There are people in this world who are truly interesting. Those that have impacted my life, without knowing about. As a child I remember watching Christiane Amanpour reporting from far off places, war torn countries. Because of her, and the images I had of her I formed the opinion that women can do anything.

She has been the epitome of professionalism. A woman of grace and courage and while I do not know her personally she has inspired me. When her family couldn’t return to Iran they made a new life. When her sister decided journalism wasn’t for her Christiane stepped and took her classes and became an accidental journalist.

She has left CNN to host This Week for ABC News and I wish her the best of luck.
