Maisah Sobaihi served as a panelist on the first ASDA’A Burson-Marsteller Arab Youth Survey, in 2008, on a cross-cultural study of Arab and Western youth, alongside Mark Penn, Mohammad Alabbar and Hassan Fattah.
From where I stand, you can see the walls are coming down. The way Arab and Western cultures perceive each other is definitely changing, particularly among the youth. There has undoubtedly been a positive change following the election of Barack Obama, and young Arabs view the United States with a greater sense of faith. – Dr. Sobaihi
