Meskie was born in Ethiopia. She came to Israel without her family in 1985, when she was 16 years old. Supposedly she came to study computer science, but instead, she studied acting at the Nissan Nativ School of Acting in Tel Aviv. Her family followed later. She participated in many television shows, films, and concerts. Some of these were related to her Ethiopian roots.
In 1999, she played the role of Inbal in an episode of the Israeli TV series Zinzana and herself in an episode of the children's series Parparim. She also acts and sings in the role of Queen of Sheba in Sipurim keypad Hamelekh, an Israeli production for children starring Tuvia Tzafir.
