    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Rabah Karèche.
    I think he is brave because he was put into jail before, but he carried on because he knew it was the right thing to do, no matter what the consequences. The police have tried in vain to stop him, but even with this jail sentence, the public and journalists are protesting for his freedom.

      As you said that the people and the press are still trying to get him out, in your opinion, what is the motive that encourages them to do so? And how can they take advantage of it in order to solve the problem of persecution of rights by failed authorities and governments?

      The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Katsiarina Andreeva
      I consider her brave because she has devoted her time and life to doing her job better, and I respect her even more because she is a woman who has challenged society and has faced difficulties in uncovering facts and defending the right to express opinions. Peacefully, it was broadcast live from the streets of Minsk, and when he defended the right through the disbandment of a rally to commemorate the slain protester Raman Bandarinka, after the march, the authorities smashed the door of the apartment where Katsyrina and her partner were hiding, and this is one of the most striking examples. prominent actors who embody violence to cover up political scandals, treat the right to expression as an organized crime and set up procedures that flagrantly violate public order. diplomat and I have decided to aspire to be an ambassador to the United Nations so that I can convey my voice to all world leaders and urge the United Nations to pay more attention to defending the right to expression, not removing it to cover up political scandals. . So fear your political scandal, don't get involved and do it. Journalists have a duty to spread the truth, regardless of the reality and power of the party that unmasks it, and not to demonstrate its power as a policeman or as an authority on the truth. Under the title of the oppressor of rights, a failed ruler will only make people whose rights are oppressed, so you as a person do not keep your mouth shut, the truth is a right that everyone should know. He encourages her to rise up and reject injustice and rebel against corrupt rulers who want to spread corruption, and she encourages women to reject the violence and abuse that befalls them, which is to create a society that knows the meaning of freedom, as Albert Camus said that the only way to face a non-free society is to be so free, that your very existence becomes the law of rebellion, and I admire this brave journalist because she is one of the best examples of a brave woman fighting to vote to the right to express an opinion, if communicating the truth is a crime, I see that crime is a situation in Two lions who are deceiving like the ruler of the country and its administrator, Katsiarina encourages me to achieve a greater goal that I can complete my duty as a citizen who wants to demand human rights, and I prefer it because it perpetuates the memory of someone who was killed because he cried for his rights, and if the world will respect everyone, honor the journalists who gave their lives To convey the word of truth to this world and make it aware, and to rise up against injustice, their rights are not only something that a judge can decide with his hammer, on the contrary it is an obligation for everyone to respect it.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Bob Woodward,( born March 26, 1943) is an American investigative journalist. He started working for The Washington Post as a reporter in 1971 and currently holds the title of associate editor.

    I think he is brave because he exposed the Watergate scandal involving the administration of ex-president Richard Nixon from 1972 to 1974 that led to Nixon's resignation. The scandal stemmed from the Nixon administration's continual attempts to cover up its involvement in the June 17, 1972, break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Washington, D.C. Watergate Office Building. After the five perpetrators were arrested, the press and the U.S. Justice Department connected the cash found on them at the time to the Nixon re-election campaign committee. With the help of Bob and other journalists Nixon was impeached and justice was served.

    cannot deny many brave journalists, but I chose to write today about the brave Maltese journalist (Daphne Galizia). She focused on exposing the Panama Papers.. What Karuna Galizia achieved is not a simple thing. Rather, it raised a lot of blatant questions and provokes the anger of the corrupt.. In my personal opinion, many leaders and presidents fell in Malta by exposing their corruption. Caruana Galizia was saying, “Politicians simply cannot use the police to prosecute journalists who write about them and that the law that aims to protect the innocent from slander is wrongly dealt with by the powerful against those who oppose them.” The price of the word of truth and the price of her journalistic courage, so she was killed in an assassination accident in the explosion of the car she was traveling in.... Thus, a journalist's voice that stood between the rule of law and those seeking to violate it was liquidated. The word of truth... In this saying, we cannot but bow in reverence and reverence to that brave journalist at a time when I said the courage of the word.

    The brave journalist have chosen to write about is {Mubarak Selim}
    Because he was publishing the news and expressing it frankly and honestly without being afraid or intimidated by anyone and because he challenged his family and the closest people to him to become a journalist, rather a successful journalist, because his family, relatives and friends tried to stand in his way and prevent him from achieving his dream and spreading the real and correct news for fear. He was worried about people and criminals, except for his only friend,{ Barış Ozansoy}, who supported him and stood by him because he is a journalist like him because he knows the meaning of these words well.
    I admire him and consider him my role model because he challenged everyone, even the closest people to him, and he never gave up and died on his insistence
    Unfortunately, he died a few years ago in 2018, he is my hero because he was always spreading the truth, no matter the consequences 💕

    The brave journalist that I chose to write about is Hadeel Al Yamani. I think she is brave because she was patient and determined to stay and highlight what is happening in her country.
    She highlighted the tragedies of the war in Yemen, and how the of "Happy Yemen" live now, as well as revealing the spread of epidemic residents.
    This journalist was prevented from entering the United States to receive her award because she is from Yemen. She was deprived of her right because of racism between countries of nationalities.
    Hadeel influenced others through her love for her profession and her determination to spread what is happening in her country despite the war and the fire.
    I admire her because of her love for her homeland and her defense of it through her profession and her survival in it and her courage despite the war and the fire, and also her displacement from her mother, father and husband despite all that she conveyed the message of what is happening in her country.

        Dear @tiffanysmyly
        She wasn't allowed to travel to the US to accept that award in LA cause she was denied a visa to enter the United States under the Trump administration's travel ban.
        Willow Bay, the co-host of the event and dean of USC's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, said al-Yamani really wanted to attend the event, but her visa was denied because of the U.S. travel ban. "It's hard to imagine a woman award-winning journalist is denied entry to our country because by some estimation she's deemed a threat to our security and safety. That's puzzling and troubling," Bay said.

      I read many books about journalists, but I chose to write about this brave journalist, Octavia Nasr. I consider her brave because she tried to listen to life after a long journey in the field of media that lasted more than 26 years. This journalist made some political analyzes and coverage of the Lebanon war. The biggest difficulties I faced was finding a balance between a professional life that requires great efforts, in addition to the problems that naturally come with work. The great credit goes to Professor Pierre El-Daher, who encouraged and supported her.
      Its most prominent impact on others was the contribution of women in the field of media, and it was also a source of inspiration for all women.
      I liked this journalist because she entered the field of media as a woman and I thought that hearing her voice would change these concepts.

    What I liked about her: She is always optimistic, persistent and does not approach despair.

    I would like to tell you about a journalist that I admire, Vanessa Charlotte, a brave and strong journalist
    Vanessa Charlotte has achieved many practical achievements, one of her greatest accomplishments was receiving the Courage in Journalism Award from the International Women's Media Foundation. She was also the recipient of the Instagram New coverage of the New York Times of America, and she covered the 57th anniversary of the National (BLM) track, and also Covering all of former President Trump's rallies in St. Louis
    I think it impressed me because it covers stories where race, identity, politics and economics intersect, and because it has won many international and international awards.
    I hope you like it.

    1. The brave journalist I chose to write about is Dabo Oluronumi.

    2. I think he is brave because he has stood up for press freedom in Nigeria over the course of his decades-long career.

    3. The government tried to harass him and arrested him twice before his disappearance.

    4. This journalist influences others by providing them with strength and determination to defend rights and not remain silent about falsehood.

    5. I admire this journalist very much, because despite his arrest twice, his disappearance, his suffering and the endangerment of his life, he has been defending rights and exposing falsehood and not being silent about it. This is the right of everyone and also the right of the state.

