Mina Attia ’11, psychology, an Egyptian native, has been struggling to get in touch with his grandparents and cousins since the protests in Egypt began. He has only talked to his grandparents once, and can’t reach his cousins because Egyptian authorities have reportedly cut off Internet and cellular phone access
Despite the unrest, Attia said the uprising may be good for Americans to realize what they have, and it might be good for Egyptians, who yearn for change.
“This is the first time that people have spoken up in many years, after having a government that some say is corrupt. This is something good. Hopefully, it will turn out for the best,” he said.
Attia told his story to WBAL on January 31. You can read the story and watch the segment here.
