When Egyptians poured into the streets of Cairo back in 2011, Hend Nafie was excited.
"I was hoping for personal freedom," she said. "I wanted to be free. I wanted my family to accept me [as] who I am."
Nafie grew up in a conservative family in a village in the Nile Delta. She says her family was strict. Her parents didn’t want her to go to school or make any decisions for herself.
"So, when I participated in the revolution, it was the first time that I feel like I did something I really wanted," she said.
