“You can’t travel by yourself, you’re a girl!”
Unfortunately, this is a common phrase that many Egyptian girls hear still to this day in our society. But we wanted to challenge that, and prove that yes we can, and yes we will.
Breaking the norm of our society, these powerful girls proved to everyone, that you can achieve everything in life with determination and passion.
But before we start the list of our brave females circling the globe, we wanted to congratulate one of our talented youth on social media today; someone who we are sure will achieve many great things in the future, Basel Ehab Helal.
Basel is a 25 years old, computer science graduate; however, his greatest pleasure in life is to travel the world and capturing using his camera everything that is uniquely beautiful in this big and complicated universe. Earlier this year, one of Basel’s latest projects “OBLIVIOUS” was chosen for the Switzerland video festival “Best Seconds – Video Competition 2018”. Way to go Basel, we wish you the best of luck, and you already made everyone proud by getting nominated. Take a look at this piece of art now.
But Basel isn’t the only blogger showing us the beauty of this world, those females are doing a great job at it!
