  • This is just one of these ads that make you want to fall at your mother’s feet and tell her that you get it!
  • This is in Arabic but I had to include this beautifully written article that sheds a lot of thoughtful light from the young talented Ramy Galal Amer (looks like it runs in the family) on young people’s angry responses to their parents’ generation’s political differences.
  • A sad follow up on the ruins of the Islamic museum after last week’s bombing.
  • Let’s change the course of things and blow your mind instead with this!

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! If you want to contact me, my email is mariem.eltagoury@cairocontra.com; you can also use our contact form or email directly to admin@cairocontra.com
