I’m a Cairo based Entrepreneur/Blogger/Social Media Expert. I’m currently a co-founder at The Workshops, with a passion to transfer skills in Egypt with a hope to go World Wide. I also have a passion for Social Media, Translation, Editing, Training and IT literacy. I also work as Global Voices Online Lingua Coordinator and Arabic Lingua Editor, as well as Global Voices Advocacy. My work ranges from supporting the 35 languages where Global Voices is translated to, plus working on increasing Arabic content on the Internet. On a side note, I volunteer as a Translation Moderation team member for Arabic Twitter. I’m interested in a wide spectrum of topics, with a special interest in Social Media, Translation, Editing, Training, IT literacy, politics, technology, as well as the relation between Social Media and Traditional Media.
After achieving a major in Biomedical engineering in October 2010, I decided to switch careers to work as a Social Media consultant for Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper till October 2011, when I joined forces with Global Voices Staff. You can find my occasional English pieces in Global Voices here, and my translations to Arabic here. In 16 October 2012 I co-founded The Workshops.
I must thank my good friends and web developers, Hisham Sadek and Jeremy Clarke, for helping me with WordPress technical support and helping me with customizing the theme and plugins. I also want to thank my dear friend Esraa ElTaweel for helping me with designing my Web2.0 blog TechnoEmedia
