Freelance science journalist

Member since Aug 2023

I am a freelance science journalist dedicated to bridging the gap between cutting-edge research and the general public. Armed with a solid educational foundation and an unquenchable curiosity, I always work to discover more about science and journalism to deliver insightful stories that inform, inspire, and captivate.

I began my journey by graduating from the Faculty of Pharmacy at Cairo University in 2010, where I acquired a scientific background that would later form the bedrock of my writing career. Eager to combine my love for science with my enthusiasm for storytelling, I participated in the Science Journalism Workshop conducted by the British Council in Egypt. This experience was pivotal in my career, as I secured the first-place victory in the workshop's final competition. This win reinforced my belief in the power of clear and compelling science communication.

I sought to enhance my skills further. So, I completed the Health Journalism MOOC offered by DW Akademie and proudly emerged as one of seven winners in the final competition. My dedication to continuous improvement led me to participate in the Science Journalism MOOC offered by DW Akademie in 2023, ensuring that my knowledge and techniques remained cutting-edge in the dynamic field of science communication.

Within the past two years, I have contributed to renowned media outlets, including Al Jazeera Network, Sci-Dev, and Ida2at. These platforms have allowed me to explore diverse scientific topics, from breakthroughs in medical research to environmental advancements, showcasing my versatility as a writer.

One of the highlights of my career was the comprehensive coverage of the first AIST (Advances in Science and Technology) conference in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region in June 2023. I have reported an important scientific paper that would change how factories can retain iron lost within manufacturing processes.

As I continue navigating the frontiers of science journalism, I am excited about expanding my reach to foreign science news outlets. By leveraging my unique blend of scientific expertise and storytelling finesse, I aim to contribute to international conversations that have the potential to shape the world's understanding of science and its impact on society.

It is also important to mention that I have attended the Arab Forum of Science, Media, and Communication for two consecutive years. It helped me gain valuable information that helped me advance in my career.
