The Best 4th of July Ever
© 2010 Leighann Lord

It’s easy for the Fourth of July to go by in a blur of beer, barbeque and fireworks, but I never thought I’d have the best Fourth ever 4,625 miles away from American shores. My recent tour for Armed Forces Entertainment culminated with a final show at Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo. If you’re wondering where that is think The Balkans, or for you history buffs, The Ottoman Empire.

Hi, my name is Roya Nazarian, and I’m a Woodhull alumna as well as a summer intern.  I want to share my recent experience on a trip to Israel, which was truly life changing and enlightening for me.  I would recommend visiting the country to anyone who is interested in historical sights, politics, nature, and a little self-discovery!

Last month, I took my first trip ever to Israel with Taglit Birthright.  As a moderately conservative Jew from Long Island, I grew up hearing various accounts of the “home land,” from my parents, my rabbi, and family friends.  One cousin of mine raved about the delicious shawarma and beautiful Jewelry in Tel Aviv upon her return from Israel.  Another cousin returned with a whole new outlook on life and Judaism after visiting the holy city in Jerusalem and the West Wall.  I can’t say I had either of their exact experiences, but my trip was unique nevertheless.

The visit consisted of thirty-five Americans, like me, in their late teens and early twenties.  We all arrived extremely jet lagged and slightly confused about the dozens of different directions we were given: “always cover your head and shoulders in order to prevent dehydration, do not stop drinking water, don’t lag behind!”

Often heard and seen on XM Sirius, comedy clubs, and other venues, Leighann Lord is seriously hella funny. Her comedy is the perfect mix of sarcasm and social commentary. More than a one-liner, she’s rocked on TV – appearing on ABC (The View), HBO (The Original Def Comedy Jam), Comedy Central (The World Stands Up and Premium Blend), Lifetime (Girl’s Night Out), and FoxNews (The Strategy Room). A writer as well, Leighann’s views on an array of topics can be read in Stage Time Magazine, The Huffington Post, and on her website: VeryFunnyLady.com. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Leighann Lord.

Will: Who is Leighann Lord? Why comedy?

Leighann: Leighann Lord is a world traveling stand-up comedian, writer, actress, black belt, type A workaholic-perfectionist, and unabashed sci-fi fan. I love writing, performing and making people laugh. It also helps that I hated my day job and being cooped up in a cubicle all day made me itch. And by itch, I mean cry.

The San Francisco Chronicle’s Leah Garchik writes:

After the U.N. Conference on Women in Beijing 15 years ago, Hillary Rodham Clinton planted the seed for Vital Voices, a nongovernmental organization that works worldwide to support “emerging women leaders and social entrepreneurs.” Cissie Swig, profoundly committed to a host of global causes, political campaigns, women’s rights and the arts, is on its board. And last Monday, she invited about 30 friends, mainly women with parallel passions, to dinner at Villa Taverna to meet Vital Voices President Alyse Nelson, who described the group’s work: identifying those women, educating and training them in financial skills, marketing, communication, leadership.

This gathering wasn’t just about providing financial support. After Nelson described projects in nearly 127 countries and suggested the possibility of a Bay Area council, guests leaped in with ideas for participating. Mills College President Janet Holmgren said Mills would be excited to be “the nexus” for a Bay Area presence; Anette Harris, board member for the International Museum of Women, suggested that institution and Vital Voices might work together on a speakers’ series; retired Bishop William Swing of the United Religions Initiative said, “A lot of times religion keeps women from taking a place at the table; we would like to sit down and talk with you about that”; radio producer-writer-Woodhull Institute founder Margo Magowan talked about training women for on-air appearances; and Cissie’s daughter-in-law Darian Swig, whose passion is Human Rights Watch, discussed the importance of supporting Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and suggested joining forces on a Liberia working group.

Cissie Swig had accomplished the evening’s goal, as she expressed in a goodnight wish: “Stay connected.”

Dear Woodhull Community,

My name is Arielle Algarín, I am a rising Junior in the CUNY Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College and I am a summer intern at the Woodhull Institute.  I am majoring in Political Science and am interested in the expanding role of women in politics and gender equality.  My blog posts will reflect these interests and provide a weekly update of general women’s issues that are being discussed in the media.  The Weekly News Wrap-Up will include opinions and profiles of female leaders in politics and business.  My goal is to provide a resource for you to quickly access information that as a member of the Woodhull community would reflect your interests and keep you up-to-date with current events.
