Hello. We are five friends, who study together at the American university in Cairo. We all take the English course together, that is why we formed a group, where we can comment and post our opinion and comments on this blog. Let me start by introducing the group.
Randala is 18 years old. She’s originally from Syria and moved to Egypt two months ago to study in AUC.When I talk to her and ask her if Egypt is different from Syria, she always says that she doesn’t feel that she’s away from home because Egypt almost has the same traditions that Syria .
Marina just loves weekends. For her the weekend is the time to chill out and go out with friends, but unfortunately that doesn’t always happen, because of the professors think that she does not make enough effort to deliver her assignments on time. She sometimes wishes that university was like school, where she can just put on the uniform every morning and just go to school, where you can just chill with friends.
Nouran El-Berry is quiet, but really smart. This is her first semester at AUC. The reason she hates university is that her classes start at 8:30 in the morning, which means that she has to wake up at 6:00 a.m. . Her schedule is perfect for a nerd. She has running classes from 8:30 in the morning till 2 in the afternoon so never has time to meet her friends or grab something to eat between classes.
Mayada is the funniest person I have ever met and the youngest member in our group ( she’s 17 years old). When she drives into university with her car, she parks it across two spaces and walks away grinning. After she finishes her 11:30 class, her favorite part of the day begins. Assembly hour is when she meets with her friends, gossips, and eats. After assembly she goes to her favorite class, Rhet 101. She has the most fun in Rhet101 because she can freely express her opinion in class discussions.
I’m Ingy, at 20 years old I’m the oldest in the group and perhaps the oldest in the whole class. This is my second semester at AUC. I intend to major in economics and minor in psychology. My day starts really early. I wake up at 6;30 in the morning, take a shower, get dresses, put my things into my bag and I drive to the meeting point of the busses to go to university. In the bus, I sit next to this really cute boy, I was about to hit four times with my car. Because of this incident, we became friends. That is why the bus ride never gets boring
So this is our group. As you can see we have different personalities and our lives are also different. We promise we’re going to post our comments and analysis on interesting things soon. J
