I immersed myself, absorbing Arabic and the Egyptian culture. Not only was I able to meet some of my best friends and become proficient in Arabic, but my own core beliefs in life's purpose dramatically transformed.

For people in the Middle East, and Egypt in particular, being friendly and polite is taken for granted. You walk down the street here and exchange more niceties in a morning than you do in a year in other places.

This exposure to Egyptian people, culture and politics made an impression on me that developed my interest in the region. I became fascinated by this part of the world and gained a lot of affection for the Middle East. Those two years [at AUC] left me with a great love for Egypt and an abiding respect for the University.
