Alejandro, from Al Jisr Podcast, talks with Reem, a media professional from Yemen, about her road to working in media, including her upbringing, travels, and every difficulty she had to encounter in order to develop news in her home country of Yemen. Reem, a mother of three, has been working in media for over 10 years. In these years she had to struggle with barriers due to her gender, her worldliness, but most importantly, having to develop news in a place where its current political climate makes it difficult to report without putting her in harm’s way.
