Don’t miss a BRAND NEW episode of The Women’s Eye Radio with host Stacey Gualandi and my guest, Natalie Allen, the award-winning broadcast journalist for CNN International and host of the 12th Annual Women’s Leadership Conference on August 27th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For over 25 years, Allen has been living out her dream job, reporting many of the world’s biggest news and environmental stories as an anchor for CNN, MSNBC, and The Weather Channel.

She jokes, “On my deathbed, I’m going to say I just didn’t learn enough.”

As someone who has watched CNN since day one, I have always admired Allen’s career. She admits this is a difficult time to be in the media business with many journalists feeling “beat up,” but she explains how networks are keeping their integrity in check and conveying that through their reporting.

After shooting, writing, and producing a 3-part series of her own on child trafficking in 2011, Allen says what now “feeds her soul” is getting out in the real world with real people and doing stories herself.

What also feeds her soul is the opportunity to inspire other women. This year marks Allen’s fifth time as host for the Women’s Leadership Conference. It’s a chance to address a momentous year for women’s issues like #MeToo, pay equity and how to help women move ahead.

Be sure to tune as Allen gives advice to “Natalie wannabes,” describes overcoming insecurity and emphasizes the importance of a good eyeliner.

Don’t miss a BRAND NEW interview on The Women’s Eye Radio as I chat with author and foreign network news correspondent Atia Abawi about her just released second Young Adult novel,  A Land of Permanent Goodbyes.

A mutual photojournalist friend introduced me to Atia. After reading her book I had quite an emotional reaction to the refugee experiences she describes. I wanted to talk with her to get a better understanding of a crisis that cannot be ignored.

Author Atia Abawi's bok, Land of Permanent Goodbyes provided by Atia to TWE | The Women's Eye Magazine and Radio ShowThis award-winning journalist is based in the Middle East and researched the global refugee crisis extensively to tell a timely story of one teenage boy and his family’s fight for survival in war-torn Syria.

It is a gut-wrenching tale that doesn’t shy away from the unspeakable violence, the “hunters” and the never-ending search for safety.

For Abawi, A Land of Permanent Goodbyes hits very close to home as she was born a refugee to Afghan parents in West Germany and raised in the U.S.

Her family’s decision to flee war in Afghanistan helped her to understand the plight of families who must try to outlive a tremendous loss.

With this book, Abawi hopes to create empathy and raise awareness of a crisis that is happening in real time. Abawi says many tears were shed writing this story, but she says it was a story that needed to be shared. Take a listen to her story!
