A guerrilla fighter-turned-journalist and former first lady of Iraq, Hero Ibrahim Ahmed draws inspiration from the strong women who have struggled bravely for the cause of Kurdish independence.

When international media picked up her video footage documenting battle scenes in the mountains of Kurdistan, she began to use journalism as an alternative method of combat. Ahmed, 68, now runs the Kurdish Satellite television channel KurdSat as well as several Kurdish newspapers and magazines.
