How did you find out or get involved with Egypt Ice Hockey?

Being Egyptian as well as a hockey lover, I was curious to know if there was a National team for Egypt. I did some research about 5 years ago and found that there was a men’s team that was on the rise. I reached out to the team via Facebook Messenger to explore the possibility of joining them for a skating session during my time in Egypt. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out due to scheduling, and I was unable to skate with the team. That being said, I continued to follow the team on social media, and when it came time for the women’s team to be created, I was reached out to by Coach Ramadan.

What’s your earliest hockey memory and what got you into hockey?

I began figure skating at the age of 9 and continued for roughly two years. While I enjoyed figure skating, I developed a keen interest in hockey.
