Feeling wonderful to share with you that my YouTube channel has been featured at #5 in the Top 30 Expat YouTubers to Follow in 2018 by Feedspot
I'm closer to 50 than 40 and it just goes to show that we're never too old to learn a new skill and the benefits of stepping outside our comfort zone. So many of you have been supportive and subscribed -- and a few of you actually watch my videos from time to time -- and I thank you for that! My channel isn't big by successful... vlogger standards but next month Wanders With Angela (formerly Expat Angela) will hit 1 Million views and I'll be quite proud of the milestone.

Also, over the past year I've noticed that my channel is a much bigger mix of travel and reviews than just expat life, which it used to be when I lived in India or China. To me, Expat Angela was a slightly confusing channel name so I crowd sourced my friends this weekend and am in the process of changing over everything to Wander with Angela. I hope you'll be as wonderful and supportive under my new channel name as you all have been. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. On Facebook and YouTube I only have troll problems a couple times a year, which is something unheard of! You're such a kind group and I'm grateful every day that I can do what I love and it is accepted with kindness online (not something every blogger and vlogger can say). So thank you.

You'll have seen my recent posts about the Syrian man stuck more than 50 days in Kuala Lumpur's airport, Hassan al-Kontar. FINALLY he shared some good news and has asked for our help ... all of our help!!! Here's what he's asking:
1. Email Mr. Ahmed Hussen, Canada's Minister of Immigration
at >> firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Write and tell him that you support a Temporary Resident Permit for Hassan to travel to Canada immediately and work his case from there
3. Please share th...is post
From my side, I am getting to know Hassan more and more every day and I am proud to now call him a friend. He's a brave man fighting not only for himself and his wish to live in peace but for all Syrians and their inability to travel freely because much of the world has labeled all Syrians as terrorists or some form of threat.
Any support you can offer is very welcome. It only takes a moment to send an email and share this post but your voice could change a life today. Big thanks XO

The video I shot after meeting him - https://youtu.be/C2ucHE1riHk
If you follow my channel, you'll know that last weekend I met Hassan al-Kontar, the Syrian living more than 45 days inside Malaysia's main airport. Seeing his story covered by the world's leading news channels gives us all hope. Al Jazeera English stays in constant contact with him and today a small moment from my my YouTube video was aired on Al Jazeera's live news program (WATCH IT HERE https://youtu.be/scGxMQhk77g), with me talking about how most Syrian are living lives t...hat they are forced into simply because they weren't lucky to be born in SoCal like me.
I'm proud to know this brave man, who is teaching me about not taking privilege for granted and so much more. To watch my full 10-min video, shot after meeting Hassan in KL's airport last weekend, click here >> https://youtu.be/C2ucHE1riHk
And as always, if you can help Hassan, please get in touch and I'll connect you straight away. Hugs to you XOXO
DAY 46! Meet Hassan, the Syrian living in a busy airport, listening to the constant sound of that ‘ding, dong, ding’ that plays before all P.A. announcements, never being able to tune them out. And never knowing from one day to another if he'll eat or get to wash up properly in the public restroom. At least the world is now watching and sending their love to Hassan with a message of hope that this chapter ends soon … with a very happy ending.
I am one of only 3 writers or journalists who has sat with him face-to-face. We met a week ago and the truth is that this Syrian man has changed my life.
