Egyptian activist Gigi Ibrahim – who was recently featured on the cover of Time magazine – will deliver a plenary address at next month's Conference on World Affairs, organizers announced Wednesday.
Ibrahim, 24, spent her childhood in Egypt, attending high school and college in Anaheim, Calif., and, in 2008, transferred back to Egypt to attend the American University in Cairo.
Her speech – “Inside the Egyptian Revolution” – will be held at 3 p.m. April 7 in Macky Auditorium.
Ibrahim received international recognition through her constant Facebook and Twitter updates from inside Tahrir Square. She was featured in Time magazine as a member of “The Generation Changing the World” and has also been featured in PBS's Frontline.
The 63rd CWA runs April 4 to 8. All sessions are free and open to the public.
