Sarah Idan was born and raised in Baghdad. In 2017, she was crowned Miss Iraq and took part in the Miss Universe Pageant. After taking a selfie with Miss Israel and posting the picture on social media, Idan faced an onslaught of hate, and made a choice that would set her on a life changing trajectory. Her family was forced to flee Iraq, and she decided to speak more loudly and forcefully than ever before. Defying her government, she visited Israel and most recently, flew to Geneva, Switzerland to receive the Ambassador for Peace Award, where she offered a powerful speech to the UN Human Watch Rights Council, criticizing Arab media bias against Israel and antisemitism taught in Muslim communities. Idan continues to engage in work which she hopes will serve as a bridge to bring both understanding and reconciliation to the world.
