Although Baraq Ali Ubaid is young, she has suffered a lot of trauma and hardship in her life. Her father was a truck driver that was killed by terrorists. Four months later, the grandfather caring for her was killed.

Sadly, her father’s family and her mother had an intense court battle for custody of Baraq and her five sisters. Her mother lost the case due to insufficient medical reports saying she had a mental disorder. However, Baraq’s mother did not give up. After a tough fight in court, her mother regained custody of Baraq and her sisters.
