UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS at Urbana-Champaign Fulbright students Abel Vera Iglesias and Amira Elsherbiny present this Monday January 28, 11 am– 1:15 pm, “This is Egypt: where it all begins.”
The event will take place at Franklin Middle School, located at 817 N. Harris Ave, Champaign, Illinois 61820.
After traveling through Asia (Indonesia) and South America (Brazil and Peru,) Vera Iglesias and Elsherbiny take their outreach activities to the African country of Egypt.
Through a partnership with Franklin STEAM Academy Middle School in Champaign, students will witness the formation and development of the Egyptian culture from 3400 B.C. to nowadays. This presentation will showcase interesting aspects of the Egyptian heritage, its cuisine, religion and traditions that make Egypt one of the most interesting countries and tourism magnets in the entire world.
Our Egyptian Fulbrighters and international friends will be leading this presentation aimed to enrich the international cultural perspective of all participants, among them the students at Franklin Middle School.
