Vote For Sally Bishai

October 4, 2006

There is a magazine who had contacted a friend of mine last month, searching for accomplished people to interview. After reading their past interviews, and discussing it with my friend, I have decided that the best person to represent the Young Coptic Movement will be Dr. Sally Bishai. This has nothing to do with the fact that she accepted an article of mine to appear in her magazine (I will put a separate listing for this momentarily), and everything to do with the fact that she is everything they are looking for–young, accomplished, ambitious, relatively high profile, and Middle-Eastern. This is what their site is: The Cultural Connect and you must choose “Mid-East Connect” from the menu. Then email them suggesting her.

Here is a brief bio to help you out (this is what I sent to them):

“Dr. Sally Bishai is amazingly accomplished for a 28 year old. She is the author
of several books, 2 of which are about Middle Eastern Culture (they were
featured, I believe, in Forbes Book Club Online), she has made several
documentaries about her homeland of Egypt and also human rights, she is the
hostess of her own web/TV program (who has featured such guests as director
Keith Beauchamp, Activist Dr. Saad El Din Ibrahim, Writer Mona Eltahawy, among
others), she edits two popular “underground” magazines (X-Culture Magazine, and
Photo X Quarterly), and she even finds time to be a weekly columnist for several
newspapers. She teaches at a prominent Florida University. I do not have her
phone number, but I believe you could do alot worse than this young lady!”

Sally’s website is sallybishai.com.
