“After an immersion into Egyptian politics and culture through speaking events in Cairo, I have enjoyed the opportunity to reflect upon the ideas and information with the other fellows in the more relaxed cities of Alexandria and Luxor. As I see more of Egypt and get to know the Egyptian fellows on a deeper level, my perception of the country has been evolving as additional brushstrokes of insight are added to a picture that was created during our sessions in Cairo. Although as an outsider, I do not expect the picture to ever be complete, I have developed a deep affection for this country and the individuals who are fighting for the values that will make Egypt and the world a better place. I am hoping that the action project will be one small way to contribute, and one step towards greater actions in the future.”
