MANAGEMENT

Maram Mohamed

Founder/ CEO/ Editor in Chief/Writer

Ciao tutti, I am Maram Mohammed, an almost 17 year old who really just aspires to be someone she is proud of when she is inhaling her last breath. I have always had this overwhelming pull to literature, art and psychology. I have always been so intrigued by it all. And perhaps, I just knew that my path is in-between all those lines and letters upon letters on the pages of my never ending book collection. It wasn’t until two years ago, when I decided that I will do something about this overwhelming passion. Instead of hiding all of my writings in the depth of my drawers, I read them out loud. I posted them online and then I decided to start my own platform. A space, from scratch, for more creative peeps like me to express. On the first of August 2018, my first child was born, Milkyway Magazine. My child is now a handsome almost 2-year-old and I am falling in love with him more and more as the days pass by.

Omar Elmahy

IT Director

Hello there. It’s Omar Elma7e, but you can call me Elmahy. I’m 17 years old and a senior as of now. I’ve been a web designer for quite a while now and a graphic designer. I’m Egyptian and I live in KSA, Jeddah. I joined the magazine in April of 2019 — almost a year. I am primarily passionate about taking photographs. My favorite sport that I practice is swimming. I am always down to work on subjects for the magazine almost all the time. I joined Milkyway Magazine because I wanted to share my skills and improve on them as I grow with the magazine, and gladly, I became better and found people there that are like my brothers/sisters and it so far has been a great community that I’m proud to be a part of.

Nada Elnady

Managing Director/ Senior Writer

Hey guys! I’m Nada, an extremely sarcastic being who has a great taste in music and is too curious for her own good. I’m a simple girl of 18 who is the eldest of her siblings and lives on reading and scribbling her thoughts down on paper (actually typing them on my phone but oh well). I started writing a couple years ago, taking it as a hobby that I practice during free time and a means of receiving praise from my teachers who always gave me high grades when I do it. As I grew up failing to find ears to listen, I strived to find eyes to read, one of the reasons why I joined the magazine. I grew a strange attachment to my only means of comfort and consolation and thus, held on it with my teeth and claws. l discovered the beauty that can be put into a few written lines that rhyme at the end, the amount of undefinable power and indescribable emotion they can express.

Lara Abdelhaleem

Communication Specialist

Hello! I am Lara Abdelhaleem. I am 21 years old and a Virgo! I am a Communication and Media major. I am the Social media manager of this great platform.

And starting the day with a beautiful smile, energy, and mindset. A fun fact about me is that I speak a little bit of Spanish.

Mennatullah Ahmed

Arabic Assistant to the CEO/ Staff Arabic Writer

Hii everyone!! I am Mennatullah, a 16-year-old girl who finds writing to be her only haven, an integral part of her and the most comfortable, non-judgmental shelter in which she finds her way to transform the randomness and feelings lying inside her into letters that could hopefully touch someone’s heart one day. An overthinker that loves escaping from the real world into her own world which she herself has created by her thoughts, her blank papers, and her inky pen. A book worm who lives thousands of lives between the lines of her beloved books and the stanzas of her favorite poems. A person who firmly believes in the motive, “if there is a book you want to read but hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it!” and your new defense against dark arts griffindor-sorta teacher!

SENIORS

Shahi Ezz El-Din

Senior Writer

Heyy everyone. I am shahi, a 16 year old bibliophilic mess. I believe that the girl who reads books today will be the girl writing them tomorrow, so here I am, spreading my thoughts around with every keystroke and scramble of paper. Wandering often, stargazing always. With an aspire to make the world a better place with a humble mindset and a sunny spirit.

Khaled Mohammed

Senior Editor

Hi. I’m Khaled, an editor here at Milkyway Magazine. I’m quite flattered to see you checking out my bio, considering you didn’t just scroll past it. Since you’re already here, I suppose I should tell you a bit about myself. I’ll (hopefully) be graduating high school in 2021, I’m an avid reader, eater, YouTube-watcher, and overall a huge geek. I write occasionally when the bulb lights up, but for the most part, I’m here to support and offer guidance to our amazing writers. I think that’s enough about me. Tschüss.

WRITERS

Aya El Saiedy

Staff Writer

Hey, kids! I’m Aya: an unidentified creature that only comes out at night, but doesn’t live under your bed, don’t worry. I’m obsessed with mystery and inspection, sunsets, dogs, coffee, Colleen Hoover’s books, Marina and the diamonds, and so many more things. I’m a really nice and friendly person, or I try to be as much as I possibly can, and I’m all about self-love and care. I believe that you can never truly be happy unless you’re happy with who you are as a person. I have so many hobbies and creativity outlets like reading, writing (hence the reason I’m here), drawing, painting and moree. Still figuring myself out, I guess. I can get really creative, all it takes is a few strong emotions that keep me up at night and there you go, art.

Mariam El Sanabary

Staff Writer

I am Mariam El Sanabary, but they call me Sabane5 and don’t ask why. I am in love with books and reading which led me to working here. I sometimes feel too much, other times I feel nothing. I am the perfect contradiction you will ever meet. I love this weather and fantasy and as a typical 15 year old I hate school. My mom is my idol in life, she’s the greatest person you can ever meet. My family is my priority then comes everything else. The last two years gave me the best and hardest lessons I have ever come to learn. May 2020 teach us, not kill us.

Farida Ahmed

Staff Writer

Hey! I’m Farida, a ‘head in the clouds’ kinda girl. I mix up constellations in the universe and come up with emotion-filled poems that -i hope- will sweep you off the ground. I first started writing because no one listens so I decided to tuck tiny galactic miracles of poetry into every heart that didn’t listen. That’s how I got into the magazine. Another thing about me is that I’m in love with reading and music. Lastly, TV series are what keep me functioning.

