The Executive Director will receive the Reporters without Borders’ award at a ceremony to be held on May 3 in Stockholm, Sweden. Lina Chawaf said about her winning this year’s award that this means a lot to her as the prize will boost her in keeping up her work, which she sees as the duty of everyone who survived (in Syria) to continue his work to convey the voice of Syrian youth, which has been neglected and obscured.
