It took Suzanne Mubarak a year after her husband became president to decide what kind of first lady she wanted to be. Then she accepted the challenge of an American professor and went into the slums. For eight years, she has worked among her country's teeming poor to bring education and hope to impoverished children. Mubarak describes herself as a "hands-on social worker."