    The brave journalist / Mohamed Mounir
    “I am free and my freedom is to do what I see right, and I will not allow you to besiege and strangle me, and I am at this age, life without dignity, death remains better,” said the Egyptian journalist writer Mohamed Mounir and left, after spending his life fighting with his courageous political stances and opinions.
    Munir, the owner of the free pen, opposed with his pen and opinion all forms of injustice and tyranny, throughout the ages
    This poet has achieved before his death, planted in the hearts of citizens not to abandon the homeland and not to remain silent about your opinion, whatever your position in society
    And the Central Security soldiers tried to stop him, and perhaps they silenced him in the end by killing him, but I do not think that he was a loser because he was expressing his opinion and did not leave anything wrong without objecting to him correctly.
    This brave journalist has influenced others by teaching them that a person's voice is a weapon with which to save his nation, and there are many who have influenced his words and acted upon it.
    I liked this journalist when I read about him because he never hesitated to defend Egypt's freedom, and he believed that the written or spoken word might have an impact in bringing about a revolution and radical change in Egypt.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about The BBC's Sarah Rainsford
    I think she is brave because she fought for journalism in a country that considers being the state of foreign journalists . she has been telling the stories of Russian people not caring about what comes after that . she said that "they want me to go. and I will go. it's sad to leave a country I consider it as a home . a country rising enemies around and now I'm on the list" hearing that makes me feel sad .she could simply do as they said to her . but she insisted on doing the right thing even if that costs her leaving the country she loves.

    I think that Katsyarina is brave because despite being a woman who did not succumb to coercive circumstances and policies, she held many peaceful demonstrations and released a book in two copies talking about the role of Belarusians in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.

    Here I will mention some of the information I collected about her.
    She was born in Minsk and studied there for about two and a half years at Minsk State Linguistics University and then moved to Spain. I learned English there for two years. Then she returned to Belarus, where she worked for the NASA Neva newspaper as a journalist. In 2017, she moved to the Belsat TV channel.

    Katsyarina Andreeva and Igor Elias wrote the book Belarus Donbass in 2020. The book deals with the participation of Belarus in the war in Donbass on the side of the separatists. The Belarusian government considered the book very bad. In 2021, a court ruled that the book was illegal in Belarus for extremism.

    Andreeva was first arrested in 2017 in Ursa. On September 12, 2020, she was arrested by the special police for being a transit woman protesting women in Minsk and imprisoned for three days.

    Katzirina has won many awards, including:
    *Belsat Award "TV Personality of the Year".
    *BAJ Freedom of Expression Competition Prize.
    *In 2020, she received the "Hope of Freedom" award from the Lithuanian Journalists Association.
    *In 2021, Katsyaryna was nominated for the Dariusz Fikus Award by the Press Club of Poland.
    *Ales Lipay Award in Belarus.

    By sentencing her to two years in prison, the Frunzensky District Court tried to prevent her from speaking freely and to silence her freedom.

    Every journalist has an impact on her viewers, Katciarina has made a huge impact on her followers, leading them to peaceful marches demanding justice and urging them to speak up.

    I liked the character of Katciarina very much, as she is an example of a steadfast journalist who works under the influence of all circumstances and does not easily succumb to injustice and oppression.

    The brave journalist I chose to write about is Hadeel Al Yamani. I think she is patient, brave and determined to stay in her homeland. Hadeel Al Yamani was awarded the Courage Award in 2017, and Hadeel Al Yamani was denied the award because of her Yemeni nationality
    There are difficulties she encountered that Yemen suffers from many problems, as it was besieged for an hour and a half by a sniper in the Tabisha'a area in Jabal Habashi to cover the human suffering there. Yemen today lives in poverty and fear, and the health situation is very bad, and Hadeel today lives in the lines of contact, and there are children and women living in this region in very difficult conditions. From here, I derive courage. I admire her because of her love and defense of the homeland and because of her courage.

    Today I will talk about the Dutch journalist "Peter Ardi Fries" who was nicknamed the strong hero and the brave journalist .... His courage was derived from his investigative journalistic investigations related to the criminal world and gangs that were shaking Dutch society at the time, and his biggest challenge was to do what the investigators could not do His motto was (When the investigators surrender..my mission begins with the search). The brave Dutch journalist managed to infiltrate drug dens and criminal gangs, but he was on the death list because of his bravery and dangerous investigative adventures to expose corruption and the corrupt.... Many were warning him not to endanger his life. And to stop his investigative journalism, but he rejected that principle and always said, “If you do not ignore the death threats and submit to them, it is better for you to work in a women’s magazine!!!!! And with every threatening message he received, his determination to continue his work increased, but he paid the price for the word of truth, and the process of shooting him in the head in broad daylight was a punishment for him and to silence his word, which had long been a sword on the necks of the corrupt.

    The brave journalist I chose to write about is Helen Thomas. I think she was brave enough to demand that Israel go back to their homelands in Germany, Poland or the United States.
    It led to statements about Israel. With a statement in which she said about Israel: “These people are occupiers and they should go back to Germany or Poland. She has covered all US presidents beginning with John F. Kennedy, and was the first woman to be a member of the National Press Club.
    And that this courageous journalist impact on others.
    I loved this journalist because she was not afraid of the occupation.

    The brave journalists I have chosen to write about are Katsiaryna Andreyeva and Darya Chultsova.
    I think they are brave because of their stand against the wrongdoers even risking their lives. They didn't step back even after they were arrested.

    Here Katsyaryna made a number of high-profile journalistic investigations and published a documentary book, “Belarusian Donbas,” mainly describing about the role of Belarusians in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. She got arrested by police for arranging peaceful rallies but that could not make her stop. Her bravery and prudence are worth mentioning in the field of journalism and she is still working for maintaining peace.

    The role of Darya Chultsova was actually similar to Katsiaryna but a little broader from my sight. She worked with Katsiaryana in the protests. she was set for punishment for broadcasting a violent dispersal of a rally in the memory of Raman Bandarenka live. Police arrested her along with Katsiaryna breaking the door of their apartment. She still writes in her letter from prison that she is still completely confident about her choice of profession and she was fine there waiting to do her job again.

    By their job, they could at least make people aware of the fact that the Belarusians have an impact on the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and actively make people actively participate in peace proggrammes.

    The other journalists can learn from the two journalists not to stop or step back from his\her profession breaking whatever disruption or barrier comes. Even if they get imprisonment or their life gets at risk they need to stand still in their target and work for peace. And they are the great models of sacrifice for journalists all over the world. Last, of all, I wanna say that I truly admire them because of their bravery, sacrifice, and position against the wrongdoers.

    The brave journalist I want to write about is Alican Uludağ who is a journalist for
    Deutsche Welle and received the Raif Badawi Award for Courageous Journalism in Frankfurt.
    Uludağ is a correspondent who handles cases at the Court of Cassation and Constitutional Court in Turkey. He frequently exposes corruption and investigates the work of law enforcement and security services.
    More than ten preliminary investigations were launched against him, seven times on charges, twice he was convicted but later acquitted. He is not afraid of prison.
    He had always been worried that the police would take him away one night while his family watched him, but he had not yet dealt with such a situation.
    However, his work is very bold and his courage should be known by other journalists as a model.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is a TV correspondent and cameraman from Tolo News.
    I think they are brave because they were threatened by members of the Taliban when they were out reporting on the streets of Kabul, yet they reported this incident on the air. This shows the problems majority of journalists face while reporting any incident. They get harassed, threatened, blackmailed and in extreme cases, murdered. The two people I am writing about encapsulates the life of a journalist as a whole, and are representatives of journalists all over the world. They got threatened by the Taliban, had their camera and other equipment seized. They had a huge impact, as they have shown the life of a journalist reporting in Afghanistan and raised awareness regarding it. I admire them for their bravery and dedication to their job for spreading the truth.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write is Sami Al-Hajj.
    He was a Sudanese cameraman working for Al Jazeera. In 2001 he was arrested and was locked in the US military prison for about 6 years in Cuba for false accusation. He was sent to cover the US war against the Taliban. There he was beaten and interrogated more than 130 times when in prison and protested tirelessly about his treatment there in Cuba. He was released alive after 2008 and now he is the head of Al Jazeera’s Public Liberties and Human Rights Desk. He also wrote a book titled Prisoners.

