Mohamed Mamdouh is this giant of a man, who skillfully slides from one great role into the other, changing like a chameleon and flabbergasting us every single time a new. He is this very deep sea with a seemingly calm surface and we are surely up for a ride.
In your opinion, how would you define manhood?
Manhood is being a man of your word. Not only should a man keep his word to others, but keep his word to himself.
What are the misconceptions about manhood that we inherit?
I think the general misconceptions that we inherit are that “men don’t cry” or “a man is defined by how much he earns”. In my opinion, this is all nonsense.
Do men cry? When was the last time you cried?
A man is a human being and all human beings have the capability of crying. The last time I cried was when I lost my dear friend and mentor Mahmoud El Rifai.
” Not only should a man keep his word to others, but keep his word to himself.”
How did your parents help you understand the meaning of manhood?
My parents taught me that manhood means independence, being successful and most importantly love and stick with your family for better and for worse.They taught me how to never allow anyone’s actions define my own, and to always aim high and never give up.
In your opinion, what does the word “Estargel” mean?
In my opinion the word “Estargel” is associated with being responsible. This word doesn’t bother me at all. I just believe that we are losing the real essence of this word.
How can we change society’s view about manhood?
Men should completely change their perspective of women.They should stop feeling intimidated by the power of women. They should start supporting the women in their lives and be proud of their success. My sisters played a huge role in making me the man I am today.
