The Egyptian revolution “was kind of expected and notexpected in a way,” said Joy Mihanni, an Egyptian student atSuolk. “Everyone who knew Egypt prey well [knew] therewere people who said they would never revolt against thecorruption that was happening. So a lot of people didn’t haveany faith. But [there were also] a lot of people did and said thatone day it will happen.”“I was one of those people who believed that it would.”Mihanni is a 19-year-old psychology major who experiencedthe revolution of her country here in the U.S. She was bornin America and lived here until she was in second grade,when she then moved and lived in Cairo for four and a halfyears. Her parents are originally from Egypt. The Journal gotan interview with Mihanni to get another perspective on thehistorical recent events in Egypt that displaced the PresidentHosni Mubarak aer a 30-year reign.
Journal: So how do you feel about the revolution?
Mihanni: “It was prey scary, because I have family overthere, for the rst few days that it was happening.”
Journal: Is your family safe?
Mihanni: “They’re ne. They cut o all Internet and phoneservices, so there was no way there was no way to contactthem. We were just very worried and very tense the wholetime. When we nally got what we got out of all the protestingand revolution we were all really happy and ecstatic. I know bunch of people who cried because they were so happy.”
