The Hill Profiles Griffin

From here:

Jennifer Griffin was a 20-year-old sophomore at Harvard in 1989 when she took a year off and moved to South Africa. A month into her stay, she was stringing for African and British newspapers and had already met Greg Myre, the fellow journalist she would one day marry.

They met at a rally in Soweto on a Sunday. By Tuesday, he had asked her out, and they haven’t been apart since.

For Griffin, now 38, looking back on it all seems like a blur. She’s now the Pentagon correspondent for Fox News — a job that brings her stateside for the first time in 18 years and deep into unfamiliar territory: a world of calm, free of bloodshed and war.

And trust her, calm is not easy.

Now with time on her hands, Griffin can look back on the adventure that her life was while living abroad. With stick-straight shoulder-length blond hair and striking green eyes, she has the polished look of a TV journalist, but projects the down-to-earth nature of someone who has been through a lot. Still, you would never know she has lived in several war-torn parts of world.
