He then focused on designing, where he has proven himself as a professional editor and photographer. He further volunteers to work for several developmental foundations and charitable groups to support Luxor community.

Only 22 years old, Ali helped many talents and supported them, and he was honored as an ambassador for humanity in the Arab Creators Conference.

Tourist expert Mohamed Othman, the head of the Cultural Tourism Marketing Committee in Luxor, said that tourism flow is expected to return gradually as citizens maintain commitment to precautionary measures. Othman added that there are a number of countries that have already set a plan to resume international flights to several destinations including Egypt.

Othman further said that trainings will be launched in full swing for workers who directly deal with tourists, like street vendors, and bazar owners.
