Amal Ahmed Albaz is a freelance journalist, poet and speaker. She completed her bachelor of journalism from Ryerson University in 2015 before she became a reporter with the Toronto Star. Before then, she covered stories on the ground in Egypt’s Rab’a Square during the coup, and interviewed Syrian refugees on the streets of Istanbul.
Amal is an international spoken word poet and speaker with a vision to change the world– one word at a time. She has spoken at conferences around the world, from east to west, and gave a TEDx talk when she was 16. In her free time (if she has any), she’s sewing a dress, taking pictures or learning something new. Life is her battlefield, and words are her weapon.
