Where to Start?

It\’s my first time to have a blog. I find it always confusing to talk about myself, especially to \’strangers\’ who may not know me, or who are just curious to know who this noisy guy is.
My interests and hobbies are many. This is not always a merit. It is simply an additional burden on me (and perhaps you as well) to find the easiest way to introduce myself.
I\’m ethnically mixed Afro-Arab. Some grandparents are Egyptian, but both my parents were born in Sudan, therefore I am Sudanese by nationality and passport. I would even say I\’m also Sudanese by soul and spirit. Sudan is as mixed as myself, and as contradicting as parts of me as well.
I have spent literally half my life in Egypt, namely Dokki District in Cairo from 1979-1994. In November 1994, I came to Sudan for the second time in my life. I came in a 2-week visit in 1989, only one month after the current military regime took over the power in Sudan.
I came to persue my studies after the Egyptian universities stopped the previous exceptions given to the Sudanese students who were previously treated equal to their Egyptian collegues. However, the political relation in the early 90s were teh worst possible between the two regimes. We were literally kicked out of Egypt. At least I had to either pay 3000 Sterling Pounds a year, or to return to Sudan, where I was offered a 500 USD/year faculty of medicine. I had to return, and I did.

Medical doctor specialized in bioethics and public health. Following my MBBS in Sudan, I had a master degree in bioethics from the University of Toronto, then a PhD in bioethics at the University of Birmingham, UK. I have been teaching medical ethics for undergraduate medical students, residents, public health practitioners and master students and provide consultations in ethics-related topics for many regional and international institutions. This website is where I try to share some of what I have learned in my professional journey, hoping that this will make your journey shorter and easier by avoiding the same mistakes and by gaining some extra miles.
