This is Fabi fighting for her mum before the eyes of all of the Netherlands, with studio audience in the background, sitting at a table under the cameras and lights with half a dozen hardened professional media types, as if she ate them every day for breakfast. She did a perfect and a fantastic job, which left a deep impression on me and many other people. I guess it helped that the hosts "Pauw and Witteman" were already on her side, and that Maarten 't Hart coincidentally happened to be on the show the same day.
Even if you don't understand Dutch, I recommend you take a look: Pauw & Witteman, 14-09-06
. The first two items.
I think Fabi is much like her mother to look like, and in character too. I think they are both wonderful. The Chinese have a saying: what doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger. Nothing like a bit of adversity to strengthen your character, if you already have one.
Some mobloggers may know Fabi under the name of Izadora
