Summary
Article summary: 

Mother Theoliptie is a Chinese-Canadian Coptic Orthodox nun who has resided  at St. Demiana’s Monastery for about 16 years.  Her story is one of remarkable change from Buddhism to Coptic Orthodoxy. She quit her job as a pharmacist in Toronto and entered the monastery at age 27. I have met with Mother Theoliptie on several occasions and she is certainly a woman with a deep faith. Interestingly enough she stated about the political earthquake Egypt has experienced in the past years:  ”Nuns do not follow the news. We do not have newspapers, no TV or radio and do not look for news on the internet, but we hear of things when people ask us to pray. We heard of the January 25 revolution when our late Pope Shenouda III asked all Copts internationally to fast and pray for three days for the peace and well-being of Egypt, and others asking for our prayers, thus we realized something was happening. I am sure Egypt will be blessed because these are God’s promises.” Continue to read here

Summary
Article summary: 

During our first trip to the Fayoum Oasis, other interns and I had the chance to visit the “Beautiful Oasis”, a school for children with special needs. When we left the car after our nearly two hour trip out of Cairo, the first thing we recognized was the peacefulness of the whole area. Fresh air, laughing children, chatting women; it was a very nice contrast to noisy, chaotic Cairo.

Summary
Article summary: 

Are you crazy? For sure? Why Cairo? These were some of the questions my family and friends (especially family) asked me when I first told them about my internship at the Center for Arab-West Understanding (CAWU), a center for intercultural dialogue, here in Maadi, Cairo.
Of course, prior to traveling to Egypt, I was not always 100% sure about it... the news wasn't helpful most of the time but since I arrived here I haven’t regretted the decision to come.

Summary
Article summary: 

I arrived in Cairo in the first week of February, shortly after I had finished with my undergraduate school in Vienna, Austria. I was looking for a working experience that was relevant to my studies, and, luckily, found a research internship at an NGO, Center for Arab West Understanding. I was, of course, well aware of the recent happenings in Egypt and was a little apprehensive about going there at such a time, but the idea of conducting interviews with Egyptians and working on my own project in the largest metropolitan city in Middle East and Africa kept those worries away from me.
