On air and off

Speaking about her work, Farah is visibly moved.

The 23-year-old is a presenter, writer, producer, and editor for the station. Her programs address the position of girls and young women in the country, a subject close to her heart.

‘As a young woman, I really care about other young women here,’ she says. ‘I want their voices to be heard and for them to be respected. I want their souls to be healed because they are hurting and tired.

‘There are many people in Iraq who are very tired, in many different ways, and I like to help them.

‘Women trust us, and talk openly with us,’ she says. ‘Often they have no one really to talk to. Perhaps that is why radio is so appealing: they can talk to us, and we listen – on air and off.’
