Fantastic Mr. Clooney! Mr. Nick Clooney

I have wanted to be a journalist (and soccer maven) since I was a little girl.

Trying to look cool

I wanted to be as smart as Christiane Amanpour, as sassy and curious as Ann Curry and (when I was a little older) as perspicacious as Nick Clooney.

A girl can still dream. Those people are my anchors and journalism mentors.

I have wanted to do a post about Nick Clooney for a long time.

Yes, he is the father of some famous actor we may have seen on the big and small screens and we’ve drank his Tequila like there was no tomorrow ( I sure did) and still, didn’t have the worst hangover.

Nicholas Clooney (the same given name as my father) is so fascinating. He was a well-known anchorman and television host for so many years.

He was a true leader in his field. But, he displays the definition of what it means to be a true leader with his actions.

He protested for the Sudanese with pride, even though he got arrested along with his son.

That shows you the man he is. Someone not afraid to fight the good fight. This is something that his son will probably pass down to his children.

In my eyes, this is the most beautiful legacy a man could leave to his descendants.

While watching David Letterman’s show last night on Netflix, I was so happy and touched by the generosity of all the Clooneys for sponsoring a very courageous Yazidi man named Hazim Avdal (and he is a good driver).

There is goodness around us. We just need to open our eyes and our hearts.

If you have the chance to watch it on Netflix, please do!

Mr. Clooney. Thank you for being one of my inspirations and in a way, one of my mentors.

I salute you.

Soeurs, sisters, mothers and warriors

La première fois que j’ai entendu parler de Nadia était durant le mois de février 2016. Je ne pouvais pas comprendre dans ma tête comment un être humain aurait pu vivre toutes ces atrocités. Et le pire est qu’elle n’est pas la seule. Des milliers de femmes yazidis ont vécu ou vivre le même calvaire que notre chère Nadia. C’est atroce, frustrant et déconcertant. C’était un moment où ces paroles raisonnaient dans mon esprit ” I can’t believe the news today, I can’t close my eyes and make it go away”.

Dans un autre post, je parlerai plus en profondeur de son histoire qui m’a bouleversement touchée. Mais si vous avez la chance de lire cet article dans The Economist (je l’ai lu deux fois car la première fois, je pleurais sans arrêt), vous serez touché et ému je vous le promets.

À deux, nous sommes encore plus forts

Team work tout le monde ensemble

Être là l’une pour l’autre no matter what

Je vais écrire cette phrase en anglais.

International Women Day should always be everyday sisterhood day.

As a woman, I want to stand up no matter with my mom, with my cousins, with my girlfriends and with every women all around the world.

We need to be there for each other even when sometime it’s hard. Sisterhood for life.
