Rez Gardi was Young New Zealander of the Year in 2017. She was born in a UN refugee camp with parents who had fled from their homeland of Kurdistan. She's now NZ's first Kurdish lawyer, advocating for refugees and human rights. She's currently undertaking a Master of Law at Harvard Law School.
She joins Jesse to talk about a new film, Girls of the Sun, which pays tribute to largely unacknowledged Kurdish warrior women who've played a huge role in the fight against ISIS.
