighborhood of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. As a part of the project, he built the first-ever skate ramp in Ethiopia, and hopes to build skate parks across the country.
