Can anyone help me get in contact with Shimaa Helmy? Or know if she's still in the bay area? Or perhaps know of other Egyptian activists/journalists in the bay? Preferably women? I'm looking for someone willing to offer their voice/perspective for a show I'm working on with Making Contact.

Thanks!
