A Story in Lipstick
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Working with refugees and sharing their stories thru writing
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Happiness doesn't have to be perfect. I am happiest working long days with refugees but at the end of those days, I am often hot, sweaty, tired and desperate for a bubble bath. There are no bubble baths in third world refugee settings so I settle for waiting till I get home. That's real happiness - finding it in the moment and accepting what you have.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. The many staff at the International Rescue Committee who devote every waking hour to saving refugees
