Pakistan is one of the most dangerous country for journalists, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. Despite her limited knowledge of Urdu, Pulitzer Center grantee and video journalist Hilke Schellmann ventured out into an unfamiliar part of Karachi, Pakistan's largest city, with a driver who didn't speak English. Here Schellmann shares her story, the lessons she learned from her reporting experience in Pakistan and a word of advice for foreign correspondents: "Be ultra prepared."
