About Roddy

As an Egyptian-American, the latter part of my childhood was spent in Cairo, Egypt. During that time I became fluent in Arabic and learned the culture and values of the Egyptian people. It has been this integral experience in my life that continues to motivate my efforts to give the Arab world a voice and essentially was what encouraged me to put my college education on-hold in the U.S. and return to Egypt during the Arab Spring. I have always felt a deep connection to the Egyptian people, culture, and language. When I visited Egypt three years ago for a brief stay after a prolonged absence, I was distraught by the deteriorating standard of life an overwhelming majority of Egyptians, including much of my extended family. I was disgusted at the police state under which my friends and family lived in constant fear of thugs and secret police. My Egyptian family members had fewer rights in their own country then a foreigner. The government had purposely driven people into poverty and hopelessness. I came back to Egypt after the revolution because I felt compelled to be here, to witness what was happening, and to help in any way possible.

California is facing some of the worst of it – there are only 22 affordable rental homes available per 100 extremely low-income households. Some southern California workers have a creative solution to the financial squeeze.