        Dear @oliviaplatman
        I really liked how he linked journalism to human rights and this inspired me a lot. He was in such a bad position as a journalist who had personally endured such grave human rights abuses and showed the world as he survived from Guantanamo. According to British Human Rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith, Al-Hajj had "endured horrendous cruelty - sexual abuse and religious persecution". Being extensively beaten, “huge scar remains on his face”. Stafford Smith also said that Al-Hajj had witnessed "the Quran being flushed down the toilet by US soldiers in Afghanistan" and "expletives being written on the Muslim holy book". Al-Hajj and several other inmates went on hunger strike in protest of their treatment in Guantanamo, during which Al-Hajj lost over 55 pounds in 438 days. I really commend the courage of journalist Al-Hajj because he gave a strong example in the country and his role was very impressive considering how he was treated as an Al-Qaeda agent instead of a journalist. That's why I appreciate him and I think he deserves that such of contrast.

    The brave journalist or should I say the team of journalists that I chose to write about is ' Khabar Lahariya Newsroom'. This small organization consists of only females of rural areas of Uttar and Madhya Pradesh of India that have started to spread the light of journalism as well as equality of women in those areas. As the culture of India is quite similar to our one, it is a revolutionary step to move forward. Because in rural areas people generally don't see it as good for a girl to stand up. This organization fought against that custom, ignored others' criticism as well as brought the light of journalism to rural areas. Even though it is still in a small stage, I found it brave because it is not easy to deny customs and others' humiliations as most of the people of this subcontinent give a lot of emphasis to customs and culture.

    The brave journalist that I chose to write about is Muhammad Munir, in turn. The journalist writer Abu Al-Maati Al-Sandoubi says, "The press in Egypt lost a man who never hesitated to defend its freedom, and he believed that the written or spoken word might have an impact in bringing about a revolution and radical change in Egypt. ".

    He stressed that Mounir "was dreaming of a free and democratic society," noting that "the current regime in Egypt did not allow him (Mounir) to realize his dream, but rather they did not allow him to live and live."

    And he considered the late Mounir a martyr for press freedom in Egypt, stressing that his sudden death sends a message, the content of which is, "I, as a journalist, have many colleagues in prisons. It is possible that they die as I died, so do not leave them."In his speech to Al-Jazeera Net, Al-Sindoubi stressed that this is a call to rescue dozens of journalists detained in Egyptian prisons who have not committed any crime.

    Meanwhile, Mahmoud Kamel, a member of the Journalists Syndicate Council, published on his Facebook page a testimony about Munir’s struggle, saying, “I remember the scene of Muhammad Munir leaving the union’s door alone on January 28, 2011. I remember the scene of his courage, which I envied while we They are all locked up inside the union building."

    He added that Mounir "came out alone and we remained imprisoned in the union, and now he is out alone and leaves us imprisoned inside the same building, which has become imprisoned like us. This is his habit of tweeting alone without any accounts or fears."

    Mounir concluded, "I lived bravely and died bravely, I lived defending your fellow journalists and I left in a way that carried a message to all of us that the voice of reason does not work all the time."I admire the courage of journalist Mohamed Mounir, because he gave a strong example in the country and his role was very impressive

    The brave journalist I chose to write about is the Lebanese Helen Thomas. I think it is courageous because it demanded that the Israelis leave Palestine and return to Germany or Poland. She also made a statement about the Israeli occupation in 2010, in which she said that these people are occupiers and they must return to Germany or Poland. He told them to get out of Palestine. Before her death, she covered the news of American presidents, from John F. Kennedy to George Bush, and also expressed her opinion on the Israeli occupation of Palestine. The Jewish lobby tried to prevent it, and the American press attacked it, and the agency that was working for it worked for it. This brave journalist influenced others by teaching them that the human voice is a powerful weapon in expelling the occupation from Palestine.
    I loved this journalist when I read about her because she did not fear the occupation in their departure from Palestine.
    And she believed that the written or spoken word might have an impact on the departure of the occupation from Palestine.

    3) She led many campaigns to eradicate the spread and trade of drugs around the world.
    4) It documented how social media is used to spread fake news, harass opponents and manipulate public discourse.


    Who tried to prevent her from doing her job:
    Ressa has been charged with 11 counts of tax evasion, illegal foreign ownership, defamation, and electronic libel.
    But despite these obstacles, she did not give up. Rather, it only increased her determination and determination, because she was confident of herself that she was right. She responded to those who tried to stop her with this phrase, “I am a cautionary tale for journalists who talk a lot and ask a lot. But that does not mean that I will change myself. This is our job, and as long as our constitution is firm, we will continue to exercise these rights.”

    Effect of RISA on others:
    Through her words and speeches, Risa influenced everyone, especially journalists, who drew her courage and freedom of expression.

    There is no doubt that the freedom of the press is the principle that refers to the exercise of the right to express opinion through all available means, this right must be guaranteed by the state. For agencies outside the policy of the state and not to force the journalist to perform any work outside his convictions, and governments have the largest role in protecting the press on their lands, and there were many journalists who were subjected to repression and pressure, so governments must stand as one man to support the press and journalists and defeat the threats that Wasn’t this one of their rights stipulated by the institutions supporting it, such as UNESCO??? Here the Reporters Without Borders Foundation appeared, which sought to advocate journalists to influence governments to show the role of the press, and we find that freedom of expression for journalists and others is a pillar of democracy It must be encouraged and developed and worked to support and elevate it, but what is the role in developing freedom of expression??? Freedom of the press is the indispensable foundation of modern democracy

    The brave journalist I chose to talk about is: journalist Guterres

    I think he is brave because he called for peace with nature, and this is something that deserves appreciation. Guterres also went on to say that the government can put natural capital in economic standards, and also agree not to support agriculture that is harmful to nature, put an appropriate price for carbon, and also reduce the use of fossil fuels to low carbon and friendly solutions for the environment.

    In the same vain, he called for a global coalition to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and prevent the worst effects of climate change

    This journalist is my idol because he helped achieve peace with nature. When I grow up, I would like to become like him a successful journalist who wants to achieve peace. I love the Kaaba and I would like everyone to take care of and preserve it and to be friends with it, and finally Guterres will remain my ideal.