Mariam Hisham

Staff Writer

Hi! I’m Mariam Hisham. I’m 17 years old. I’m an English writer here at the magazine. I’ve been writing since I was 10; I see writing as my way to communicate with the world as i’m a super introverted person. I’m a huge fan of reading, cooking and painting. I take huge interest in music and anything art-related. I’m willing to explain all of the people’s unspoken words and to make as many people as I can happy!

Sarah Mandor

Staff Writer

Hey guys, I am Sarah Mandor a person who loves hearing everyone and said to be an overthinker, I overthink and analyze everything around me to come up with conclusions about everything around us and deliver it in an easy way by my words. I aspire to make a change in life and to influence as much lives as I can.

Salma Mohamed

Staff Writer

Hello it’s Salma , a 17 years old English / Arabic writer in the magazine , Unusual as it may seem to many of us, specially in our relatively young generation, I decided to take my second step on the path of my old aging dream, we’ve all been raised with the encouragement of finidng ourselves a hobby or more that may help us spend our time doing a thing we love, still we lacked the guidance to carry forward and become elites in this hobby, I believe in dreams coming true, I love discovering others potential and ignitting it, we all have abilities that will one day make a perfect combination with our personalities, from all these believes I decided to start by myself by making what I write under the light of criticism, keeping it for myself won’t help me improve, a step that is a precursory challenge for bigger steps to come ! You probably would find my writings an actual rollercoaster that will take you from the deepest minds ever to somehow the simplest language ever , I have always believed that simplicity is the only way you can reach someone’s heart before mind, that’s why you could see clearly how I try to create a massive mixture between the simple language but yet the deepest words ! So yeah this is me and I hope you guys enjoy the few writings of my own , love you all 🤍

Jana Amin

Staff Writer

Hiiii everybody, I’m Geniee, of course not a real geniee haha. 🧞 But I hope to solve your problems through my writings just like the geniee did to Aladin’s. Aww and I love writing romantic poems, sensitive social topics, and short wise quotes too, oh also I’m 15!

Lojain Assem

Staff Writer

Hi there! This is Lojain, a survivor, I guess. I’m turning 18 this January, just got finished with my senior year as an IGCSE student and now preparing for my first year as a college student. Since forever, I’ve been so sociable and interactive with anyone even new people, it’s a matter of fact that I’m able to adapt anywhere with anyone, which makes life easier. Reading books and writing are where I seek my solace and ease the cruel world’s effects. Writing allows me to figure out my vague thoughts, and think more about them, which makes me able understand myself more. A creature obsessed with Friends and Sherlock Holmes, that’s who I’m. Crime and murder are where I find myself, I’m the books don’t worry, I’m harmless, or not😈, who knows. But I’m a fighter🥷, against anything and in favor to justice and my beloved ones, I defend then attack.

Hazem Ashraf

Staff Writer

Hi there, I’m Hazem Ashraf, 26 years old, a Civil Engineer, Writer, Chess player, and jogger. I wanna talk about why I’m writing, I usually develop the reason from time to time, to avoid boredom and to continue what I had started. You know Lord Voldemort? the villain from the Harry Potter Series, I’ve learned something from him, which is not evil btw, but it worked for me. In brief, Voldemort divided his soul to be stored in physical objects called Horcruxes seeking immortality, and that’s why I’m actually writing. Unfortunately, death is the inevitable end of all the living creatures, I’m trying to be always alive through my lines, I think, we as humans, when we create something out of passion and love, it keeps a part of our souls in it, that’s why I believe we’re kind of immortals if we really loved what we do, I write to make the show always go on, even If I’m not around, if there’s still only one reader, then my soul will always remain.

Mariette Ehab

Content Writer

Hey everyone! My name is Mariette, one of the writers here. I am almost 19, IB alumni, and currently studying communication and media in the Netherlands. I am passionate about the arts in general, but most literature and film. I am a film and TV shows enthusiast, a fun facts generator, and an animal lover. I am also an ambivert, 50% introverted, 50% extroverted. (But I will always be an introvert at heart 🙂 ) I am a knowledge and experience seeker, and I love learning and trying new things every day.

Nadeen Ghoniem

Content Writer

Heyy everyone!! I’m Nadeen, a 16 year old who has lived a bunch of different lives; weird I know, but books tend to do that to you. Basically, I’m an awkward nocturnal fella that does nothing but stay cooped up inside her room to read and write. Something about being able to transfer to another era through books has always fascinated me so I guess you can say I’ve lived the lives of doctors, wizards, and even immortals. That’s what lead to my love for writing. In a way, it’s my means of escape, but that’s not all what it is. I enjoy the process of writing, and the rush I get when it all comes together. It’s like I’m emptying all that’s hidden in my heart, mind and soul then rearranging it like a puzzle the way I prefer. When I write, I’m being honest with myself whereas the rest of the world blurs into the background. Now, I don’t like to describe myself because “to define is to limit, and I insist on my right to be multiple,” but if there’s one thing that can truly define me, it’s that I’m a writer and being a writer in itself has made me multiple.

Dina Elkhateeb

Content Writer

Hi everyone! I’m Dina, the assistant to the Managing Director here. I’m passionate about writing, photographing, painting and any form of art. I also play sports and try to develop my physical and personal skills.

Hi folks! I am Jana, an Egyptian born in 2005 who’s literally interested in anything and everything.
