Este livro n o estava inicialmente nos meus planos para o m s Mas aquando numa das muitas visitas biblioteca vi este livro e achei que seria uma boa leitura adequado ao tema de viagens. Novamente um livro de n o fic o onde a actriz Angelina Jolie conta um pouco das suas viagens humanit rias Serra Leoa, Tanz nia, ao Paquist o, ao Cambodja e ao Equador nos anos de 2001 e 2002. Os relatos aqui apresentados s o duros As hist rias de vida impressionantes, embora n o explorasse muito este assunto Conta como foi conhecer refugiados de lugares muito diferentes, mas com um objectivo em comum uma vida melhor, sem guerras, nem fome Conta tamb m um pouco daquilo que sente ao falar com estas pessoas e da pessoa que se tornou depois destas experi ncias Reconhecer e dar valor ao que se tem e ajudar o outro tornou se num Certainly not what you would expect from a Hollywood star This is the story of Angelina Jolie, the Goodwill Ambassador for the UN The story is told through journals that she wrote during visits that she took in 2001 and 2002 to Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Cambodia, Pakistan, and Ecuador. As she says right off the bat, she s not a writer The journals are short thoughts and memories that she was capturing each day They are her thoughts as she experienced the interaction and stories of refugees all over the world Though I would have preferred detailed accounts of what is going on, there are definitely short stories of what these people have suffered and are suffering. Because of the subject matter, and the fact that there s not a lot else out there on this subject trust me, I ve been actively looking for books o Kinderen Hier Pakken Je Hand En Lopen Lachend En Zingend Met Je Mee Ze Hebben Niets Hoe Vertel Je Dat Ze Hun Leven Weer Moeten Opbouwen Wanneer Ze Er Zeker Van Zijn Dat De Rebellen Het Toch Weer Zullen Verwoesten In Speelde Angelina Jolie De Hoofdrol In De Film Lara Croft Tomb Raider Enkele Sc Nes Werden Opgenomen In Het Door Landmijnen Bezaaide Cambodja, En Angelina Werd Diep Getroffen Door Het Leed In Dit Land Ze Besloot Haar Bekendheid In Te Zetten En Werd Ambassadrice Voor [ Pdf Angelina Jolie's: Notes from My Travels: Visits with Refugees in Africa, Cambodia, Pakistan and Ecuador ç polygamy PDF ] by Angelina Jolie ô De UNHCR Voor Deze Organisatie Reisde Zij Naar Onder Meer Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Pakistan, Cambodja En Ecuador, Om Vluchtelingen Te Helpen Die Het Slachtoffer Zijn Geworden Van Oorlog En GeweldIn Mijn Reizen Doet Angelina Op Indrukwekkende Wijze Verslag Van Deze Bezoeken, Die Getuigen Van Veel Compassie En Warmte Te Midden Van Bittere Armoede Zij Geeft Ons Een Openhartig Kijkje In De Levens Van Moedige En Inspirerende Mensen Voor Wie Overleven Een Dagelijkse Bezigheid Is Makes you appreciate her humanitarian work You will really get to know the other side of AJ, away from the glamor in hollywood, her compassion towards these people, her genuine motives in helping in whatever way she can to tell the world that there are millions out there in the other side of the planet who lives in misery It makes you stop whatever you re doing and just say, I m a lucky bitch compared to these people, so what can I do now to help even just on my own little way Favorite quotes I think we all want justice and equality We all want a chance for a life with meaning All of us would like to believe that if we were in a bad situation someone would help us Someone once said, You can learn about someone in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. This book should be titled The education and awakening of Angelina Jolie since the most interesting thing is the way she grows up between the beginning and the end Because she isn t a writer, the shock and horror she experienced in Africa comes through in a visceral way She s not trying to make us feel what she feels when she looks around at acres of dying refugees, she s just trying to describe it to herself in some way that makes sense I m impressed by the fact that she requested her first humanitarian assignment to Africa and I wish she d had the presence of mind and introspectiveness to write about what drove her to that decision It s all the impressive that she would take another assignment after Africa because that kind of human suffering is way beyond one person s ability to make a difference It s a rare person that dives in anyway and says that they ll do what they can even if ✓ Angelina Jolie's: Notes from My Travels: Visits with Refugees in Africa, Cambodia, Pakistan and Ecuador ↠´ I loved this book because I admire Angelina Jolie for what she s doing for the humanity Of course, it doesn t hurt that I LOVE her as well Anyway, it was interesting to know what was going on in her position since I ve always wanted to be involved with refugee agency most of my fam are refugees from Cambodia. Being a HUGE Angelina Jolie fan, I found this book to love her even She just proves to the world that she is seriously one of the most active and loving actresses out there Her daily struggles helping refugees opened my eyes and I think everyone should read this book Kudos
Disclaimer I like Angelina Jolie I think that she s an amazing woman, a great actress and classier than certain people who feel the need to name drop her in every other interview That s partly why I read this and the other was that it gave me a significant push into Asia that I needed for my challenge. Anyway, before Brangelina and all the kids Angelina Jolie was recruited as a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Refugees and as part of her duties she went travelling around the world to different areas to talk to displaced people This book is her diaries during those trips and her thoughts and experiences Almost from the start you warm to her, even if you didn t like her The book is written such as we would write chronicling little things and snippets of conversation I am proud to say I like Angelina Jolie when she was going through her weird stage and some say she still is In either case, she is someone I put as a role model because of the way she balances her life as a working woman, a mother, a humanitarian, a celebrity, etc I love what she has done to help others and bring awareness to other places of the world I love that she has adopted children who needed loving homes This book is a must read.
