US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power Interviewed By Tamsen Fadal

13 Sep

From France to Germany to right here in the United States, it’s becoming a frightening norm our government’s highest officials are working to stop.

“Terrorism is the number one challenge clearly, one that is hitting more and more countries,” U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said.

A challenge that requires a global effort.

“[It’s] about] getting our systems better where we are sharing more information and where a terrorist doesn’t have a chance to dodge national security in one country by going to a weak state where they get to hang out unbothered,” she

I sat down with United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, to try and understand the complexities and how we, as a society, can help.

“We understand the reach of social media, where do you begin with that process?,” I asked. “The private companies are a lot more alert to this and they’re doing more to prevent the violence,” she replied. “It’s not going to be governments alone, it really needs to be citizen action, community action.”

Social media is also what this Pulitzer Prize winner is using to promote bringing refugees into the United States.

“It gets away from the abstraction, are you for refugees or are you against them,” she explained. “It makes it about real individuals, totally humanizing the issue.”

The #RefugeesWelcome campaign centers around celebrities who are immigrants, highlighting their positive contributions.

“We have this amazingly rich record of bringing more than three million people,” she said. “None of whom has carried out a terrorist attack in the United States.”

A message of diversity and acceptance, this wife and mother of two hopes to pass on to her children.

“My kids keep me honest,” she smiled. “I come home and I feel like I nailed it in the Security Council and my boy would go, ‘did they change what they were doing?’ and I say, not quite yet, but give me time.”

Helping her balance the professional with the personal? A close confidant, you may have heard of him, President Obama.

“[He played] a critical role in preventing me from screwing up my relationship with my now husband,” Ambassador Power remembered. “Once he has seen you most vulnerable and encouraged your relationship, I think you can talk about ISIL or anything else.”

And as the youngest U.S. Ambassador, she’s worked to connect with people around the world on a more, let’s say, entertaining, level.

“A few of the highlights have been taking the women ambassadors to see Eclipsed,” she said. “I did get 15 tickets to Hamilton, you would think I would be able to solve the war in Syria since I did that.”

From the laughs to the long hours, this job is extremely demanding but the key word for Ambassador Power is balance.

“I try to blend it all, I’ve been in the administration now going on eight years,” she said. “It’s a 24/7 commitment, but I know there will be life after government as well.”

Join me for AVON 39 The Walk To End Breast Cancer

5 Apr

I am participating in AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. It won’t be easy, but that’s why it’s worth it. From now until AVON 39 weekend, I’ll train to strengthen my body to walk over 39 miles in two days. I’ll also be raising funds to crush breast cancer. This is where you come in.

As so many of you know, I lost my mother to breast cancer when I was young. She was my best friend. I believe she looks down on my everyday and gives me my strength to deal with anything no matter how big or small.  

My hope is that one day we will be walking to celebrate the end of breast cancer. But, until then, it is my passion and my mission to do all that I can to help fight this disease in any way that I can.

I hope I can count on your support.

You can make a donation right here on my webpage by clicking the “Donate Now” button to the right. If you prefer to write a check, click the “Donate By Mail” button and follow the instructions on the form.

Your donations will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation. The dollars you pledge will put food on the table of a breast cancer patient and her family. They will enable access to mammograms and medicine, fuel research, and save lives. Need any more reason to click that Donate Now button?

I’m walking with thousands of other 39ers. We’re banding together in solidarity and have one goal: to take breast cancer down. So many sisters and mothers and friends have been lost. We see a world without breast cancer for our daughters and nieces. AVON 39 is a force of change that can’t be stopped. By supporting me with a donation, you’re part of it.

 

AVON 39 is The Walk to End Breast Cancer. It isn’t easy, but that’s what makes it worth it. As you train to strengthen your body, as you raise funds to crush breast cancer, as you walk farther than you ever thought you could – you’ll discover you have the power of 39.

Soldiers’, Sailors’, Marines’, Coast Guard and Airmens’ Club 2014 Media Award honors WPIX anchor Tamsen Fadal

11 Oct

To the real winners our servicemen and servicewomen – Thank You.

I AM SO DEEPLY HUMBLED TO ACCEPT THIS AWARD.
TO BE RECOGNIZED BY SUCH AN AMAZING ORGANIZATION IS SUCH A THRILL FOR ME. I WANT TO SAY “THANK YOU” TO ALL THE AMAZING MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE SERVED AND PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE.

MY OWN BRIEF EXPERIENCE IN AFGHANISTAN, ALONGSIDE OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM, REALLY CHANGED MY PERSPECTIVE.

LAST NIGHT, I WAS JUST THINKING OF WORDS I WOULD USE TO DESCRIBE THOSE DAYS AND NIGHTS.

I WAS SCARED. LONELY. FAR FROM HOME.

AND, AT THE SAME TIME, I WAS SO PROUD. REALLY IN AWE OF THE DEDICATION AND WHAT WAS HAPPENING AROUND ME. AND, AGAIN, SO HUMBLED TO SEE, FIRST HAND, WHAT THEY ARE DOING FOR US.

BUT, OF COURSE, THAT’S NOT WHERE THE FIGHT ENDS FOR OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T ACTUALLY SEE HOW HARD IT CAN BE TO COME BACK HOME. THAT’S WHY MY PASSION TODAY, OUTSIDE OF MY REPORTING, IS WORKING WITH ‘SHINING SERVICE WORLDWIDE’, WHOSE MISSION IS TO HELP VETERANS RE-INTEGRATE INTO CIVILIAN LIFE. AND, I CAN’T EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH, IT’S SO IMPORTANT THAT WE DON’T EVER LET ANY OF OUR VETERANS FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS.

ONE MORE TIME, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL HONOR. BUT THIS HONOR WOULDN’T EVEN EXIST WITHOUT WHAT SO MANY OF YOU HAVE DONE FOR ALL OF US.
