One year after Mohammed Buazizi set himself on fire in the small town of Sidi Bouzid in Tunisia, starting the first of the revolutions now known as The Arab Spring, Mtv News sent me and Gian Micalessin in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt to report about what had changed. Was the revolution a success? How where our Libyan friends Mohammed, Tarek and Mowada doing? What had changed in their lifes now that Geddafi was dead. What were the boys in Tahrir Square doing?
We stayed in North Africa for over a month, across Christmas and New Years Eve and we found out. Some things had changed, others had not.
This is a clip from the Tunisian chapter. Maha, a nurse who now lives and works in Paris was one of the first to live blog the revolution through her facebook page. Can you imagine the courage it took to do that?
A year after she's coming back home, celebrating the anniversary of the beginning of the revolution. In the very same days Paris Match had nominated her among the ten most infuential women of 2012.
I'm proud of this work and feel lucky to have had the chance to meet strong, inspiring people like Maha.
