Dr: Afaf Aly
Director

Dr Afaf Aly has over twenty-five years of experience as a media professional. She commenced her career as a TV director in Egypt before becoming an international journalist for several newspapers and magazines in MENA and Gulf. Dr Aly re-located to the United Kingdom in 1994, where she began working with the local community to raise awareness of cultural differences and fight racism. Upon moving to Northern Ireland, Dr Aly established the Egyptian and Arab Society of Northern Ireland, where she was elected as the chairperson for the organisation. During that period, Dr Aly established Crossing the Bridge magazine, which successfully published several editions and was distributed on a global scale. The magazine’s main aim was to facilitate and educate locals about the middle eastern culture and traditions.
Following the success of the Egyptian and Arab Society of Northern Ireland, Dr Aly was elected as a chairperson for the Egyptian Societies in Europe. Dr Aly is the recipient of several awards for her exceptional social activities in Northern Ireland, including awards from Antrim City Council, Belfast City Council, Lisburn City Council, Police Services in Northern Ireland and Unite Against Hate.
Dr Aly completed her bachelor’s degree in the University of Alexandria, Egypt, where she studied Sociology. After completing her undergraduate degree, Dr Aly continued her higher education and received her PgDip in Media Studies and a Doctorate degree in Media and Communications. After completing her studies, Dr Aly completed a one-year training course in Hanns-Seidel Foundation in Munich, Germany, for media studies. Following the training course, Dr Aly successfully completed a media project with the United Nations.
Dr Aly expressed her interest in education after building strong links with multiple universities across the MENA region, which led to successful partnerships to develop and promote education in the area. Since founding Crossing the Bridge company, Dr Aly has received multiple awards from leading bodies for her work in the education sector, including the Ulster University, the King Salman Award for higher education and Al Nahda University.
Finally, Dr Afaf Aly was amongst the thirty women world-wide who were recognised by the Egyptian government for her social and community work.
