“Diversity is a challenge? No, diversity is an added value. This is what I believe after spending four weeks among other youth with different cultures, professions, and attitudes. Being part of East-West: The Art of Dialogue was a turning point that let me start thinking about many things that happen around us from a different perspective and a broader picture. The four weeks wasn't just a cultural exchange program that shows the Fellows the other side of the world that we call the West, it was an opportunity beyond my expectations especially meeting with the policymakers, public figures, academics, artists, entrepreneurs, and a pool of international organizations and different media representatives. The Shafik Gabr Fellowship is a unique experience fostering dialogue between the East and West. ”
