Dina Aboughazala

Founder, Egab, Egypt

Dina is an Egyptian media entrepreneur and a bilingual journalist, who spent 14 years working for the BBC before launching her media startup, Egab (egab.co) in August 2020.

Egab empowers local journalists from the Middle East and Africa to publish in regional and international media outlets stories that challenge stereotypes and dominant narratives about their communities. Egab specialises in solutions journalism; a genre focused on reporting how people respond to problems in their communities.

During her years at the BBC, Dina covered political, social, economic, cultural and media developments in the MENA region.

Dina holds an MA in Interactive Journalism from City, University of London, and when she’s not busy running her startup, she would be giving talks and training sessions on solutions journalism and diversity and inclusion in the media.
