I love social media. (It stresses me out in equal measure) but I love social media for the connections it makes. Despite having grown up in London for the past 20 years, I’m originally from Egypt and supremely proud of that. The country / region is having its issues as of late, but patriotism runs deep and I go back to Egypt numerous times a year. I also lived in Cairo for the first five years of my life, and for a year when I was 13, so I have strong ties and connections in the region. But, back to social media, for it allowed me to meet and collaborate with Egyptian photographer Aisha Al Shabrawy and the gorgeous model, Salma Abu Deif.
