Soraya Saharddi Nelson,
NPR foreign correspondent
In 2006, Soraya Saharddi Nelson opened the NPR Kabul Bureau, after spending more than two decades as a newspaper reporter. During the following three and a half years, Nelson gave listeners an in-depth sense of life inside Afghanistan, from the increase in suicides among women in a tribal society that sees them as second class citizens, to the growing interference of Iran and Pakistan in Afghan affairs and the impact of Western policies in the region. For her coverage of Afghanistan, she won a Peabody award, Overseas Press Club award and Gracie in 2010.
