As thousands of our martyrs, Arin Joudi scarified her life to protect her homeland, and embroidered her name in golden letters in the page of history.
Comrade Arin was born in 1996 in Terbe Spi in Rojava and grew up on the conception of struggling and resistance derived from the history of resistance of Rojava people. With a high moral, Arin joint to the rank of our units in 2013.

After a period of time, Arin joined to the free media, and participated alongside her two martyred comrades Mazlom and Kadar I the coverage of the battles which was waged out by our units to repel the attacks of the mercenaries against Rojava. So she worked in the free media for a period of time.
With her camera and pen, Arin showed the truth of YPG and YPJ resistance against the attacks of the mercenaries and played a major role in showing the reality of the resistance of YPG for the public opinion.

She took part in these battles as a fighter and journalist within our units. She was very brave in the battles against ISIS and when she was running out of her ammunition, she was carrying her camera and covering the battles.
