  1. These are all terrific quotes, Karen! I read her book recently and there was so much I highlighted – an inspiring and humble young person with such deep wisdom. I love how at one moment she can be arguing with her brothers, the next talking to heads of states!

    • Thank you very much, Annika.
      It is great that she recovered and decided to stand up and verbally fight. I am glad that you enjoyed her book so much.
