On the Media in Cairo (Stephen Nessen)

Brooke's Doppelganger

Wednesday, April 06, 2011 - 09:32 AM

Last night we finally got to meet Mona Seif, a 25-year-old Egyptian activist, blogger and tweep who spoke to OTM from Tahrir Square at the height of the revolution.  And as if her digital activism wasn't enough, she also does a bit of breast cancer research on the side.

Brooke and I were thoroughly impressed by this amazing young woman, and you will definitely see why when you hear her interview.  But the other interesting thing--she bears a striking resemblance to one of OTM's hosts.

The resemblance between Brooke and this Ms. Seif is remarkable in the picture. What did Brooke think about this?
