At the 2017 Miss Universe pageant, Miss Iraq Sarah Idan posted a photo with Miss Israel on social media as an expression of friendship and peace. Her act of goodwill was immediately met with death threats, forcing Sarah and her family to flee their home country. She had grown up hearing terrible things about Israel and its people, but when she visited the Jewish state, her eyes were opened to the truth. Now, Sarah works to connect people of different faiths despite borders and age-old conflicts.
