This chapter offers an account of Dina Wahba’s personal experience as someone who participated actively in the 25th January Egyptian revolution and its subsequent events in Tahrir Square. She was inspired by the idea that the “personal is political” to insert a personal story in the heart of the heated political debates. Her account stems from the realization that it is imperative to populate the debates with local voices and to personalize the struggles.

Keywords:   Dina Wahba, Egyptian revolution, “personal is political”, Tahrir Square