    The journalist I chose to write about is Paula Ogaz
    I think she has great courage to stand up against the massive violations that took place in Peru
    From electoral fraud, trafficking in organs, drugs, corruption, human rights violations, racism and poverty, her courage in revealing these facts is not easy. Defamation, but she was able to prove the facts to come back stronger
    Despite being subjected to many threats, it continues with full force to reveal the facts under its slogan, Fear should not be your liberator Although there are many supportive journalists, there are many opposition parties that sponsor corruption for their personal interests
    Paula's insistence on spreading safety and strength in telling the truth I like it very much. Journalism is the language of the strong, and the distinguished journalist is the one who writes and says what makes journalism a respectable profession, not the one who makes it a commodity that is sold at auction to the one who pays more
    Paola is a journalist who deserves distinction, she is brave in every sense of the word, a woman who fights a corrupt government.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Paola Ugaz.
    I think she is brave because
    Being a correspondent for Spanish newspaper ABC and a host of Lamula.pe’s “Diarios de Pandemia,” Ugaz has covered stories including scandals and abuse in the Catholic church, human and drug trafficking, corruption, human rights, racism, child poverty, education and culture. Ugaz began her career as an investigative journalist for Caretas magazine, exposing election fraud and covering protests during former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori’s second re-election campaign. In 2001, Ugaz became a correspondent for Europa Press . Later she worked for Spanish news agency EFE, and was a founding member of IDL Reporteros, an investigative journalism website. She spent seven years as a correspondent in Peru for Brazilian outlet Terra Magazine. During her time as General Editor of Lamula.pe, Ugaz led a team of journalists to win the Peruvian Human Rights Coordinator’s National Journalism Award. Ugaz has published multiple books, including Punche Perú with photographer Marina García Burgos, and Half Monks, Half Soldiers with journalist Pedro Salinas. The latter exposed physical, psychological and sexual abuse of former members of Sodalitium, a far-right Catholic organization founded in Peru, earning Ugaz and Salinas the 2016 National Journalism Award and the 2016 Human Rights Award from Peru’s National Human Rights Coordinator. When Ugaz began working on a book investigating Sodalitium’s finances, she began receiving escalating lawsuits, media harassment and death threats on social media. In October 2018, Ugaz was sued for defamation by José Antonio Eguren, the Archbishop of Piura and a member of Sodalitium. While the claim was dropped, the attacks have continued – in 2019, Ugaz was named the journalist with the most lawsuits against them in Peru. With additional lawsuits filed in 2020, Ugaz receives near-constant harassment and abuse online. Inspired by her mentor Gustavo Gorriti’s mantra that “fear should never be your editor,” Ugaz persists to keep publishing in the pursuit of more, and better, journalism.The impact that Ugaz has on other people is that she is the shining example of people who in the face of innumerable crisis has the power to move forward just for spreading , promoting and exposing the truth . She is the inspiration for the people who wants to move forward but cannot due to obstacles because she is the role model that no matter how tough the situation never give in and continue the work of spreading the truth . I admire her because even though she is a female , have the highest number of lawsuits against her she did not give up rather she moves with the pursuit of development and spreading the truth . Actually we all can learn from her that stopping and fearing is not a option but drive hard fast through all the obstacles and at the end of the day success himself will reach to us .
    So I admire Paolo Ugaz from the bottom of my heart and I hope that she will continue her pursuit of spreading the truth .

    The courageous, strong journalist I chose to write about is Daria Chholtsova, born in 1997 in Shklo. She graduated from the Faculty of History and Philology at Mahelio State University, and also majored in journalism. She started her journalistic career two years ago.
    At first, she tried herself in reportage, but later she was drawn to working with the camera. After the 2020 elections.
    Daria Chultsova worked with Katserina Andreeva during the weekend protests in Minsk. On November 15, 2020, she was arrested for broadcasting live a violent dispersal of a rally in memory of Raman Bandarinka. They were broadcasting live from the apartment located on the 14th floor of an apartment building, where the hosts invited them. Armed riot police broke down the apartment door and arrested the girls. On November 20 they were charged under Part 1 of Article 342 of the Criminal Code (organizing and preparing actions that flagrantly violate public order).
    On February 18, 2021, the Frunzensky District Court in Minsk sentenced Katsyarina and Daria to two years in prison. In 2021, Daria received the Alice Libai Prize (Belarus) and the Belarus Society of Defenders of Human Rights Award, the Belarus Society of Defenders of Human Rights Award, and her nomination - Journalist of the Year.
    Imprisonment did not make Daria Chultsova doubt the choice of her profession.
    She also stated in her letters that she would have chosen this path if she had known where her journalistic work would lead her.
    She is also optimistic about the future.

    Sarah Rainsford has achieved a special position for her work and sacrifice in journalism which is unparalleled in history. The most precious thing in our life is our motherland but she has sacrificed that for her work . Her sacrifice has earned her the highest respect in international genera.
    Government is responsible for flourishing talent of its citizens but unfortunately in her case it was the government who tried to stop her for her truth seeking movement.
    She was abandoned from Russia , threaten to be killed , stopped by law enforcement agency many times .
    She showed the world that the obstacles of journalism are difficult, but the opportunities to overcome them are endless.
    The reason I admire such a person is because I know that some people are still trying to do good for people in spite of everything, and it makes them look like superheroes

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Nima Elbagir.
    I’ve chosen Nima Elbagir as a brave journalist because of her persistant challenge taking against abuse of women and children. She went to many African countries like Nigeria and Somalia to find all the sorrows behind Africans. Although she mainly focused on the Africa’s alarming incidents, she was able to stop the “Slave Auctions” and terrorist group “Boko Haram” that kidnapped over 250 girls form Nigeria.

    She was awarded “George Polk Award” in the Foreign Television Reporting category as well as the “RTS Award for Scoop of the Year” for her bravery.

    Nima Elbagir was successful to make the other people to acknowledge the pathetic situation in Africa and encouraged others to extend their helping hand.

    A fearless and kind heart is needed to do these risky jobs without having any greed. I admire her for her continuous process and risky journey by which she could make the people aware. In fact, I was encouraged to learn more about her seeing her words which was-
    “We belong wherever we think we belong.”

    Journalism is just bringing out the facts that the powerful tend to hide to mainstream population. Journalism is as simple as just speaking the truth and identifying the lies. Your degrees don't define how excellent of an journalist you can flourish as.
    The brave journalist I would like others to know about is YOU!
    Yes, just you.
    Above are some brilliant stories that may help you choose your destiny.
    The International Women's Media Foundation Courage in Journalism Awards
    These BBC news stories about press freedom
    I think YOU are brave because you read through all the journalists in those two links. I think YOU are brave because you can speak the truth and you want to let others know the truth. Even you expressing your thoughts in this Student Hub is such a brave work! Now you just have to take the first step, which is always the hardest. You have to start, with this courage that you are showing. And in no time we will be reading articles about you.

    • My brave journalist has not started achieving yet. If he just has the courage to take the first step, there will be no limits to what he can achieve. Unfathomable achievements await.
    • I hope that no one does try to stop them in their path of candor and honesty. But we all know that to bring out the truths they have to pay the prices. I believe that whatever hardship they face, they will stand fast to their opinions and keep exploring the truth.
    • My brave journalist will impact a lot of peoples' lives. Because he himself was motivated someday. Maybe by a comment on student hub or maybe reading about other journalists, but what matters most is that he himself was inspired. And he certainly will impact a lot of lives.
    • I admire them because they do have the courage to step up. From telling the truth to journalism, it might seem like a long way. But honestly it's not. My brave journalist will prove that, I am certain of it.

As I read during my reading in this regard that the door for nominations has been opened for the largest and most prestigious international awards in the field of journalism, namely the (Lorenzo Natali) Award with the support of the European Commission, through which journalists from around the world will be honored for their brave coverage of the events and stories experienced by the people of the earth everywhere. Interesting and dangerous, perhaps this generous gesture is due to the journalist's spirit of perseverance, work, jihad and courage in a press looking for a fan, at a time when the exciting dreams of brave journalists were lost under fear and press repression...

