What makes this today’s youth unique is our courageous striving to break barriers, adapt to societal change and choose our own life path. But we often fall into a small social bubble where we seek reassurance and search for love and self-acceptance.
To help showcase the bravery and heroism of youth, writer Walaa Kamal, shares his own journey and adventures of the heroes of his books, from My Days with Cairokee and The Final Mass.
Walaa Kamal is a British-born Egyptian writer and translator. He studied translation, media, and film directing. His written works include: 730 Days with Cairokee and Final Mass.
