Had such a great time celebrating all the female-led businesses at the new #PalisadesVillage
. Thanks for having me ❤️
In 2011 I had the most amazing opportunity to join in the celebration of the launch of the City of Joy in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This place and the incredible women there inspired me beyond. Now there is a Netflix film - CITY OF JOY - sharing the story of this remarkable place and the heroes behind it. If you need a little dose of hope right now (and need to add to your Netflix queue) I highly recommend it!
Spent an amazing week in South Africa and Rwanda with @ctaop
, seeing the incredible work our program partners are doing on the ground there. We laughed, we cried, we danced, and I’m even more excited now about the future these young people are bringing to Africa!
If I didn’t already know the end of the HIV/AIDS crisis lies in the hands of the youth, these two proved it to me today. #AIDS2018
“For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” Happy 100th birthday, you amazing man. #NelsonMandelaDay
Earlier today, I had the chance to sit down with ten female leaders from all across Africa who are gathered in Johannesburg as part of the @obamafoundation
Leaders: Africa program. I heard from a young woman who is providing educational opportunities to girls in rural Uganda and another leader working on HIV/AIDS prevention in Sierra Leone. I was so impressed by their perseverance, optimism, and commitment to making a positive impact. I left inspired by these young leaders who are learning from one another, working together, and building a network to continue their important work across the continent.
