As the world watched the events of the Egyptian Uprising unfold on their TV screens, Dawn and her family lived through it. This is her account of what it was like living and working in Egypt during this incredible historic moment. An honest and frank account about the hardships, the fear and the joys of living in Egypt during this turbulent time. Dawn talks with a refreshing and engaging voice as she describes the Egypt she’s loved for 20 years and the pain of seeing Egypt and the people of Egypt destroyed before her very eyes.
For the first time in history the Egyptians rose up together to overthrow their President, Hosni Mubarak. The world watched as those living in Egypt experienced a complete communications black out, violent and bloody protests, police and army brutality, 7pm curfews, and the end of Mohammed Morsi’s presidency by a blood thirsty military coup, giving way to the now President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.
