Alyne Tamir, the vlogger behind Dear Alyne and Nas Daily’s girlfriend and travel partner, recently met the President of Malta Marie Louise Coleiro Preca at San Anton Palace.
Visibly excited to meet the President, Alyne begins to cry soon after meeting the President. Saying that it was the first time she had cried in public in two years, she explains why exactly she began crying after meeting the Maltese President.
She’s met people like Bill Clinton and footballer Neymar, but she says that her meeting with the President was different.
“Gender barriers still exist,” she says, “even for Presidents.” She then talks about her dream for a world where these barriers don’t exist, before ending with the President telling people to believe in themselves and remain determined.
Speaking to Lovin Malta, President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca spoke highly of meeting the vloggers.
“Seeing Alyne’s energy, and understanding perfectly where she is coming from, gives me more determination to continue working against gender discrimination and in favour of gender equality,” said the President.
