Amira Elghawaby

Ottawa, Canada

I've been writing for what feels like forever.

Passion for the written word once took me half-way around the world to Cairo, Egypt, and has since allowed me to explore critical issues right here at home in Canada's capital city. I write on a range of topics ranging from education, to security, to immigration, to culture; whatever is current.

My reporting and commentary appear in Canada's national newspapers, including the Globe and Mail and Toronto Star. I also write for alternative & mainstream websites, reaching a cross-section of readers representative of our diverse communities.

I've moved the written word from the page to the airwaves at CBC Radio, where I continue to contribute content that explores our individual & collective stories.

Social justice, human rights, tolerance, and civic engagement inform all that I do. That includes searching for answers to important questions.
