JILL SEAMAN has spent decades exploring the most effective way to bring modern medicine to the beleaguered people of South Sudan. "The thing is, it’s not that I’m taking risks. Everybody’s taking risks. Life is a risk. Everybody who lives there, they know that life could be gone in an hour. And yet they live. And they are happy. And I get to touch millions of people and hopefully help them. How could I be more lucky?"

JILL SEAMAN, war zone doctor, has spent decades exploring the most effective way to bring modern medicine to the beleaguered people of South Sudan. In 1989 she arrived in the midst of one of the worst epidemics to hit Africa—from a tropical disease called kala-azar—and a brutal civil war. Today the war is over, South Sudan has declared independence, and the epidemic has subsided, but violence, disease, and perhaps worst of all, fear, still plague the region that has become Seaman’s second home.
#Hero of the Day! Amazing Doctor in Sudan: JILL SEAMAN takes risks everyday: "The thing is, it’s not that I’m taking risks. Everybody’s taking risks. Life is a risk. Everybody who lives there, they know that life could be gone in an hour. And yet they live. And they are happy. And I get to touch millions of people and hopefully help them. How could I be more lucky?"

Words of wisdom from Liz Taylor
I didn't see myself any different from my white counterparts in school. I just didn't! I thought I could do what they did. And what I didn't do well, I thought people were going to give me the opportunity to do well, because maybe they saw my talent, so they would give me a chance. I had no idea that they would see me completely different. -Viola Davis
Who can I trust? You have to invest in somebody and chances are you're probably going to invest in somebody who's going to deceive you. I've been conned a couple of times, but now I'm a little more savvy. -Maggie Gyllenhaal

Every once in a while a high-profile woman will divulge the dirty underbelly of trying to be a woman in the work world. I remember the first time I saw it. It was when Brenda Barnes stepped down from a huge career at Pepsi to be with her kids. And she announced that she felt like a bad parent spending so much time away from them. Thereby implying that the other moms with huge jobs like hers were also ignoring their kids. (Penelope Trunk - Get pregnant at 25 if you want a high-powered career)

“If you're comfortable with yourself, then it's sexy. Maybe people think I look sexy because I feel sexy. I am a very liberated person that way. I'm very comfortable with my sexuality, my body, my face - well, sometimes I'm not comfortable with my face, but it's stuck there and there's nothing I can do about it.” -Scarlett Johansson

Audrey Hepburn spent many years in Africa helping the helpless. Being a starving child in WWII herself, Audrey volunteered extensively with UNICEF to help others. Yes, she is an icon for her style but also for her compassion and humanitarian work. She's also proof that atheists are capable of having an incredible sense of morality without a belief in God or an afterlife. Her good deeds were not attempts at gaining entry to Heaven, but unselfish acts of love for her fellow humans. #RoleModel

It's interesting how we often can't see the ways in which we are being strong - like, you can't be aware of what you're doing that's tough and brave at the time that you're doing it because if you knew that it was brave, then you'd be scared. -Lena Dunham

It used to be that you had to make female TV characters perfect so no one would be offended by your 'portrayal' of women. Even when I started out on 'The Office' eight years ago, we could write our male characters funny and flawed, but not the women. And now, thankfully, it's completely different. -Mindy Kaling

Were really feeling this graphic fairytale about what might happen if the princess actually said no to the prince. Because happily ever after doesnt always have to end with Prince Charming
Funny quotes , the princess said no !! Hahahaha
not always true but funny. (Once upon a time a prince asked a beautiful princess: will you marry me? The princess said NO, and the princess lived happily ever after.)
"Once upon a time, there was a Princess..." A fairy tale I could get behind! This is so me it's not even funny! Hahaha
single life... Happily ever after! I sure love my rock concerts.
I grew up never seeing myself on-screen, and it's really important to me to give people who look like me a chance to see themselves. I want to see myself as the hero of any story. I want to see myself save the world from the bomb. -Sandra Oh