Her only fault and crime is her courage!!! What sin did she commit to punish her??? Isn't she entitled to speak under the immunity of the press that protects her and to which she belongs???? She worked in her sensitive work in the government's project in the Nile River dam, a project that no one could dare to speak about and reveal, but she did not hesitate to reveal it with her courage and courage and to deliver her message. A year on charges of money laundering and she remained in prison, but she was released to remove a tumor in her chest and soon she was arrested... She could have chosen another profession and an easy life, but their love for their countries and the truth made them journalists.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Mr. Hamid Mir.
    Beyond his work in Pakistan, Mir is the only journalist in South Asia who covered conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Kashmir, among others. He was the only journalist to have interviewed Osama bin Laden after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. For his war and conflict reporting, he was awarded SAARC Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010 in New Delhi. The GEO TV channel banned him after a speech he delivered in support of press freedom. He was also banned in 2007 by a military dictator — General Pervez Musharraf. Through his speech, he conveyed the message that stop attacking them, stop killing them, otherwise the journalists like Hamid Mir will start naming the people who are responsible for this unjust situation and they will no longer be able to hide behind their invisibility cloaks. He has been denied justice every time, despite facing two deadly murder attempts. He lost his job twice for exposing greed and corruption. He had to face fake cases of murder and kidnapping. He had to face blasphemy charges in courts because he was supporting women’s rights through his writings. Still he didn’t stop and still working for the justice in Pakistan through his blogs and tweets. For this very reason, I greatly admire Mr. Hamid Mir and anticipate that he will continue to work for justice through his voice and words.

Darya Chultsova was detained in jail for broadcasting live a violent dispersal of a rally in memory of Raman Bandarenka on November 15, 2020. Even though she was detained due to the charges of anti state activities, she kept on fighting for the truth afirming in her letters that she would still have picked up this path if she had known where her journalistic work would lead. . In 2021, Darya received Ales Lipay’s award (Belarus) and an award of Belarusian Human Rights Defenders Community, nomination – The Journalist of the Year. She inspired her people and other journalists to stand up for justice by having a demand of immediately launching a prompt, thorough, impartial and independent investigation into Raman Bandarenka’s killing and bring the perpetrators to account in fair trials.

He is the journalist (Mohamed Munir), that journalist who called for his freedom and said, “Life without dignity, death is better.” Israel, he suffered from restrictions and violations during the era of President Hosni Mubarak, and his struggle continued even during the era of Sisi. He died and a picture of his personal account on Facebook of his friend detained in the prisons of the Egyptian government, who always called for his release, and perhaps Munir died to find another Munir who enlightens the path of the press group and stands in the face of an unjust sultan.

    felt proud and sad at the same time for receiving the International Award for Courageous Journalists, which is the Raif Badawi Award. In today's world, who thinks for the values ​​of democracy and freedom, and the sad thing is, is that the name of the award is after a person who is in prison, one of the most bad regimes in respecting human rights,, here he deserves to be rewarded for him. And criticizing the policies of his country, and raising a lot of question marks about the Western Sahara. Perhaps the boldness in his subjects brought him into the cage of confrontation and he was subjected to a prison sentence of up to 20 years. He is not matched by the challenge of anyone else. He explained that courage in journalistic work is the ability to use the mind when the heart is afraid, and he said that when you defend universal ideas and human values, you do not need to be brave. He uses the queen of reason to doubt, ask questions, and apologize for the mistake

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Katsyaryna Andreyeva . I beleive that She is brave for many reasons;

    • Together with journalist Darya Chultsova, she became a suspect in a criminal case on organizing actions that attack public order. They were detained in November while covering a demonstration in memory of an opposition activist who died in Minsk .“Just look Katsiaryna strong, smiling, and saying goodbyes to her loved ones through bars. Lukashenka can’t break us,”( the exiled opposition figure Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya wrote on Twitter. )
    • She was also named journalist of the year (2020)
    • she got the Courage in Journalism Award, a prize by the International Women's Media Foundation.
    • she got the Free Media Award

    I think she affected people by making them aware about the Lukashenka protest and to peaceful marches demanding justice and urging them to speak up.

    I felt something special about this legendary woman who has proved to the world that she is ready to risk it all just to show the truth to everyone and that no one can stop her for doing her job as she should.

    The brave journalist I have decided to write about is Kadaria Ahmed , she is a Nigeria journalist,media entrepreneur, and the chief executive officer of Radio now 95.3FM,she started her career at the BBC in London and has worked in print radio television online and social media platforms.
    I think she is brave because she was described as "one of the most outstanding women journalist in Nigeria who is never afraid to call leaders to account "
    She often takes unpopular positions online and in different fora,debating tricky national issues that most people would rather avoid. Kadaria Ahmed had her bachelor degree from gold Smith university kano, she is a chavening scholar and has an M.A in television from gold Smith's university of London, she moderated the 2011 Nigerians presidential election debate on live TV, she launched a new show called the core on channels TV in July 2017.Nnamdi KANU leader of the indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB) who made news by declaring is "Biafra or death", she has also served as the editor of Next (Nigeria),an award winning publication.
    Through the media people become aware of events and issues occurring around them as a result the make educated decisions therefore the media serves as witnesses of the events happening within our societies and then report them up.
    Journalism is to inform society with the information they need to live their lives ,without journalism the world would be ignorant. It gives current and relevant information and news to the public although it cannot solve the problems of the world on its own,it can contribute in creating awareness and sympathy,helping raise funds and aid and also encourage people to take action for those affected.

    Jessica Aro * A female example of a brave journalist who received an award from Finnish Radio for her courage and strength in confronting political leaders in the Kremlin in Russia, and her impact on public debates beyond Russia's borders... She specializes in extremism and information warfare in Russia, many quotes from Her reports were widely used and used in investigation because of her work, she became the target of a fierce campaign against her because of her writings, but she continued to write and published an investigative book that achieved the highest sales and the book was about the information war in the Kremlin in Finnish and translated into several languages,, She did not surrender to the political leadership In keeping silent about the political mistakes that the state makes, it worked to prove its existence and its information reached the people, it reached many, it fought extremism in Russia, which angered many, and perhaps it is one of the few women who achieved a free press despite many campaigns against it.

    The journalist I chose to write about is Katsyaryna Andreyeva.

    I think she is brave because she knew the fate of those who criticize the government, especially President Alexander Luka Shenko, since Belarus is the most dangerous country in the European continent for journalists.
    All this did not deter her from covering the protests that erupted over the killing of a protester who had died several days ago, and she remained determined to show the whole truth.

    I think that Katsyaryna has achieved a lot, the most important of which is to show the whole truth and highlight the government's suppression of peaceful demonstrations and its attempt to break them up with violence.

    I think this journalist has a strong influence on the rest of the journalists Her arrest may affect the silencing of many journalists, which negatively affects the level of media performance, and could have the opposite effect. There are also many journalists who renounce what happened With this journalist, which makes them adhere more and more to the freedom of the press and expression, which encourages them to continue to perform their work to the fullest, because they believe that the press is not a crime punishable by law.

    I like Katsyaryna Andreyeva a lot because she is a brave journalist who is not afraid of consequences as long as she believes in her journalistic mission to show the whole truth.

    I choose Darya Chultsova
    In the year 1997 in Shklou a valiant soul was born naming Darya Chultsova
    though she ad ever increasing interest in journalism since she was a little girl ,in her university days by working part time for the website "Mogilev.Online" she started to pursue her dream. All the struggles being an journalist started when working with her coworker Katsyaryna Andreeva,she was accused for being an suspect for actions that hampered the public order when working for only the justice of brave activitist Raman Bandarenk shot.dead by plain cloth journalist. After her two years imprisonment with Katsyaryna Andreeva, having several attacks and court trials and being accused also a political prisoner she didn’t stop working fir the rights of people. Last year she got the journalist of the year and this year Darya Chultsova and Katsiaryna Barysevich both got the Ales Lipay (the founder of BelaPAN) Award "Honor of Journalism" .the well known press club polska in the internet media presented year’s Special Dariusz Fikus Prize to the imprisoned Belsatters Darya Chultsova and Katsyaryna Andreyeva for being fearless as determined journalists and proving they prioritize justice even when their personal safety is at risk.
    the EBU tweeted and congratulated as they(Darya Chultsova and Katsyaryna Andreyeva )were awarded with "European Journalist of 2021" for their bravery. "Thank you for risking your lives to do your work, for telling the truth as you find it and for informing the world of your findings."
    @Belsat_Engjournalists Katsiaryna Andreyeva & Darya Chultsova are awarded PRIX EUROPA European Journalist of the Year.


