Hello friends,
What a journey it's been to get here!! From leaving Egypt exactly 10 years ago, this month, to almost dying a month ago in a car accident. This film is about the journey in between and the massive role the internet played in my life. I dedicate this film to the free child in each of us to dream the biggest and wildest we can.
And on a personal note, thank you to every single person who saw me, loved me and challenged me along the journey.
All my love,
Hey Guys,
Burning Boat here! We couldn’t be more grateful for being given the opportunity to work on another Yes Theory project and especially one so personal to Ammar. Tomorrow we're releasing a super interesting in-depth podcast, featuring Ammar, about the process of making this film, so stay tuned for that! A huge thanks to everyone who helped make this project a reality!

    What an amazing video. To see people that have suffered and endured so much at such a young age, being so positive, generous and friendly truly leaves me speechless. Thank you for sharing this different outlook and I really hope the situation there changes in the future, as these beautiful people deserve so much better.

    Today I faced a very hard moment of my life and my family made me feel down and bad in a very complicated level. i neve thought i will ever have to relate to Ammar like this. 17 is not old enough to do the things Ammar did. tings happened that made me feel why did i have to want such opposite things, wouldn"t it have been less complicated if i was not like myself? but i am myseelf and i want to live my life to the fullest. THANK YOU AMMAR, THANK YOU YES THEORY.

    That's the most inspired story I've ever seen, and to Ammar as a we are the same nationality I know exactly what you been through, I know exactly how it affected on you, how much desperation and negative energy puts on you, I was so happy at the end of video for you had overcome the despair, without an envy i consider you lucky to have such supportive friends who's never give up on you, Unfortunately I'm at the exactly same situation as you at the step that when you got lost, the only difference here is i got no friends to give me the support. Actually I'm blaming nobody but my self, I'm the one chooses to leave Egypt and go to live in Thailand so its ended up without my friends or the ability to even make a new friendships in here. God bless and your friends i wish to you guys always being happy and together forever.

    I only found out about your existence a week ago and I already cannot leave you anymore. I think you have this gift, to connect. You are the point of connection. I am a cellist and I so much aspire to develop this gift you were born with. My days became so much more happy and full of hope since I heard you speaking your learned about your existence. I now dream of meeting you and thank you for letting me connect with you by telling me (us) your story. I are very much loved and appreciated and I can only wish to be alive to witness and hopefully become part of this city of yours

    Ammar I'm just unknown person but I know that deep down your Dad Loves You more than anything. If he wrote to you like that, that means he's only comfort and love you more than anyone at your family, that is why wrote to you like that not that he hates you but he *loves you* the most. Until now he still misses you, but deep down he's also cheering for you and take this as a stepping stone in your life. God blessed and make things happen, make yourself happy and make more than a dad proud son... And last but not the least... Love you Yes Theory...❤️ Just to let you know I subscribed *today 16-February-2021* your Channel because of Dalai Lama and also because of guys and also that I adore from his smile Ammar love you brother❤️🙏❤️.

    I am going through the very similar situation here right now and I choosed the totally different path just because I do not have the power in this 1 year I searched all these things... "how to heal depression" "how to love myself" "how can I go against the will of my father and family" and when the things were not going the way I wanted I searched this... "how to break ties with family" there are soo many restrictions and I am still finding a way to overcome them. Seriously you have to go through soo many things when you do not get the support which you need and from where you need. I am still 17 and have a long way to go but I still hope that my future to be how I want it to be. I totally understand this VIDEO. Though it won't be of much help but still,..... Amar and the family of YES THEORY I wish to god that you all always stay together and share the important moments in life and go a very very long way. I also wish to god that Amar daa ("daa" means brother in Hindi)to reconcile with is father. wish you a good luck!

    Not gonna lie this video inspires me so much! As a person that never had to do hard decisions like you Ammar, I just realized that I HAVE TO do what I truely wanna do with my life and that there is not one reason for me to not follow my dreams! If you could do it in such a really hard way with all the struggle you had, I have no excuse to do something that I really want in my life - even if I am afraid to take this step! Thank you so much for your openness, it opened my eyes! #AllForOne❤🌍

    This was beautiful. Thank you team and thank you Ammar. Coming from a complicated immigrant background myself, I can relate to your story. I stumbled across your Channel almost a year ago when the pandemic hit and the global lockdown was happening while I was at work abroad and therefore isolated when the countries closed their borders. You have inspired me and gave me courage during these times. You have succeeded in your mission because I am just one out of these millions of people you have touched and changed. More to come from me. I'll be in touch. Much love and freedom in discomfort.

    After watching this video, I remembered my case, but it is nothing compared to the case of Ammar, but I learned a lesson from this. In 2018, on May 25, I had my birthday, I was doing an industrial practice in another city and they let me go early, they only told me to take the parcel to one place. After I delivered the package, I wanted to cross the road, there was a green light, but ... I was hit by a car. I did not feel pain, the blow was not strong and I "flew" a short distance, but those seconds that I felt when I fell ... my eyes were like a camera lens (as if this was not happening to me, but in some film) , my body was light instantly and I fell on my side. They wanted to take me to the traumatology department, but I refused, the man who was in the car took me, he himself was in shock. Bottom line: I remembered this small incident, and I am really grateful that I am alive. 😅😌

    After seeing his son not doing the things he is suggesting, a father tells to his son: You will never be a person that I will be proud of. This happens during the high school years of his son. This statement ignites son's emotions and passions to become such a person and make his dad wrong about his opinion. He leaves his home after high school and does not talk to his dad for years. Finally he makes a great career and becomes a mayor in their own city. After he settles down in his office, he sends 2 guys from his assistants to bring his dad to his office. The guys go to his father's house and tell him that mayor ordered to bring him to his office. For some reason, he was not interested who is the mayor. He is focused in his own job and life maybe. When he comes to the mayor's office, the mayor that is his son stands and talks to him: Did you see how I became a person that you can be proud of? but saying this with a feeling for taking revenge. and his dad replies: I did not say you could not be a mayor. I said you would never become a person with a personality that can make me proud of you. If you were able to do that, you would come and visit me at home, instead of ordering me to come to your office.

    anyone can make a great career. but if that career does not mean anything to your family, your parents, and make them feel ashamed because of the things you do, don't tell me you are living a great life. In fact you may. But, you are making the 2 people very upset who brought you to this world and did everything to make you survive. There are things that can be learned by doing a study, and there are things that cannot be learned unless experienced in person. You will understand the impact of your choices on your parents' emotions and lives after you come to their age and experience the same, but it will be too late. Do not say you are Muslim, unless you are living like a Muslim. There are many things in your videos that should not exist in the life of a Muslim.
