No. 0949 Youth Power

I moved to Egypt after living in Europe for over half a decade. One of the most striking differences (and indeed, there were many) was in the age difference. In Egypt, I think a baby is born every 2 seconds or something incredible like this. Young people abound, energetic, hopeful, full of change, and very different from their parent's generation. That was how I felt when I first came here 10 years ago, and that feeling just grows with time. There is incredible talent and brain power in this region, let us hope the youth will have a chance to put it to good use and improve their own lives and the lives of those around them.