    A German award being given for the press ,Preis für die Freiheit und Zukunft der Medien 2021, Free Media Award is also in her list of achievements.
    "I have everything: youth, a job that I love, prominence and, most importantly, a clear conscience. I want to devote all my energy to the creation of Belarus without political repression. I demand an acquittal for myself, for my colleagues and for hundreds of political prisoners," Andreyeva said at a previous court hearing on Wednesday, according to local media.


    In her way of fighting for justice when she first expressed her will for being a journalist, her family didn’t even approve of the idea, including her loving aunt and mother. But when she proved that she’s a capable journalist and bright women and made her mother proud as she said in an interview to Belsat.


    “My daughter is a huge supporter of truth and does not tolerate injustice. She is holding very well mentally, because her letters show her fighting spirit… She wrote that she wanted me to be proud of her. Which I am, although I sometimes blast her for getting there… I just love her and want her to be well. She is our warrior. Dasha is the winner”

    In her two years of imprisonment she suffered much for the environment prevailing in the cell as the report says:

    ‘Darya and Katsyaryna were first put in the same cell in Akrestsin Street jail, the conditions there were terrible. The cell was designed for four people, but 11 people kept there. The detainees had to sleep close to each other. Bed linen was not provided, they had to sleep on dusty and dirty mattresses. They were not allowed to sit or lie down during the day by guards who also threatened to take away the mattresses. The overcrowded cell was very stuffy, but the “window” was left closed on purpose.”

    AFTER SO MUCH HARDSHIP FACED IN HER PATH SHE NEVER ONCE QUESTIONED HER LIFE CHOICE OF BEING A JOURLIST AND KEEPS WORKING FOR THE TRUTH.
    The story of Darya should be included in book to inspire every little girl to a grown woman as she is the perfect role model for the women who have fear in mind to be expressing themselves to work for what the heart desires, despite thousands of troubles being steadfast in the path of veracity, always being hopeful in the fight of life and fearlessly fighting what comes as a barrier in the way .though being a brave soul and a successful journalist she never was boastful and always thought of her imprisoned colleagues the community.
    I myself love the optimism in her, how she handled such worse things happenings with her only to tread the path of truth, how she always in a high spirit and never thought of deviating from the path of her dream keeping her morale intact when we start doubting ourselves and our work once we face any kind of pain. But she not only made her mother proud but the whole Belsat.
    ISN’T IT WHAT WE ALL DREAM OF?

    I think MARIE COLVIN should be addressed as a brave journalist.

    Marie Catherine Colvin was an American journalist who worked as a foreign affairs correspondent for the British newspaper The Sunday Times from 1985 until her death. She died while covering the Siege of Homs in Syria.

    The siege of Homs was a military confrontation between the Syrian military and the Syrian opposition in the city of Homs, a major rebel stronghold during the Syrian Civil War. In July 2016, lawyers representing Colvin's family filed a civil action against the government of the Syrian Arab Republic claiming they had obtained proof that the Syrian government had directly ordered her assassination, leading to a judge finding the Syrian government guilty of her assassination in early 2019, awarding Colvin's family $302 million in damages.

    The Syrian government was against her. Her mother, Rosemarie Colvin, said aid workers have been trying for days to remove her daughter's body from the war-ravaged country. She added that she believes her daughter was deliberately targeted by Syrian government forces.

    I admire her because she fought alone in Syria instead of knowing that whole Syrian government is against her. Being an foreign reporter she might have the fear that she is alone to fight there but she didn’t had that fear, she was brave enough. Salute to this brave soldier of mankind .Definitely, she was a hero.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Darya Chultsova
    I think she is more than just brave because the two years of imprisonment couldn't hold her back from her passion towards journalism. Rather she showed courage and the will to continue journalism. She said, “2021 is my year. After all, I was born in the year of the bull. And I am very persistent." Her words really inspired me and at the same time amazed me . Even after all that happen to her life due to journalism, she still didn't loose hope. And this amazing spirit has rewarded Darya- Ales Lipay’s award (Belarus) ,award of Belarusian Human Rights Defenders Community and the nomination for 'The Journalist of the Year.' Reading the story of Darya, I find a true and extraordinary example of optimism. She really inspired me to hold my patience for future and be optimistic towards anything. I learnt that no matter what happens, I need to stick to my work and do my duty sincerely. I may face hazards at first, but after reading about Darya, I am sure that I will get my reward if I do my works with dedication.
    Darya is truly an amazing example of bravery, courage and optimism. Her dedication to journalism is also praiseworthy.

    I would like to talk about journalist Daria Choltsovia, why?? I consider her ideal, daring and courageous because she started her life in the press early and worked to spread the voice of truth to people around the world and spread what the authorities are doing in the countries of the world to disperse and disperse the people who advocate the truth and the courage that came out expressing their opinion in the streets. I also considered her brave because she faced difficulties, imprisonment and arrest during She revealed the facts, and she did not regret entering this field Rather, these difficulties that she faced increased her strength to reveal more facts and to reveal the corruption of the authorities
    When the government tried to arrest her and she was broadcasting an operation to disperse people by force from an apartment in an apartment building on the 14th floor, the authorities broke into the door of the apartment, arrested her, put her in prison and sentenced him to two years in prison. Because of her courage, even after the hardships that befell her, she did not regret her entry into the field of journalism. She gave an impetus to other journalists to expose the corruption of the authorities in their countries and encouraged them to reveal the facts.
    Therefore, in the future, I would like to be a judge defending the rights of these journalists and exposing the violations that are practiced against them, whether in prisons, during the trial or the arrest process, because they are part of the pillars of exposing the corrupt authorities and spreading the truth to the world

    There are brave journalists who faced trouble but are obscured by the media, so let our role today in this competition shed light on them so that they can take their right in return for what they have been subjected to in return for the oppression and calm they have been subjected to. A defender of press freedom in Nigeria throughout his decades-long career, despite repeated government harassment he faced. He was arrested twice before deciding to go into hiding in 1995, and in recent years, he was arrested with one of his colleagues in 2017, when police forces raided his newspaper's office on charges of defamation.

    The courageous writer I have decided to expound on is Katsiarina Andreeva.

    I think of her as courageous on the grounds that she has dedicated her time and life to taking care of her work better, and I regard her considerably more on the grounds that she is a lady who has tested society and has confronted challenges in uncovering realities and shielding the right to offer viewpoints.

    She was granted the Order of Friendship in 2006 and was granted TEFI in 2007.

    In 2010, she was recorded in the best 10 of Russian TV moderators.

    In August 2014, Ukraine remembered Andreeva for the authorizations rundown of the situation on the conflict in the east of Ukraine and the Crimea to Russia.

    In October 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Andreeva drew reaction after she upheld the counter veil development.

    Calmly, it was communicated in real time from the roads of Minsk, and when he safeguarded the directly through the disbandment of an assembly to remember the killed dissenter Raman Bandarinka, after the walk, the specialists crushed the entryway of the loft where Katsyrina and her accomplice were stowing away, and this is quite possibly the most striking example.

