Michelle Nouri was born in Prague and raised in Baghdad where she and her family lived through the Iraq-Iran conflict. After being abandoned by her father, she briefly returned to Prague, and at age eighteen Michelle moved to Italy seeking a better life. After learning Italian, Michelle built a successful career in the Italian media, working in both television and print, covering the lives and issues of immigrants in Italy.
I have been a Journalist, Television Presenter, and a Guest Speaker on Television.
Being able to travel and meet interesting people from diverse cultures and backgrounds. My book The Girl from Baghdad has also been one of the highlights in my career.
My works have been published in Italy, Australia, Turkey, Macedonia, Poland and Serbia.
I’m generally interested in peoples life stories. I think that every person has a story to tell; it doesn’t matter where this person has lived or been raised. I have had three lives: the first one in Baghdad, the second one in Prague, the third one on Italy, and I’m probably going for my fourth one… I don’t know where yet… and that’s very exciting for me.
