Sarah Carr

The mother of four cats, Sarah came to Egypt ten years ago to explore a half of her personality the she hadn’t figured out before. The daughter of a British father and an Egyptian mother, she studied Arabic and Law at the School of Oriental and African Studies.

After spending almost two years translating and downloading songs illegally from Arabic music sites she spent a year at Essex University where she obtained a Masters in international Human Rights Law that she has never used in any way.

She fell into journalism in 2007 and worked at Daily News Egypt, leaving shortly before almost its entire staff was fired. She then worked at Egypt Independent until its entire staff was fired.
