TRIBUTES TO YASMINE RYAN
''She was a wonderful human being and immediately bonded with whoever was in front of her. We spent a long evening this past summer sharing experiences – about freelancing, dealing with sexual harassment from public officials and others as a female journalist, etc. - and most importantly, brainstorming about how to change things for the better. She knew what it was like to struggle and had so many plans to try to change the sector and the world. And was so eager to write a book on Tunisia and reporting from there in those tumultuous times. In a sector that can often be competitive, she was sweetness and generosity personified. We will all miss her so very much.''
