ECCAO would like to invite you to a QAHWA gathering on November 4th.

This Qahwa will feature a presentation from a wonderfully talented writer from our community here in Ottawa, Zahraa Waly!

Graduating from Cairo University with a Master’s in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Zahraa worked as a lecturing assistant at the university from a young age. When she and her family moved to Canada, she obtained another Master’s in Chemical Engineering from Laval University.

When she’s not working on saving the world by curing one disease at a time, Zahraa writes her beautiful Arabic prose and poetry on her facebook page, كتاباتي زهراء والي.

ECCAO is very excited to have Ms. Zahraa share her works with us, and as always we are pleased to be supporting and promoting some of the wonderful talents present in our Ottawa Egyptian Canadian community!

If you are interested, please RSVP by sending an email to There is limited space in the hall.

As always, ECCAO will supply the coffee and drinks. Feel free to bring some finger food to share.
