Given the current turn of events, we, the CairoContra team, send out our prayers and condolences to all of Egypt and especially to those families who lost a member or a friend. We ask you all to keep Egypt in your prayers and put aside political differences and affiliations to help the country move out from the darkness it’s engulfed in.
We also advice our fellow Egyptians to apply caution when looking up information on current events as they could be false or rumor based intelligence. Only from well-trusted sources should you actually pass on the information and this is to avoid putting more oil on the “fetna” we’re currently living.
We encourage all of you to follow safety protocols and remain in your houses until further notice. No one is to leave one’s house unless absolutely necessary. This is for everyone’s safety.
Due to the current events, the scheduled articles for the next few days have been postponed until it is deemed fit to publish them.
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!
