Born in Cairo in 1982, El Akkad grew up not too far off in Doha. He moved to Canada in the late 1990s where he eventually studied at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario with a degree in computer science. Today he lives in Portland, Oregon. He has moved on from his journalistic efforts to focusing on his writing career as he has a very large amount of experience and knowledge of many situations from around the world that have made a true difference in how he writes.
Much of El Akkad’s work has focused on many of the conflicts that have occurred throughout the world. These include conflicts relating to political ideologies, race and other important factors. He has learned about many issues around the world and has found that people will have to change if they are to make the world any better. There are especially devastating threats that could come about around the world if people are unable to change their lives.
