I always look at her with much fascination. She's smart and funny and quite a wonderful person. She was in the country recently to attend a conference and just before she flew back to Paris, we had lunch with her.
She lives an incredible life. Imagine this: she graduated with honors (elem to college), went to HK U and Brown University (Ivy League baby!) for her two masters' degree, worked in the UN and in an NGO in Africa, went to an adventure in Paris and now works for the UN again. And this is just a very tiny part of the extraordinary life she's living.
Above all that, she's an amazingly great friend.
I was so happy to see her again after a long time. We had pizza, pasta, and gelato in between stories and laughter. She flew back to Paris that day and we all knew we were going to miss her again, everyday.
