Future City, a turning point
As a middle schooler, Amira Gabr participated in every activity she could sign up for and dreamed of becoming a doctor. But it was her experience with Future City in Egypt that introduced her to a completely different approach to learning.
The Future City engineers, mentors and volunteers helped develop Amira’s research and design skills. Working with them made her more passionate about engineering and creating new and efficient solutions for the human body’s problems. “Future City showed me how I can make new things that solve problems and help change the world."
Today, Amira studies Biotechnology at St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud Minnesota. When someone asks her what the biggest turning point in her life was, she always answers: “It’s Future City.”
