I saw her talk on a news programme last night...

shes so composed and articulate, and clear-sighted and insightful and compassionate and calm and stylish and unique...

and the work she does/ what she acheives is OUTSTANDING..

<swoon>

heres a link to her wiki page...but it doesnt do her any justice

Never heard of her but she sounds like a caped crusader grin

She is my hero! Seriously, the woman should be made a saint, I have no idea how she finds the energy or the patience for what she does. Truly inspirational.

She always makes me feel completely inadequate. Awesome work.

Re the 'stylish' comment.

Because I thought perhaps the photo in the link didn't do her justice, I ran her name through Google Images.

I can't find a stylish photo amongst them!

She does sound like an amazing woman though and since looking at Google, I do recognise her now.

yes, I bloody love her. I would vote for her to be president of the world.

bejeezus Wed 04-Jul-12 10:59:40

Ok, heres a link to HardTalk which she was on last night.

we all need to know who she is!

LemonTurd Wed 04-Jul-12 11:02:10

I think she's amazing smile

From a priviledged background, she has dedicated her life to helping others. Such an inspiration.

mumeuro Wed 04-Jul-12 11:04:58

absolutely not, Camila is FANTASTIC, a truly remarkable woman.

weblette Wed 04-Jul-12 11:07:50

Brilliant brilliant woman. President of the universe agreed!

MegBusset Wed 04-Jul-12 11:10:01

Great woman, and surely the person with the best name to appear frequently on the news, alongside fire brigade spokesman Turan Turan smile

Fantastic woman, I had the privilege of meeting her once and it was unforgettable.

bejeezus Wed 04-Jul-12 11:13:54

BadDayAyTheOrifice Wed 04-Jul-12 11:16:40

She speaks a lot of sense that woman. I think she's fab.

bejeezus Wed 04-Jul-12 11:18:47

my work/job feels meaningless today!!

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 04-Jul-12 11:19:38

I love her too, she's inspirational.
I can never pronounce her name though.

bejeezus Wed 04-Jul-12 11:23:25

no neither can I lady
No one can pronounce my name either. It is mildly irritating, so i need to know how to pronounce Camila Batmanthingy properly

Quenelle Wed 04-Jul-12 11:27:54

I too think she's awesome. I've never had cause to say her name out loud but in my head I say 'Camilla Batmangaily'.

That's not right is it?

bejeezus Wed 04-Jul-12 11:28:53

In my head, I say

Batmanheldig

MegBusset Wed 04-Jul-12 11:29:47

The Beeb say Batman-jelly

Hullygully Wed 04-Jul-12 11:30:20

I want to be her when I grow up

WowOoo Wed 04-Jul-12 11:30:34

I agree - she's a wonderful woman.

I cannot ever remember how to say her name properly, so I say 'Camilla Batty dresses.'

QuickLookBusy Wed 04-Jul-12 11:32:47

She is awesome, she has just bben on Woman's Hour. I love her and everything she tries to do.

I don't understand why she isn't ruling the world.
