Ahmed Mourad (February 14, 1978) is a famous Egyptian writer, novelist, and professional photographer. Before starting his writing career, Mourad worked as a personal and private photographer to former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.
Ahmed Mourad was a student of The Lyceé School, one of Egypt's former French schools that has turned into a government school for the education of the poor and is currently left in decay.
In a signature party, Mourad admitted that he failed both grade four and his senior year and had to restart the following years because of his grades. When asked why he failed, he said that he loved photography so much, he concentrated on it more than he concentrated on his education, and was distracted because of his passion for photography and filmmaking.
