Cathrine | 12 comments This was great and I'm happy she took the time to answer some questions. But I'm wondering why there are several clips instead of one full video? Jumpcuts wouldn't be a bother for the viewer in this instance (Q&A) and it's easy to combine all the clips into one video by using a free editing software.

Ha... Euh... Yes, the 6 video clips were a bit surprising. I thought they were super long but it was 2-3 min each. Personally, it did not bother me, I suppose the author was on the rush and she was looking at the questions or maybe to some guidelines she wrote to answer questions. It could explain why she cut the videos, you know, to not have a few "blank" time out.
Anyway, she took time to answer members' questions so that is quite nice.

Very lovely! A heartfelt thank you to Mardini for answering our questions and to the mods for arranging this with her.

Thanks you for your answers, you really are a strong woman, I admire you so much, and I'm really happy you survived all of that and gives us a beautiful and deep message full of hope for the futur!

Even if I'm really scared about what happened recently with the Turkish republic, I'm sad many more refugees will come to Europe and try to reach England which is actually saying "No" to immigration with the "Brexit".

I love you so much !! I hope you will succeed to win the Gold in 2020 !
