Lala (30) is an Azeri journalist currently working in Georgia. She was lucky enough to be told at home that the conflict with Armenia is a political matter. She is now covering the region with her experimental media projects, focusing on Azeri ethnic minorities.
While she feels the pressure of the lack of personal safety and freedom in Azerbaijan, Lala has chosen not to go very far so that she can continue to tell the story of the place and its people.
