Ahmad El Naggar, Class of 2014

“I am not exaggerating when I say that the Gabr Fellowship is a turning point in my life. My personal perspectives towards many things have changed after visiting the US. Meeting with high officials from the most powerful and prestigious institutions in the world was a good experience though I feel they are not the people who shape our world. On the other hand, visiting museums, art centers, theatres, and creativity centers has emphasized my belief that culture is the overriding source of power in the US. I believe the people running such places are the people who shape the world.”