    Noticeable entertainers who typify viciousness to conceal political outrages, treat the right to articulation as a coordinated wrongdoing and set up methods that blatantly abuse public request. negotiator and I have chosen to seek to be a representative to the United Nations with the goal that I can pass on my voice to every single world pioneer and desire the United Nations to focus closer on safeguarding the right to articulation, not eliminating it to conceal political embarrassments.

    Katsyarina Andreeva and Igor Elias composed the book Belarus Donbass in 2020. The book manages the support of Belarus in the conflict in Donbass on the separatists. The Belarusian government considered the book extremely awful. In 2021, a court decided that the book was illicit in Belarus for radicalism.

    Andreeva was first captured in 2017 in Ursa. On September 12, 2020, she was captured by the unique police for being a travel lady fighting ladies in Minsk and detained for three days.

    So dread your political outrage, don't reach out and do it. Writers have an obligation to spread reality, paying little heed to the truth and force of the party that exposes it, and not to exhibit its force as a police officer or as an expert on reality. Under the title of the oppressor of freedoms, a bombed ruler will just make individuals whose privileges are persecuted, so you as an individual don't keep your mouth shut, the fact of the matter is a right that everybody should know.

    He urges her to ascend and dismiss treachery and agitator against degenerate rulers who need to spread defilement, and she urges ladies to dismiss the viciousness and misuse that comes to pass for them, which is to make a general public that knows the importance of opportunity, as Albert Camus said that the best way to confront a sans non society is to be free to such an extent that your very presence turns into the law of resistance, and I appreciate this valiant writer since she is probably the best illustration of a courageous lady battling to cast a ballot to one side to offer a viewpoint, if imparting the fact of the matter is a wrongdoing, I see that wrongdoing is a circumstance in Two lions who are misleading like the leader of the nation and its manager, Katsiarina urges me to accomplish a more prominent objective that I can finish my obligation as a resident who needs to request common liberties, and I lean toward this is on the grounds that it propagates the memory of somebody who was killed on the grounds that he weeped for his privileges, and if the world will regard everybody, honor the columnists who gave their lives To pass on the expression of truth to this world and make it mindful, and to ascend against foul play, their freedoms are not just something that an adjudicator can choose with his sledge, on the opposite it is a commitment for everybody to regard it. That’s all from my side.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Paola Ugaz.
    I think she is brave because
    Being a correspondent for Spanish newspaper ABC and a host of Lamula.pe’s “Diarios de Pandemia,” Ugaz has covered stories including scandals and abuse in the Catholic church, human and drug trafficking, corruption, human rights, racism, child poverty, education and culture. Ugaz began her career as an investigative journalist for Caretas magazine, exposing election fraud and covering protests during former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori’s second re-election campaign. In 2001, Ugaz became a correspondent for Europa Press . Later she worked for Spanish news agency EFE, and was a founding member of IDL Reporteros, an investigative journalism website. She spent seven years as a correspondent in Peru for Brazilian outlet Terra Magazine. During her time as General Editor of Lamula.pe, Ugaz led a team of journalists to win the Peruvian Human Rights Coordinator’s National Journalism Award. Ugaz has published multiple books, including Punche Perú with photographer Marina García Burgos, and Half Monks, Half Soldiers with journalist Pedro Salinas. The latter exposed physical, psychological and sexual abuse of former members of Sodalitium, a far-right Catholic organization founded in Peru, earning Ugaz and Salinas the 2016 National Journalism Award and the 2016 Human Rights Award from Peru’s National Human Rights Coordinator. When Ugaz began working on a book investigating Sodalitium’s finances, she began receiving escalating lawsuits, media harassment and death threats on social media. In October 2018, Ugaz was sued for defamation by José Antonio Eguren, the Archbishop of Piura and a member of Sodalitium. While the claim was dropped, the attacks have continued – in 2019, Ugaz was named the journalist with the most lawsuits against them in Peru. With additional lawsuits filed in 2020, Ugaz receives near-constant harassment and abuse online. Inspired by her mentor Gustavo Gorriti’s mantra that “fear should never be your editor,” Ugaz persists to keep publishing in the pursuit of more, and better, journalism.The impact that Ugaz has on other people is that she is the shining example of people who in the face of innumerable crisis has the power to move forward just for spreading , promoting and exposing the truth . She is the inspiration for the people who wants to move forward but cannot due to obstacles because she is the role model that no matter how tough the situation never give in and continue the work of spreading the truth . I admire her because even though she is a female , have the highest number of lawsuits against her she did not give up rather she moves with the pursuit of development and spreading the truth . Actually we all can learn from her that stopping and fearing is not a option but drive hard fast through all the obstacles and at the end of the day success himself will reach to us .
    So I admire Paolo Ugaz from the bottom of my heart and I hope that she will continue her pursuit of spreading the truth .

    The brave journalist that I will talk about Hassan Asleh is an Arab journalist living in Palestine. Terrible events happened to him, but he was brave in the face of these fears and overcame them with strength, determination and will. Did you know that in the war he was on the road and next to him was the bombing? Spreading news in wars, and when my sister succeeded in directing me, he filmed a video the moment the result came out, and he always sent the right news. Try to prevent rumors and false bad news. His impact on the people was to know the true news, to teach people courage and strength, and to express an opinion of him. I admire him because he is brave and has no fears or fake news and tries to prevent rumors and bad fake news. I enjoyed talking about him because I discovered his strength, will, and determination.

    The courageous journalist that I chose to write about is (Marie Colvin), whose full name is (Marie Catherine Colvin), born in New York in 1956, and graduated from YALE University in the United States. 1980. Worked for the International Press Association. In 2001, Colvin lost the sight in her left eye after a bomb exploded near her in Sir Lelanca and then her life in Syria. The details of her life mimic the legendary characters. Her career began with (United Press Interna Sheo Naal) and then (The Sunday Times) She appeared during the Lebanese civil war to transport goods there in the early eighties in 1999. She conveyed the tragedies of East Timor with its war for independence from Indonesia, which made her an icon in the civil war in Sri Lanka in 2001 . She won the Courage in Journalism Award, but courage cost her her eye, so she wore a patch for the rest of her life and presented one of her last press reports in February 2012 before she was killed in Homs. I loved her courage, her insistence on revealing the facts and the truth, and her sacrifice for the sake of the profession that she loved and which cost her her life later.. She is a model for a freelance journalist.

