Please share what experience you have with Arabic language and/or culture.

I am involved on a volunteer basis with the Arab Cultural Center. I speak arabic but not well. I understand Egyptian arabic. I love arabic movies, music (especially Om Kalsoum) and I enjoy eating Egyptian Food. I watch arabic TV and enjoy watching old arabic movies on ART Dish.

What would you like to gain from coming to "Yalla Arabi!" meetups?

I would like to socialize, meet fellow arabs, laugh, have fun but also have serious discussions about what is happening in the Middle East. I am a strong supporter of the Palestinians. I am a Human Rights activist.

How did you find out about Yalla Arabi?
