Nancy Porsia, a young freelance journalist, went to Libya for the first time in 2011, four days after Gaddafi's death. Having moved to the country permanently, she was, for quite some time, the only international journalist to talk about the troubled democratization process, and became one of the leading experts on the country. Due to her investigation into the Libyan Coast Guard’s involvement in human trafficking, she was forced to leave the country in 2017, while pregnant with her half-Libyan child. After three years, she still is not allowed to safely enter the country, but doesn't give up on staying connected to it.
