Just like it is hard to distinguish a comedian’s jokes from their seriousness, so too you may always be tempted to think that real moments in an actor’s life are happening on a movie melisa2 determine2 TIPTOPSTARSset. But sight of delegates with participants wearing official UN badges that run down from their neck and world flags-flooded conference halls, a scenario typical of the United Nations systems, tells you it is no movie. It is all about official world matters - work, work and work! That is a new experience international actress, Merlisa Determined is meant to start getting used to, apart from movie set activities she has commonly done since she opted for movie acting.

In her new status as United Nations Ambassador with Special Consultative Status from UNECOSOC,  Merlisa has since the start of last week been on her first outing in that capacity and is currently taking part in one of the several conference holding in Geneva, Switzerland.

Amongst other things, the actress cum UN Ambassador has been involved in discussions  at the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights which discussions centre around business and activities of the Strategic Alignment of Like Minds – Insurmountable Women, under whose direct banner, she is in the UN today.

I had a warm reception here Ernest and everyone has been very friendly, cooperative and helpful to me,” the award-winning actress told TIPTOPSTARS when we reached out to Merlisa. “It has generally been a great experience here in Geneva and I must say it's an honor to participate on world issues and networking with people from across the globe. I'm learning quite much. The sessions are very enriching.”

Another session which would definitely be more enriching is the screening of DIFRET, film released a couple days ago, co-produced by Angelina Jolie and directed by Zeresenay Berhane Mehari. The film highlights some of the virtues propagated by the United Nations including economic, social and political rights for women. The screening of DIFRET in will be followed by a discussion on the movie’s theme(s).

Merlisa, born in the Caribbean Islands is an experienced movie actress who has won several awards and had worked a great deal with filmmakers and artists around the world. She became an accredited UN Ambassador on September 18, 2014 following her devoted efforts in helping women and young girls in the U.S., Africa and the Caribbean Islands from less privileged backgrounds. She currently resides in the United States.
