Creating “Eman” and “Helping Her, Helping the Community”
My goal for the Crop Gap project was to help people outside the agricultural community connect with the women’s stories. I filmed them with their families in intimate, everyday moments. I spoke to them about their daily tasks and the satisfaction they find in their work. I tried to shine a light on their passion for farming. These women were incredible, and I connected with them instantly. They believe in themselves, and they are committed to doing their best for their families.
Equality for All
I’m grateful to PepsiCo and CARE for helping to share these women’s stories with the world. I believe that men and women should have equal opportunities. Women can work just as well as men, even in the agricultural industry. I want people to value agriculture and to give more opportunities to women working in the field, and my hope is that will start with Egypt. My hope is that one day Egypt will be a beacon for the world—somewhere everyone dreams to live.
