About Aya Telmissany

I am a 22 year old AUCian, an English and Comparative Literature major, a Creative Writing minor and a poet. I am a fiction writer here at CairoContra. I basically read and when I’m not reading I am either buying books, sniffing books, looking up some new books online, taking pictures of my books (and my dog), or writing books (at least that’s what I hope I’m doing).

About Mariem El Tagoury

I am a graduate from German University Cairo. Reading novels is my passion and writing is my release. My guilty pleasures include fashion & playing around with my make-up kit. A couple of years back when I was introduced to the online world, back in 2007; I was quite surprised that in spite of the presence of thousands of young Egyptians who follow the online sphere daily, there wasn’t one site that represented us or our lifestyle. [Later we’d come to see the rise of the political, religion, social-elite, and foodie websites, but still the voice of the average Cairene youth was missing.] I was glad to find out that I wasn’t the only one who had the feeling of the outsider on the internet, that’s why I decided to gather a team to fill a gap & finally find our place online and give Cairo’s youth a real voice that reflects its true culture. I hope you find our site interesting with a new view of life. Besides running the magazine & editing, I write the “Sans Sugarcoating” column, pardon my french, and a couple of other stuff around here!

About Sondos Abdallah

I’m a 19 year old majoring in Art and Design; I have been in a war with food ever since I found out how delicious it is, it’s just too good to stop eating. I’m proactive when I’m not procrastinating and I’m very good (not really) at photographing anything with a good view. I love DIY stuff and I’m in love with music, any kind, any genre. I love looking at clothes I could never pull off (I blame my genes). I spend most of my time editing, drawing or just plain sleeping, which I do ALOT.
