“The Gabr Fellowship experience has been personally, professionally, and intellectually transformative. It is clear to me that the underlying dynamics that provoke the growing Western and Arab chasm are governed by a set of politicized mechanisms that are perpetuated by fear and ignorance of ourselves and of each other. These structurally imposed misperceptions that have driven a wedge in-between our cultures must be shattered if we wish for peace and prosperity to blossom. Anything short of this is mutual destruction. My participation as a Gabr Fellow continues to demonstrate the critical roll that open dialogue and creative diplomacy must play in designing a future that my generation can be proud of. ”
