During a recent chat with Time 100, she shared how amazed she is by Zahara. “My daughter is from Ethiopia, one of my children. And I have learned so much from her. She is my family, but she is an extraordinary African woman, and her connection to her country, her continent, is very—it’s her own, and it’s something I only stand back in awe of.” Although we don’t have much information about Zahara, we can say that she’s truly remarkable.