    the brave journalist I'd like to write about is Paola Ugaz
    . I chose her because of her courage. She has dedicated her career to investigating injustice and human rights violations around the world. Ugaz, now a correspondent for the Spanish ABC newspaper and presenter of the "Diarios de Pandemia" Lamula. pe has been accused of scandals and abuses in the Catholic Church, human trafficking, corruption, human rights, racism, child poverty, education, and culture. Ugaz began her career as an investigative reporter for Caretas magazine, exposing election fraud and covering protests during the second re-election campaign of former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori. After that, she became a correspondent for Europa Press, where she learned to tell the world what was happening in her country. Ugaz later worked for Spanish news agency EFE and was one of the founders of IDL Reporter, an investigative journalism website. She spent seven years as a correspondent in Peru for the Brazilian outlet Terra Magazine. During her time as General Editor of Lamula.pe, Ugaz led a team of journalists to win the Peruvian Human Rights Coordinator`s National Journalism Award. Ugaz has published multiple books, including Punch Perú with photographer Marina García Burgos, and Half Monks, Half Soldiers with journalist Pedro Salinas. The latter exposed the physical, psychological, and sexual abuse of former members of Sodalitium, a far-right Catholic organization founded in Peru, earning Ugaz and Salinas the 2016 National Journalism Award and the 2016 Human Rights Award from Peru`s National Human Rights Coordinator. When Ugaz began working on a book investigating Sodalitium`s finances, she began receiving escalating lawsuits, media harassment, and death threats on social media. In October 2018, Ugaz was sued for defamation by José Antonio Eguren, the Archbishop of Piura and a member of Sodalitium. While the claim was dropped, the attacks have continued – in 2019, Ugaz was named the journalist with the most lawsuits against them in Peru. With additional lawsuits filed in 2020, Ugaz receives near-constant harassment and abuse online. Inspired by her mentor Gustavo Gorriti`s mantra that “fear should never be your editor,” Ugaz persists to keep publishing in the pursuit of more, and better, journalism.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about Maria Ressa has been a journalist for nearly 35 years, and in 2012 Maria co-founded Rappler, the single best digital news site leading the fight for press freedom in the Philippines. Maria suffered constant political harassment and arrests by the Duterte government, and was forced to pay ten times bail to remain free.
    11 charges have been brought against Rappler and Resa related to tax evasion, illegal foreign ownership, defamation, and electronic libel — all of which have been filed since Duterte came to power in 2016.With more lawsuits brought by the Duterte government, more international recognition for her work, and a growing list of international awards, the Filipino-American journalist and co-founder of news platform Rappler has become a global symbol of resistance to state interference in the media.Ressa spent one day in detention on February 13, 2019 in connection with an electronic defamation complaint filed by a businessman over an article published by Rappler in 2012. The allegedly defamatory article was published when the bill criminalizing online defamation had not yet been signed into law. Furthermore, Risa did not write the article, but was accused of being the CEO and Editor-in-Chief of Rappler.
    Risa has been a beacon of democracy in Asia, but the dominance of tyranny and oppression in this country confirms the need to deal seriously with the attack on the independent press, which is a wake-up call to the rest of the world and the freedom of the press in it.
    Maria Ressa is truly a force to be reckoned with. I worked as a journalist for more than three decades. The work has taken her to many war zones and release rooms across Southeast Asia. I have reported on the spread of terrorism in Asia, drug crime in the Philippines, the weaponization of social media - at great personal risk.

    Her response to the dangers, which included state-backed attacks, inspires her colleagues with courage: “We are journalists, and we will not be afraid. We will turn on the light. We will keep pace. “
    Therefore, she is an icon of courage for me and my role model. So when I grow up, I want to become a journalist who is not afraid of risks. I convey the truth, no matter what it costs me, and I stand against corruption.

    What is bravery? Doing something that other fears to step on, going somewhere that some others feel daunted, relentlessly getting on to work yet a lot of barriars, all these I find to be similar to bravery. And if I am asked to mention a role model for the adjective "brave" , without any second thought the name " Zehra Dogan" would come out of my mouth.

    Brave initiator: Zehra Dogan initiated Turkey's first women's news agency "JINHA" , though it was closed by the government later on.

    Brave explorer: Zehra Dogan went to such places where some male reporters even dare not go, thus the news of those places would remain hidden. But she brought those to light.
    Such an example is, she is the first journalist to talk to the Yezidi women liberated from ISIS slavery. Zehra's coverage of the Yezidi women earned her "Metin Goktepe Award" , one of the most prestigious awards for journalism in Turkey.

    Commitment: Besides reports, Zehra also published her works through her own paintings. One brave story of her painting is while being inside the prison once, despite the rufusal of prison administration to supply painting materials, she kept on painting. Imagine how much dedicated a journalist can be to prepare her own paint from drinks, foods and even from her menstrual blood. She prepared brush from the feathers of birds that fell into the prison.

    The brave journalist showed that neither journalism nor art can be oppressed by imprisonment. While imprisoned, she won the freethinker prize from the Swiss Freethinker Association. Her works are exhibited in many European countries, and the brave journalist's voice is heard all over the world.

    The valiant columnist I have decided to expound on is Paola Ugaz.

    I think she is valiant in light of the fact that

    Being a reporter for Spanish paper ABC and a large group of Lamula.pe's "Diarios de Pandemia," Ugaz has covered stories remembering embarrassments and maltreatment for the Catholic church, human and medication dealing, debasement, common freedoms, prejudice, youngster destitution, schooling and culture. Ugaz started her profession as an analytical columnist for Caretas magazine, uncovering political race misrepresentation and covering fights during previous Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori's second re-appointment crusade. In 2001, Ugaz turned into a journalist for Europa Press . Later she worked for Spanish news office EFE, and was an establishing individual from IDL Reporteros, an analytical news coverage site. She went through seven years as a journalist in Peru for Brazilian outlet Terra Magazine. During her time as General Editor of Lamulape, Ugaz drove a group of columnists to win the Peruvian Human Rights Coordinator's National Journalism Award. Ugaz has distributed different books, incorporating Punche Perú with picture taker Marina García Burgos, and Half Monks, Half Soldiers with writer Pedro Salinas. The last option uncovered physical, mental and sexual maltreatment of previous individuals from Sodalitium, an extreme right Catholic association established in Peru, acquiring Ugaz and Salinas the 2016 National Journalism Award and the 2016 Human Rights Award from Peru's National Human Rights Coordinator. At the point when Ugaz started dealing with a book exploring Sodalitium's accounts, she started getting raising claims, media badgering and passing dangers via web-based media. In October 2018, Ugaz was sued for criticism by José Antonio Eguren, the Archbishop of Piura and an individual from Sodalitium. While the case was dropped, the assaults have proceeded – in 2019, Ugaz was named the columnist with the most claims against them in Peru. With extra claims documented in 2020, Ugaz gets close consistent provocation and misuse on the web. Roused by her coach Gustavo Gorriti's mantra that "dread ought to never be your supervisor, "Ugaz perseveres to continue to distribute chasing more, and better, journalism. The sway that Ugaz has on others is that she is the brilliant illustration of individuals who even with countless emergency has the ability to push ahead only for spreading, advancing and uncovering reality. She is the motivation for individuals who needs to push ahead yet can't because of impediments since she is the good example that regardless of how extreme the circumstance never yield and proceed with crafted by spreading reality. I appreciate her in light of the fact that despite the fact that she is a female, have the biggest number of claims against her she didn't surrender rather she moves with the quest for improvement and spreading reality. As a matter of fact we as a whole can gain from her that halting and dreading isn't a choice however pass hard quick through every one of the impediments and by the day's end achievement himself will reach to us.

    So I appreciate Paolo Ugaz with the utmost sincerity and I trust that she will proceed with her quest for spreading reality.

    Guevara Ishaq Ahmed Al-Budairi, a press reporter working with the Qatari satellite channel Al_Jazira from the West Bank. The heart of Hadath and the danger surrounding it, however, tells us the news directly from the site.
    On 6/6/2021, the Arab media denounced the scene of the Israeli forces’ attacks in Jerusalem on Guevara Al-Budairi, and she was removed from Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood for 15 days in Jerusalem, and she was insulted and humiliated.
    With my great respect for all journalists from all over the world, we will not find the strength, determination and determination that the Palestinians have in anyone else in the same quantity and amount.

    The brave journalist I have chosen to write about is Katasyaryna Andreyeva who covered peaceful rallies and broadcasted a violent dispersal of a gathering to commemorate the murdered protester Raman Bandarinka. She was arrested on November 15, when armed anti-riot police smashed the door of the apartment she was hiding in, and she was charged with organizing and preparing measures that flagrantly violate public order, according to the Criminal Code, Article 342, part. 1 She was sentenced to two years in prison once in 2017 and two years in 2020.
    I think she is brave because she defended the people's right to express their opinion, although she was imprisoned once in 2017, but she continued to defend that right and was imprisoned in 2020.
