Dedicated to my Egyptian brothers and sisters

Saturday, April 16, 2011

When I first heard this song a number of years ago I instantly fell in love with it. I had no idea what Nancy Ajram was singing but it was definitely love at first hearing. It's amazing how this song has so much relevance today and as most of you know Nancy's not even Egyptian.




In reflection of my love and support for anyone and everyone struggling for their right to faith, freedom and fulfillment I have decided that my post-grad dissertation will be on the groundbreaking Egyptian revolution earlier this year. I'm not too sure why but this topic feels very close to my heart. I will gradually fill you in on my progress as it's a research project that will go on for the next 6 months or so. Wish me luck and please make du'a for this to go well for me.

p.s. To all my Egyptian blog friends, you will be in my thoughts as I do this!

That is a BRILLIANT idea for a dissertation.
In my past two major research papers, I've incorporated the revolutions in as much as I can!
