Sumi Alkebsi

Today we say goodbye to the dear friend, Sumi Alkebsi

The world will long remember their coworker Sumi as a champion for those who had none; the soul of QFI; and the lion of the 1225 New York Ave Suite 500 office—a woman who graces nearly 10,00 students,  and who met more than 300 teachers herself.

But those of us who loved her,  and ache with her passing, know Sumi by the other titles she held: Senior Communication Officer. Co-worker. Friend. Yemeni Royalty (kinda).
