Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
In 2016, film producer and director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy went down in history as the only person of Pakistani descent to win two Academy Awards. (She was also the only woman of color to win that year.)

Her incredible documentary about honor killing, called A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness, was in fact so poignant that the Pakistani prime minister himself promised to change the law on honor killing after watching the film. Obaid-Chinoy pointed this out when she accepted the Oscar, saying, "That is the power of film." Wow.
