“This fellowship program has been an engaging, eye-opening learning experience of important issues effecting Egypt, which has enabled me to think deeply and cultivate a desire to work with other Americans and Egyptian counterparts on how to address and find sustainable solutions to address these problems. With the excellent speakers who have spoken on a vast range of subjects, I feel I have gained a better understanding of the daily political struggles that Egyptians are experiencing as well as some of the many cultural and artistic gifts that Egypt continues to offer to the world. As my time in Egypt continues, I look forward to using this knowledge to craft an effective, sustainable action project in collaboration with American and Egyptian fellows alike.”
