Have You Found Happiness Online?

Have you found happiness?

It's a simple question.

You.

You, who have toiled and struggled to bring your dreams into this online world. Are you not the bearer of your own achievements? The champion of your own successes?

Your online dreams - they are yours and yours alone. They have not come to be simply through force of wanting. You've ushered them into this connected world through your own efforts - your own strengths have made them a reality.

Of course, that is not what "they" will say.

Your enemies will seek to discredit you. They'll look for cracks in your foundations into which they'll run roughshod, tossing seeds of doubt into every perceived crevice in the hopes that they may someday blossom into a garden of your undoing.

These seeds will find no purchase, for it is YOU that will rise; YOU who will stand strong.

And who have you to thank for your successes?

Here is Congolese overnight Hollywood star Rachel Mwanza on the red carpet at the 85th Academy Awards.
She was accompanied by Director Kim Nguyen of "War Witch" nominated for the best foreign language film which was won by Michael Haneke's "Armour".



Rachel Mwanza is an actress from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, best known for her performance as Komona in the 2012 film Rebelle (War Witch).



Born in 1997 and abandoned by her parents as a child, Mwanza spent several years living as a street child in Kinshasa before being cast in Rebelle. She was cast in the film after director Kim Nguyen and producers Pierre Even and Marie-Claude Poulin saw her in a documentary film on the street kids of Kinshasa.[2] Due to her lack of education, she did not know how to read or write when she was first cast in the film; the filmmakers have since made arrangements to pay for her education and housing until she turns 18.

Kim Kardashian and the Idiots She Fooled in Nigeria

Millions of angry Nigerians are still criticizing Kim Kardashian’s controversial visit to Nigeria where she earned her biggest pay check for appearances as she was reportedly paid a whooping $500,000! for her fleeting 24 hours visit to Nigeria according to The Mail of UK. Kim has never been paid even half of that amount for an all night appearance in Hollywood! She makes from $20,000 - $200,000 only for celebrity appearances at ticket events by richer organizers.
