About the Author
Hoda Rashad has been an English Instructor and curriculum consultant for the past 12 years. Rashad is also a prior owner of NIYAA (National Institute for Youth and Adult Activities) an educational consultancy and program development provider which organized, and executed several humanitarian initiatives for the needy in Egypt including but not limited to: •Bringing water facilities to 58 homes in an impoverished, rural area (“Zawyit Sultan”) in the governorate of Al-Minya; •Building a multi-function medical facility in a village (“Nawara”) identified by USAID as the most impoverished area in the second poorest governorate (Fayoum) in Egypt; the closest medical facility was over 67 kms (42 mi) away with scant transportation; •Provided and planted 70+ trees specially chosen to absorb underground water that was eroding the foundation of a local school, in addition to raising funds necessary to sponsor a full year’s tuition for 30 local orphans. During the revolution Rashad was involved with people at the forefront of the protests. Consequently, during the days of the occupation of Tahrir (Liberation) Square, she wrote a non-political blog (under the fake name:Salma Mokadem), reporting on the dramatic events that were taking place, as they occurred: (http://www.egyptsliberationlive.blogspot.com/ -- caution: there is a disturbing image of the beaten face of one of the martyrs, juxtaposed with a picture of him happy and living). She began work on the book shortly after President Hosny Mubarak abdicated his presidency in February of 2011. Rashad is a dual national, American/Egyptian and resides partially in both countries due to her husband's work. She is also the mother of two children.
