I am Ahmed, Yehia Ahmed yes, like James Bond, writer and founder of Uncaged. I started Uncaged in 2018 and it was an idea of me sharing my articles, but now having the team is like a dream coming true! I am just a regular 20 year old Vegan guy who loves being the underdog in any race because I will end up winning this race. And also, the only thing you should know about my life is that I'm obsessed with Pink Floyd.
I’m Malak, the Co-Owner and Editors Head here at Uncaged. Feel free to call me Malo! After trying to discover my passion for years, I came to the conclusion that writing is the thing that pushes me forward and the career path I want to follow. Uncaged gave me the opportunity to express myself and progress my talent further and I plan on rising up high with it!
I thought it’s time to start living life like I had imagined it, so here I am, writing, listening to music, spending time with my dog and reading :)
I’m Lara, the Poets Head and also an IGCSE victim if you may call it. I’m currently drowning in assignments as I'm writing this, so please bear with me.
I'll start off with the obvious, I'm a writer and a poet. Poetry has always been my escape from reality ever since I was in the fifth grade and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I love music (especially The Weeknd's music but lets not get into that hahaha), I love discovering artists and new genres; by far my most favorite form of self expression.
I'm also a psychology nerd, I enjoy learning about the human mind and how us Homo Sapiens have evolved.
I aspire to write about all of the good, the bad & the ugly.
Hi, I’m Malak the head leader of writers. My life motto is everything happens for a reason, because it really does. Small or big everything has a reason, it's called the butterfly effect. I’ve always had a problem communicating how I feel and understanding my emotions and writing has always helped guide me through everything. Ink on paper will always and forever be my safe haven.

Hi! I’m a nineteen year old aspiring designer who wants to make change, aid change, or be the change I want to see in the world. I believe that we learn more about ourselves in what we support and read online than what we support in real life, and that is because online platforms allow us to learn more about our morals without shame and without influence of what other people might think of us. This is precisely why I decided to become an editor at Uncaged; they present ideas that might affect you enough to remember them at least once after you’re done reading, and that is when I know that a magazine has succeeded.
Hey! My name is Srusti & I use she/her pronouns. I'm a sixteen-year-old high school kid who spends most of her time admiring surreal art by Irie Wata, Morten Lasskogen, or Frank Moth. When I'm not doing that, you'll find me listening to contemporary R&B, indie, or alternative rock music. I view life from way too many angles, talk about being a Gemini! Anyway, I hope my designs please you, and if they don't I hope both the sides of your pillow are warm at night.
Hey! It’s Marwan, one of the graphic designers here and an IB student. I’m 17 years old and I have been designing for the past year or so.

Hi, I don't know what to write
so I'll waste your time while you read my name, Mostafa Ahmad Saady and tell you that I love 22 by Taylor swift because now I'm 22 years old.I love to write (mostly sad stuff I don't know why I'm so weird) and the most important thing you have to know about me is that I'm the biggest TV shows, movies and music nerd.
Hey there, free spirit
I'm Aliaa, I'm in my 20s and a year from now, I'll be a pharmacist and I'm not quite sure if this will be the career path I'll follow, but well let's leave that to then.
I write, I scribble and paint words on the walls of my world, it's the only way for me to heal, it's the only way for me to express thoughts that aren't loud enough to be heard. I also write for the wounded ghosts and souls out there.
I love long car rides; listening to night travelers while writing letters that will never be read.
Oh and I love sunflowers, like crazy.

My comfort show is gilmore girls, I've watched it about a billion times that I know all the lines by now.

Thanks bye!

My name is Mohamed, 20 years old . Here is my point: Aesthetics come from art. And for me I like aesthetics therefore, I like seeing art, watching art, even listening to art. Also, I like using symbols and metaphors in my statements like I did now. I'm here for help, to recommend, to spread love and aesthetics, and sharing my enjoyment with people.

I am Roqaia Elsayed, a 19 -year-old girl from Giza. A friend suggested I join Uncaged as she acknowledged my writing skills, and my love for poetry and music.

