The day started off with speeches from iEARN-Egypt representatives about how iEARN can change a student or teacher's life and and inspire them to the best. Then, projects that had emerged from members were shown to the audience. Each project was presented with charismatic and endearing approaches and a crowd that was interested enough to stay on the edge of their seats. Projects such as "Green Eco" gave hope for a greener, more environmental-friendly future. There were also projects against sexual harassment and education reform. All the presentations opened minds and awareness and made people want to make a change. Overall the event was a great chance to meet new people and widen social networks.
When asked for feedback, almost everyone replied saying that the event "made them want to be a better person, have a better future, and make the best out of Egypt." One replied with "iEARN gave me hope in myself after losing hope in everything around me, it made me want to change." An adult of an older generation replied "This event resurrected the hope in me of Egypt's youth. This generation has resources much better than mine did. My support to every single project and every single person here that symbolizes Egypt's future."
With the motivation of everyone present, an endearing aura, and despite the coldness of the weather, iEARN Stands started up an inner fire of warmth inside of everyone and it truly was a day to remember.
