Congratulations, Saad. You entered into our Quick Challenge rather late, but you managed to impress us nevertheless. What you said in your video about stereotyping by the media really touched the heart of everyone on the C:F team. You raised a good issue on our platform because our competition is so global (with participants from more than 64 countries), we are sure a lot of us are also suffering from one form of stereotyping or another just like you mentioned.

Some say that stereotyping is an inescapable part of our human nature. Our early ancestors might have used this "labelling" technique to manage and prepare for the unknown. However, in the globalized and interconnected world we live in now, there should be no reason why we can't comprehend each other, there is no reason why we need to resort to stereotyping, especially stereotyping those who are in need of help and understanding instead of mockery.

CF team strongly encourages everyone to view Saad's video !
