Jesse Sharratt is a native of Prince Edward Island, Canada. He has travelled extensively around the world. Following his graduation from Dalhousie University, where he studied Political Science and Philosophy, he lived and travelled through Australia. As the Arab Spring began to unfold, Jesse was captivated by the expression and desire for democratic reforms across the Middle East. Pursuing a job as a Social Studies teacher at an international school in Cairo allowed him to travel throughout Egypt and learn about the rich culture. Following the completion of his time in Cairo, he has moved back to Canada for the interim. This book is made in reflection on the experience of living in Egypt from January 2012-July 2013.