I am Nada El Gohary, a student at Faculty of Mass Communication Cairo University.
What makes me feel better and happy is reading novels.
My favorite quote is “Every expectation comes, so expect what you wish.”
"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed" -Ernst Hemingway
This is my motto for writing or in my mind this is how it should be, a river fall of emotions on a piece of paper. A way you use to escape when you are experiencing pain or sadness ; a soul shower as I like to call it.
I'm a shy tall guy, who sweats when someone talks to him, very frightened and nervous to explain his point of view in front of people, but when it comes to a pen and paper I'm fearless.
What feeds my passion? That is, a tough question to answer it means that I've to explain that I'm a Gemini. So, anything I see, feel, smell, or even eat is a debate between two guys! And what settles all that? WRITING!! Because I am a dude playing a dude disgusted as another dude.
My name is Manar Ahmed, I’m 20 years old and I study business administration at MUST university.

Hello there! I'm Tasneem, a 15-year-old highschooler who fell in love with writing since forever. I found my passion in poetry and how expressive it can be, it was the healthiest way to pour my feelings since I'm a lazy writer who needs inspiration to even write a thing! Although I'm not writing about fictional characters that live their best lives in my head, I have found a way to write about the best version of myself, and how she views the world. I often write it all in my notes app, (not very aesthetic of me), but it helps because it's effortless to do so, thank you for reading about me and my undying love for poetry xx
Hi. I’m Malak Mohamed. I’m 19 and I live in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I’m a poetry enthusiast. I believe that poetry creates a sense of authenticity in a person’s identity. Therefore, throughout my years of experience, I’ve come to learn that poetry is a language of its own.

Hey, I’m Youmna from Alexandria. I’m 21 and I identify as a poet, a dreamer, a curious person in constant search of a new adventure, and as a Pisces maybe if that counts? I love exploring all arts, but poetry is the form where I’m most true to myself. I seek poetry in everything I do, whether it’s in writing, music, visual art, or just living, I simply love romanticizing everything. But in more practical terms, you can say I’m a photographer, filmmaker, journalist (that’s what I study and work as👀), and of course a poet, I think it’s clear now. I also happen to be a literature and art history enthusiast who plays the piano and often mentally teleports to a cottage in the English countryside where I can care for my animals and daydream in peace.
Hi, I am Noha Morshed (NM), a girl living in her twenties, trying to balance what she is good at with what she loves doing. I am a medical student, a practical person but will never disappoint you in delivering a good enjoyable piece of writing where you can let your imagination sink and wonder with every word you read. I have enjoyed writing for years and decided that sharing my words with everyone, who loves reading and happens to come across them, is my current goal to achieve in life. So, stay tuned!
A curious human being who has a certain curiosity about politics, sufism, mental health, philosophy and life in general. I aspire to make change. I want to talk about subjects people don’t usually talk about and bring awareness to things people didn't know existed.

Hi, I'm Amira I'm turning 20 this month. Ever since I was a child joining mass-com was my dream, but I wasn't able to achieve it, so here I am today a student in FMI and joined the multimedia committee in various student activities to satisfy what I have been dreaming of so long, ever since I realized how much I love photography and created my own Instagram page.
Hello, I am Sama and I am 19. I believe that each human has theor own way of expressing and photography is my way of expressing myself. It has been my passion since I was 14. I just found my joy in documenting this moment and that scene and then it turned to a passion. I deeply find myself in shooting random street scenes and natural sceneries. I am not sure that photography would be my career or even a part of it but I am just moving with the flow :)
Hey there! It’s Maryam Mohamed, 19 YO, a second-year student at the Faculty of Economics and Political Science.
I'm obsessed with taking photos and showing people the hidden stories within the details of places through my eyes, using only the scope of my camera. That's why I love historical places, cause every detail has a different story to tell. I’m always looking forward to being an influential person who leaves a spark whenever she goes✨
I’m Rokaya Khaled, I’m 16 and I’m always passionate about my work. I was interested in photography since I was 12 and I constantly set goals for myself. If you know me well you'd know I’m so adventurous and hyped and always looking forward to try new things and get to know more people!
