Nominating Justification: Chief Editor of a monthly economic
publication for hotel and restaurant managers and food
industry professionals, Nadia Aubin-Mougin is also the
President of the Strasbourg Press Club - with 600 members,
the largest press club in France. She was born in Algeria,
where she studied Political Science (twice top of her class)
and came to France at the age of 24, having fought hard and
successfully to obtain a scholarship to complete her studies
at the University of Grenoble. During her studies in France
she took up various jobs in order to be able to support
herself, with the clear goal of advancing in her career while
also improving the society around her. Although she has
never traveled to the United States, Nadia Aubin-Mougin is
one of our most supportive advocates with the various
audiences she reaches. These audiences include not only
those journalists gathered together through the numerous
activities organized by the Strasbourg Press Club, but also
through her active involvement in the many debates for which
she is often invited to act as moderator. Topics range from
literary colloquiums and scientific research to the
integration of minorities into the French educational system
and labor force, employment and professional training for
women, and corporate sponsorship. When French journalists
Florence Aubenas and Hussein Hanoun were hostages in Iraq,
Nadia Aubin-Mougin was actively involved with "Reporters sans
Frontieres" (Reporters without Borders) and participated as a
speaker in debates on practices of the French press in crisis
situations and on the role of women in the French media. For
the last six years, she has often been approached by regional
and national political leaders (both from right and left) to
be more actively involved in politics.
We believe Mrs. Aubin-Mougin is the ideal candidate for this
program, which seems tailored for her needs in terms of
substantive content and exposure to those aspects of U.S.
society that will enrich her bank of knowledge and make her
an even more effective third-party endorser. She is already
a person of influence, a bright woman with an engaging
personality and strong character, and has demonstrated that
she will go far and her influence will only grow.
The timing of this program, in the middle of major regional
and national electoral races in France, would enable her to
share what she learned about the US at a time when there will
be increased focus on many of the issues she will have
learned about in the U.S. Nadia Aubin-Mougin has also
confessed to us that her dream was to become an active member
of a think tank from where she could observe what is
published in the Muslim press and analyze its impact over the
local populations - as deeply rooted in the Arab culture, she
has a strong sense of how Muslim populations react to what is
said by Western leaders. Her influence could greatly
contribute to developing greater understanding of our
policies and improving our image in France, particularly
among minority communities.
