"I hope i don't disturb you. I watched a lot of your reports on YouTube and your blog, I wanted to tell you that i really like your style of journalism. You have a charisma and I must say information comes alive with you! I was looking for Black Eyed Peas videos and I found one of your interviews. Your energy, your background, your style = a really nice reporter.... Now your influence comes to France :)"
