Loved being with our @easterncongo
team and partners including Nobel Prize winner @drdenismukwege
. Heroes all around. This week’s trip reminds me that despite its challenges, the Congo is home to some of the world’s most impressive people and majestic places. This new year I am wishing for continued growth, less violence and a peaceful transition of power for our friends in #Congo #DRC
The past 72 hours have taken an enormous toll on first responders and emergency services in California, who are heroically battling multiple wildfires across the state. These fires have been intensified by a severe drought and by climate change, which affects all people, regardless of their political viewpoint. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the victims, their families, and those who have lost their homes. To find out how you can support relief efforts, visit calfund.org/disaster (link in bio)

Congratulations to our hero Dr. Denis Mukwege on the #NobelPeacePrize

partner honored for his courageous dedication to human rights and justice in eastern Congo.
I can think of three incredible reasons why today is so special. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and father figures out there, and to the women that empower them to be the best they can be. We are all so fortunate beyond measure.
is officially wrapped. It still hits me how fortunate I am to get to do this, and it never gets old. So grateful for every opportunity I get, the people I get to work with, and witnessing beauty in all sorts of surprising places. Here are some shots from our last day at Base Camp with director J.C. Chandor.
So proud of Edson Jean and @joshjeanb
