He pivoted away from politics and decided to stand for collective justice after experiencing the reality of the forgotten masses. His writing defies conventional wisdom and challenges readers to look outside the constraints of labels and ideologies that serve to splinter the people. Teodrose uses his pen to give a voice to the voiceless and to speak truth to power.

Today marks another milestone in the continued evolution of the Ghion Journal. A venture that was non-existent on December 26th, 2016 has morphed from a dream into a viable news source.
