Clarissa Ward

In this episode, Chief International Correspondent for CNN, Clarissa Ward, talks about how 9/11 changed her career and how she now balances said career with motherhood (Clarissa is a firm believer that, in her words ‘you can have it all - but not at the same time!’).

We also run through what Clarissa packs to go to a war zone from tampons to make-up, how simple grooming moments provide a much-needed semblance of normalcy and an anchor of comfort when in those areas of conflict, and how she reconciles doing a job in which she sees suffering and violence on a daily basis with periods at home where her life is one filled with love and privilege.
