Ahmed Elzoghbi, a Canadian Egyptian pharmacist and blogger. His videos on YouTube won millions of views where he shared his experience as an immigrant in Canada. Later, he had been nominated as one of the best Arab immigrants around the world.
His aim is to build an integrated effective community within the Canadian society, not an isolated ethnic group.

Ahmed is a human rights advocate and anti war activist. Moreover, he also created “Canadian Egyptian” group on Facebook, which became the largest Arab Canadians group on the internet, where he works on building links of respect and understanding between different cultures. 






Ahmed was born in Egypt to a big family “Elzoghbi”. His father was an engineer and his mother was a doctor. He married to Hala, "half Egyptian half Lebanese" pharmacist and they have two children.
After graduation from faculty of pharmacy, Ahmed gained experience through working in the health sector for the Egyptian government. After that, he started his own pharmacy. Meanwhile he was passionate about the humanitarian work of Red Cross organization. He joined them later and became of the most effective youth cadres in the Egyptian revolution events. His team helped thousands of violence victims during conflicts.

After immigrating to Canada, Ahmed shifted his career to the clinical research which is his field of specialty today.  Despite his overcrowded weekly schedule, he finds time to practice his favorite hobbies; cycling and aviation!
