Marie Noelle survived the tsunami in Thailand. She told me about how she was travelling on a bus when the wave hit and killed everyone aboard. Somehow she managed to escape, was swept away and washed up kilometers away. This was her secret story as a participant in France’s third season of the reality program Secret Story. Despite her harrowing experience, Marie has worked through her survivor’s guilt and now is one of the most cheerful, life-affirming people I have ever met. She was a real pleasure to talk and work with.
