I met Dr. Sachs in 2015, after I was selected for the prestigious Mandela Washington Fellowship. He was my mentor. I had the wonderful opportunity of shadowing him as an intern and learn about behavioral health programs in the U.S. After the completion of the program, we maintained a strong collaboration. In 2016, Dr. Sachs and I provided a successful training on trauma-informed care for mental health professionals in my native Ethiopia. Over the years, we also enjoyed a great friendship. He is that mentor who checks up on his mentees and assists them in all important career and personal life milestones.
