BBC Correspondent Nawal Al-Maghafi shares her experiences reporting on the Middle East.
Nawal's impressive journalism career started when she travelled back home to Yemen after completing a degree in Economics with Politics at the University of Nottingham. Back in Yemen, she began to make her own videos about the Arab Spring.
Her reports on the revolution were noticed by the BBC and she has continued to report on the ongoing conflict in Yemen since for BBC News at Ten, BBC Our World and BBC Arabic. In December 2016, Nawal's coverage led to the DEC Yemen appeal raising over £25 million for those affected in the first two weeks of her coverage.
During the investigation of the deadliest bomb attack of the conflict by the Saudi-led coalition, Nawal revealed the use of "double tap attacks", which are against international humanitarian law, and was the only journalist to speak to the main commanders on both sides.
As well as her reports on Yemen's war and the country's cholera outbreak, the 27-year-old journalist has investigated high-tech mass surveillance technology and worked undercover to expose organ trafficking in Egypt.
