Welcome to IG Angelina Jolie
Not only was her entry to the media a bang, but fans are already praising her for her motive.
The girl, who wrote about her fears to Jolie seemed scared. She was sick worried about how the Taliban will add a full stop to her school career. She said ”we are all imprisoned again.”
Jolie has been recently starring in The Eternals, which is an upcoming Marvel movie. She recounted the instances where she met the Afghanistan couple before the 9/11 attacks took place. Furthermore, she also stated how it was the first time for her to meet refugees who left the Taliban’s rule.
She further says, “It is sickening to watch Afghans being displaced yet again out of the fear and uncertainty that has gripped their country,” she wrote. “To spend so much time and money, to have bloodshed and lives lost only to come to this, is a failure almost impossible to understand.”
She also added a hint of criticism for the world leaders and referred to how Afghani refugees are being ”treated as a burden”.
She wants to add more people to her voice, as a conclusion to her post, she says,
”Knowing that if they had the tools and respect, how much they would do for themselves. And meeting so many women and girls who not only wanted an education but fought for it. Like others who are committed, I will not turn away. I will continue to look for ways to help. And I hope you’ll join me,”
The whole letter of the teenage girl is the first official Instagram post from Angelina’s account. It also shows an image of seven women showing their back to the camera.
