Rula Jebreal

Palestine (b.1973)

Palestinian-born Rula Jebreal, one of the most important broadcasters and interviewers in Italy, also happens to be a media darling.

Jebreal has become something of a phenomenon in Italy, where she is wildly popular. She is the author of several books, one of which, Miral, is being made into a movie by acclaimed director Julian Schnabel.

Jebreal, an outspoken figure on foreign affairs and immigration, is well-known for her tough interviewing style. And while Italy has treated her well, Jebreal, continues to yearn for her family in the occupied territories.
