Responses

  1. I started traveling about seven years ago with film. I would go to places like Cambodia… I was very nervous to call the U.N. agency at the time… So first I went to Washington [to the UNHCR office] and I sat with everybody there and said… "If you could just help me, I'll pay my way." I spent the next year and a half going to, first, two camps in Africa, and then Pakistan and Cambodia… and had the opportunity to have this great education… I was transformed in such an amazing way.
