less than 1 percent of the cur-

She added that Mubarak and
his sons had ultimate sovereignty,
but now that he is no longer in
power, women - like Kamel -
can contribute to the government.
During her presentation,
Kamel played four videos, one of
which depicted a young woman
who said the army sexually
assaulted her in prison under the
guise of a "virginity test," though

the army denied the existence of
these tests. Another video showed
a December 2011 women's protest
march against military brutality.
"Egyptian women would face
the difficulties with courage and
bravery," Kamel said.
She added that while the rise of
Islamist and conservative parties
- which have won a large share
of votes in Tunisia and Egypt - is
problematic, it did not signal the
end of the revolution.
"The revolutionaries seek only
a free Egypt," she said.
Following a standing ovation
after her speech, Kamel held a
40-minute question-and-answer
session with attendees.
Kamel said a focus of her cam-
paign is to promote the strength

of women and her political goals,
adding that a female president
will be symbolic of revolutionary
change in Egypt.
"When the revolution is victo-
rious, there will be a female presi-
dent," she said.
Kamel also said she supports
religious freedom for all people.
Kamel, who does not wear a
headscarf, said wearing a head
covering must remain one's
Ahmed Nada, a 16-year-old
Egyptian student who attends
Skyline High School inAnnArbor,
said he was in Tahrir Square dur-
ing the protests, and told Kamel
that at the time he thought the
"revolution had already died."
Kamel disagreed with the sen-
timent and in an interview with
The Michigan Daily interview fol-
lowing the speech she expressed
sadness at the aggressiveness of
Egyptian students. She said the

youth in Egypt are shaped by the
atmosphere of the revolution and
are constantly critical.
"The youth wants to break
everything," Kamel said.
However, she differentiated
between Egyptian students and
those at the University, who she
said were very courteous.
"Your students give the energy
of this city (Ann Arbor)," Kamel
Kamel stressed that the foun-
dation of the revolution stems
from the younger generation
while adults "merely support it."
"When the youth sacrifice, the
adults try to steal it," Kamel said.
Business and LSA senior
Ahmad Soliman, president of the
Egyptian Student Association,
said he thought coming to see
Kamel's speech was worthwhile.
"Talks like this give us a chance
to understand some of the nuance
of what is going on," Soliman said.

outside the ballroom so students
could sign up to volunteers for
the campaign.
The forum also included
two University students - LSA
freshman Pavitra Abraham, a
campus organizer for the Obama
campaign in Ann Arbor, and
Business junior Taqee Vernon,
the spokesman for the Black
Student Union - Matt Kerry, a
student at the University's Dear-
born campus, also participated.
The three students shared per-
sonal stories about why they
decided to support Obama.
Penn said he decided to join
the Obama campaign primar-
ily because he was bothered
the handling of national affairs
by former President George W.
Bush, noting examples of how
faulty policy negatively impact-
ed his friends.
Specifically, Penn said Bush's
lack of priorities were exempli-
fied by one friend of his who
couldn't afford eyeglasses due
to financial strife, while anoth-
er friend of his was offered a
$90,000 contract to work for the
organization formerly known as
Halliburton, a defense contrac-
tor, in Iraq.
"I thought it was absolutely
crazy that my friends had to
make a decision in the world's
richest, most powerful coun-
try, to make a decision between
a minimum wage job and
90-grand for driving a truck
through a warzone for a private
company, or eyeglasses or text-
books," Penn said. "To me, that
seemed nuts."
Penn said he learned about
what youth voters cared about
by working as Obama's youth
"I realized that most young
people, regardless of their politi-
cal affiliations, agreed on quite a
lot," Penn said.
He added that it is impor-
tant Obama is re-elected so that
he can continue to strengthen
achievements made during his
first term.

"It was a distinct honor to
serve the president as he dou-
bled the Pell Grant, created the
American Opportunity Tax
Credit, repealing 'don't ask,
don't tell,' ending the war in
Iraq - taking care of bin Laden
wasn't so bad - and making sure
that 2.5 million young Ameri-
cans could stay on their parent's
health-insurance plan," Penn
In an interview with the Daily
after the event, Penn said though
he understands that though citi-
zens may be cynical about the
political climate in America,
Obama is a better choice com-
pared to the current field of
Republican challengers,
During the panel, Dingell
lauded the importance of col-
lege students in comprising
the American workforce of the
"You're only 25 percent of the
population, but you're 100 per-
cent of our future," Dingell said.
Dingell criticized Republi-
can presidential candidate Rick
Santorum for recent comments
in opposition to Obama's prior-
ity on increasing college afford-
"(Santorum) said President
Obama was a snob for wanting
everyone to go to college," Ding-
ell said. "Well I was of that gen-
eration that fought in World War
II, and we came back and they
gave us an education to thank
us for what we did for our coun-
try. It was great for us, but it was
even better for the country."
Kerry, who accepted a job as
a field manager for the Obama
campaign, became paralyzed
from a dive into shallow water
several years ago. Kerry spoke
about how his family ran into
financial issues following his
accident, noting that he is grate-
ful for Obama's work toward
passing the Affordable Care Act.
"I no longer have to worry
about my pre-existing condition
in the future. I can't be dropped
from plan for my condition,"
Kerry said. "Even more than
that, tens of millions of young
Americans will have insurance
