Umut Duygu Uzunel
Umut Duygu Ozunel was born in Turkey, and as a renowned eye surgeon, she has known moments of desperation. In Mali, she had to decide to save a child’s life, alone and unsupported. When her husband is arrested, she is forced to flee Turkey in her well-worn orthopedic shoes. Again alone, she summons up the courage to decide to save her own life.
