Hadeel El Deeb
Hadeel El Deeb graduated in 2004 from the American University in Cairo with a BA in Broadcast Journalism and has been working in Public Relations since then. She has experience working with hotels, law firms, luxury brands, music talents, and had started her own online magazine in 2013.
El Gouna has a very special place in Hadeel’s heart; it is where she first met her husband in 2009, started a life together five years after, watched her baby take her first steps in 2018, and where she learned a whole new side about herself with the new found love of water sports.
In April 2019, Hadeel and her husband left El Gouna to start a new adventure with their toddler in Muscat, Oman where she will continue to write and work on her first book to be published in the near future.
In 2018, Kelly was inducted as a full-time Gounie, when she took up her post as Business and English teacher at the El Gouna International School, and has since vowed to never leave the town she dreamed of residing in for over a decade.
With a penchant for all things creative, Kelly spends her time painting and writing - composing poetry and creative short stories for a variety of audiences - as well as meditating, diving and fine-dining when rest and relaxation is required.
