Her happiness lies in using her creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Natalie has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective.

World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand her intellectual horizons and broaden her understanding of the world are very attractive to Portman.
