We will not let Sisi take power-an Egyptian youth


Mariam Abuhaideri speaks to a group of fresh graduates at a local cafe in Downtown Cairo about the challenges ahead. Some of their strongest ideas were “Islam with Democracy”; “neither Sisi nor the Ikhwan”; “any president who comes will not care for Egypt”; “There are no jobs”; “we want to do something for our country”. Following the conversation, they listened attentively to my ideas on youth empowerment and youth-led development in Egypt. There biggest challenge now, is to fight unemployment and a mentality that status quo is fine when it is anything but that! Sexual Harassment, poor personal hygiene, an educational system that need immediate revamping, and anger management are some of the most pressing issues!
