Marwa is a Curator in the Education Department of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. She is especially interested in educational museums, and one of her major ambitions is to create catalogues for children, to help them during their visit to the Egyptian museum. She is passionate about learning new ways to be active with children in the museum environment, as well as developing new and creative programmes for disabled children.

During her time on the International Training Programme in 2014, Marwa was based in the Department of Egypt and Sudan and her partner placement was spent at Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, Newcastle.
