How I planned my trip to Egypt in 12 days!

On Saturday 5 May, I received an email from Social Media Exchange (SMeX) asking me to represent them in a workshop hosted by NaseejCYD in Egypt titled “Social Media and Alternative Learning techniques.” The workshop was on May 16 and I had only 12 days to prepare myself for the event, here’s how I organized myself!
