A MiddKid’s Egypt Story: Tik Root ’12

Protests in Cairo on Thursday via NYTimes

The Burlington Free press published an article yesterday featuring Tik Root ’12. Root recounts the days leading up to his evacuation, including attempts to secure his neighborhood from looters. While he acknowledged the chaos of the situation, Root also made it clear that his Egypt experience has not changed his mind about traveling abroad:

“Once he’s back in Middlebury, Root said, he’ll resume his classes there — unless, or until, he can find another program in the Middle East. He wants to go back.”

EDIT 1/3 10pm ET by Ryan K.: Root is also adding his own media to the interwebs
