Azad Cudi is an Iranian-born British national from a Kurdish background. He grew up in eastern Kurdistan, where he was conscripted into the Iranian army and escaped to the UK aged just nineteen. In 2011, Azad was working for a television station in Stockholm when the Syrian civil war broke out and the Kurds established their autonomous enclave of Rojava. Azad's response was to fly out to Syria and work as a social worker, but as the civil war expanded he became a fighter in the volunteer army, the YPG, part of the anti-ISIS coalition of more than sixty countries. He now lives in the UK.
