Hello everyone, I’m 17 years old. I grew up in New York but I have been living in Egypt for the past three years. My greatest happiness is reading while listening to Coldplay and spending time with my family. My greatest fear is growing up, making wrong decisions and having to choose to do something or be somebody I do not want to be. Despite this, I have a passion for writing and joining Cairo Contra is a step in facing my greatest fear. I am a writer for “It’s a Teen’s Life” column.
