A Yazidi journalist, writer, and human rights activist from Germany, Duzen Tikal received an Education Award from the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences in honor of her role in solving social problems.

Tikal is a human rights activist, journalist, and social media blogger, as well as the founder of Hawar Heleb and German Dream.

During the award ceremony, Federal Agriculture Minister Jem Ozdemir of the Green Party said on Friday in a video message shown at the award ceremony: "We still need to encourage democracy much more and inspire people to truly participate in democracy.

Duzen Tikal, a 43-year-old Yazidi by birth, also worked as a war correspondent and in her journalistic work focused on the war in Syria and Iraq. "There is nothing more terrible than a war that no one thinks about, and which has become the norm for us, every war is horror, pain, suffering and death," says Duzen.

After receiving this award, Tikal stated: "I am very happy to receive this award because it was a tribute to the work, I have done protecting the interests of my Yezidi people. This award will also be a sign of pride for me."

At the award ceremony, Tikal opened a lecture hall at Ansbach University in Bavaria, which will bear her name throughout the year.

The President of the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences, Muller-Furstein, stated: "This lecture hall will remind us every day how important it is to take a firm stand against extremism and violence and advocate for tolerance and education."

Ansbach University of Applied Sciences has been awarding the Teacher's Prize in Variable Subjects annually since 2018. The previous winners were Hannes Janek, Lena Mayer Landruth and Philipp Lamm.
