Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is on her way to being just like her mommy — a mini Angelina Jolie!

One-fourth of the Jolie-Pitt clan traveled on Saturday to commemorate World Refugee Day with Syrian refugees in Turkey.

The 9-year-old got to see her mom in action as they went to visit the Midyat Refugee Camp in Mardin, Turkey.

Angie made a call to action to ask others to prevent conflict and support refugees.

She said:

"We are here for a simple reason: This region is at the epicentre of a global crisis. Nearly 60 million people are displaced from their homes. That is one in every 122 people on our planet. Our world has never been richer or healthier or more advanced. Yet never before have so many people been dispossessed and stripped of their basic human rights. We should call this what it is: not just a "refugee crisis," but a crisis of global security and governance, that is manifesting itself in the worst refugee crisis ever recorded – and a time of mass displacement.

The greatest single source of these massive refugee flows is Syria. In the space of four years, Turkey has become the country with the largest number of refugees anywhere in the world, with 1.8 million displaced Syrian and Iraqis. Lebanon, where I was yesterday, is hosting an even greater density of displaced people: every fourth person in Lebanon is now a Syrian refugee. People are running out of places to run to. If you are an Iraqi or a Syrian fleeing violence, where do you go? Every border country is being pushed beyond its limits."

Seriously, so powerful.

Why isn't this woman president yet? Or at least, why doesn't she hold a political title yet?!
