Razan Shalab al-Sham

Razan Shalab Al ShamAs the college-educated daughter of a wealthy Syrian family, Razan Shalab al-Sham once enjoyed a life of luxury and privilege—but that was before the revolution. Socialite turned activist, Razan is now at the center of a vast network of humanitarians, smugglers, and FSA soldiers. Rebel commanders refer to her as the “Butterfly of the Revolution”—an apt moniker for one so profoundly transformed.
