Ashna Shareff

Ashna grew up in Hawler and is currently pursuing a degree in international relations at the University of Kurdistan - Hawler.

Though she already publishes articles on Facebook, Ashna hopes the workshop will help her reach more people interested in politics and democracy in Kurdistan.

"As a young female, I feel women's voices has lost its effectiveness in this region. They need to heard by the world, not only by people in Kurdistan. My aim in becoming a journalist will be to encourage women, youths, children to struggle in order to reach their full potentials."
