Angelina Jolie, Actress, Filmmaker, and Humanitarian. She has received one Academy Award, 2 Screen Actors Guild Awards, and 3 Golden Globes.

"But again, what is our answer, as citizens? Do we withdraw from the world where before we felt a responsibility to be part of solutions? I am a proud American and I am an internationalist. I believe anyone committed to human rights is an internationalist. It means seeing the world with a sense of fairness and humility, and recognizing our own humanity in the struggles of others. It stems from love of one’s country, but not at the expense of others - from patriotism, but not from narrow nationalism. It includes the view that success isn’t being better or greater than others, but finding your place in a world where others succeed too. And that a strong nation, like a strong person, helps others to rise up and be independent."
