My name is Bassem Girgis, I came from a country with a huge history. A country that was the most powerful of its time. Egypt has one of the longest histories of any modern state. However, I experienced it in a slightly different time. I was born and raised in a country that was moving backwards. Our schools taught us to support the system, our parents warned us from speaking out in public, and our media told us what the ones in charge wanted them to tell. I moved to the United States and faced an opposite lifestyle. The people got upset when they didn’t get what they were promised, the media talked against the system to make more money, and freedom was granted for almost everybody. I pride myself in having experienced living in two completely different if not opposite cultures. This experience opened my mind to things I never thought I can think of. I believe I have gathered a very good perspective on life, what’s important in it, and what to do to go through it happily. I left my world, my life, my friends, and my family when I moved here. I went through bad times, and I went through lonely times, but what always kept me alive were sentences that I read here and there. I believe that a well written sentence could change lives. So, I will continue to write hoping to change people’s lives just like they have changed mine. I picked up writing here in the US, and it grew from being a tool to go through school, to becoming my biggest passion in life. If you ask me what I would want to be if I can’t write, my second choice would be a super hero.
You can accomplish anything and everything in life with enough planning and a lot of hard work. When you put the plan with the work, failure will no longer be an option.
