The documentation of breast ironing in Cameroon. Breast ironing is an attempt to flatten pubescent girls’ breasts with hot tools. This is carried out by female family members in the hope of limiting young women's sexuality so that they are more likely to fulfil their education. Heba recently received a diploma in photojournalism from Hochschule Hanover University in Germany. In 2016, Heba received a diploma from the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Denmark.
