Brian shared his story at the 2013 Global Youth Forum.

Age: 16

Hometown: Cairo, Egypt

My favorite hobbies are: photography and programming.

In 10 years, I hope to be: a computer or biotech engineer.

If I were an animal, I would be: an elephant – not just because of its size, but also because an elephant is capable of unbelievable tenderness and emotion – especially when it comes to family.


I think PTPI is important because: a peaceful place can only be made possible through cultural exchange and strengthening the relations between countries; peace education cannot be the work of one country alone.

The best moment at the 2013 Global Youth Forum was: presenting in front of all the GYF delegates about Egyptian culture.


We have thousands of members around the world, and each has a story to tell. From the youngest to oldest members and from the most poverty stricken corners of the world to our own backyards, we strive daily to change lives and break down barriers to peace and understanding.
