Wael Ghonim Bio

Wael Ghonim is an Internet activist and computer engineer, Google’s Middle East and North Africa Marketing Manager. As “ElShaheeed,” he started up an influential Facebook page that galvanized voices of protest in Egypt. In early 2011, he was detained by the Egyptian government for 11 days — when freed after international pressure, he revealed his identity, and became a leading fugure in the youth revolution that forced Hosni Mubarak from power.    “”Our revolution is like Wikipedia, okay? Everyone is contributing content, [but] you don’t know the names of the people contributing the content. This is exactly what happened. Revolution 2.0 in Egypt was exactly the same. Everyone contributing small pieces, bits and pieces. We drew this whole picture of a revolution. And no one is the hero in that picture.””Warl Ghonim on 60 MinutesContact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Wael Ghonim and other top speakers and celebrities.
