Each year the magazine, "Arabian Woman" names 30 Awesome Women.

This year Hala is named as a "Hero":

"CNN reporter and anchor Hala Gorani is not fearless – but that hasn’t stopped her from risking her life to bring news to the public. Early this year, she presented ‘The Middle East Challenge’, a special hour-long programme that took an insightful and thought-provoking look into the problems and promise facing the Middle East.

As one of CNN’s most experienced international journalists, she has reported from every country in the Middle East, including KSA, Iraq, Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories. She was instrumental in CNN International’s coverage of the Israel-Hezbollah conflict in 2006, for which CNN won an Edward R Murrow Award. In 2005, she was one of the first television reporters on the ground in Amman, Jordan, after al Qaeda suicide bombers attacked two hotels. Earlier that year, she also covered the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza."
