There is no place I would have rather been today, on Human Rights Day, than at the United Nations for the Hague Talks. A big thank you to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the American Bar Association, the UN, and the International Criminal Court Consortium for being such gracious hosts and for the invitation.

I met some incredible people tonight, and I ate amazing mushrooms. It was great to be surrounded by inspiring practitioners who are out in the trenches revolutionizing an ever-changing international law sphere.
If you ever doubt that dreams come true, I got some things to say: I met and spoke to Nicolas Sarkozy, I was published in Latina Magazine, and I went to the Hague Talks at the UN on Human Rights Day. Dreams come true; some in unexpected ways, and some are dreams you never dared to ask for because in your own mind they weren’t possible, but anything is possible. God is [too] good.
“Happy Human Rights Day!” From: The snowy, sparkly, magical New York City. I am still giddy about this evening. My own eyes are sparkly and magical, like a NYC snow globe.
