About Me

Hello!

Whether you found this blog randomly or you know me in person, let me introduce myself as the author of this blog and the founder/project manager of Laptops for Egypt.

My name is Sarah Naguib. I’m eighteen years old and a recent graduate of Columbus School for Girls. I will be attending Kenyon College in the fall of 2013. I am a first-generation Egyptian-American and also a Coptic Orthodox Christian. Being raised in an Egyptian-American environment has made me who I am today, and I don’t know where I would be without my parents who have helped me every step of the way to embrace my upbringing as a mixture of two incredibly different and fascinating cultures. I also have a younger sister who is 16 years old and a younger brother who is 11 years old and I could not imagine what my life would be like without the two of them. They are my best friends and I love them so much!

I also don’t know where I would be today had it not been for my technology teacher who has been with me from the moment I dreamed this dream back in December of 2011. Right from the beginning of my involvement with One Laptop Per Child in September of 2010, she provided me with an outlet to share my growing love and passion for technology and education. Check out her blog at http://csgolpc2012.weebly.com/.

Other than the fact that I raised $32,000 in 6 months with Hands Along the Nile, I am a pretty normal teenage girl. I have a black belt in tae kwon do and in my free time, I love to read, hang out with my friends and my family, and bake delicious gluten-free food. However, I happen to thoroughly enjoy my busyness from school and I am ever-so-grateful to my parents for giving me my education and instilling in me a yearn to learn from a very young age.

    You are awesome, Sarah! I especially like your happy camels! Keep up the great work on behalf of so many Egyptian students who will benefit from your promotion of technology.

    Dear Sarah,
    I have known you since before you were born! Your parents and grandparents are dear friends of ours. In fact, it was our priviledge, and dream come true, to travel to Egypt with your grandparents in the spring of 2006. What a wonderful trip that was. We are proud to know that you want to help those students in Egypt who are less fortunate. We will be sending some funds for this great project, and will be praying that your dream comes true!
    Love and blessings to you and your family,
    Jerry and Joyce Felzien

    You have inspired me!

  7. I am sorry that I posted the poem I wrote about Mother Teresa without reading the details about you first. Imagine the number of months that went by before realizing I am very lucky to have opened the site of a very brave lady like you. I have personally met Mother Teresa here in Manila 4 years before her death. I had goose pimples all over me while talking to her. I was not aware that I was teary eyed when we parted ways – she and another nun to their convent and I, back to downtown Manila. I pray for your success! You may want to know more about me by google searching using my full name Apolinario B Villalobos. Also, I have another blogsite: penpowersong@wordpress.com. God bless

    • That’s amazing that you were able to meet Mother Teresa! She is certainly a woman to look up to. Thank you so much for your support and I appreciate your comments on my blog. I’ll have to check you out sometime, too!

  8. In Manila, their “house” is located at the crossroads of pier, Divisoria and Tondo where needy families live. As if her diminutive size is not enough, her stoop figure practically cannot be perceived when she is in a crowd. There is something in her gaze that hypnotizes you. Thanks for your comment to my reply.
