In this video I show the press conference in which Angelina Jolie, together with UNHCR, promotes education for children living in refugee camps around the world. The plan is to raise a total of $220 million for refugee education part of it going to ninemillion.org and organization in which Fon is the digital champion for. At the press conference I was also on stage, first next to Angelina and then near her on stage. It was the first time I ever met her and my impression was that she is going to follow the steps of many of the American stars that went from being in movies to being in politics. But I am not only saying this for her looks or charisma. Angelina Jolie is truly smart and articulate, she has the right moral values and in my view she is likely to be a very good elected official 10 years from now.

I heared carefully what her intervention was about, and honestly I do beleive in the road she has chosen for herself. Angelina Jolie is person that is going to be remembered for a long time …the greatness in her is yet to come.

Politics is inertia. The brightest and most creative can make their mark without going near it. There is no reason why she would ever want to go near it.
