San Diego County News contributor Judith Cochran interviews author Gabriella van Rij. She was plucked from a Pakistani orphanage at the age of three and adopted by a Dutch family. Raised in Holland, she learned about bullies and racism the hard way, but she refused to remain a victim. Instead, she used understanding and empathy to defeat fear and mistrust. The techniques she pioneered are even more relevant in a country—and economy—that is increasingly global and multicultural. Today, Gabriella is an author and activist who speaks to thousands every month.
