Queen Rania of Jordan
This leading lady more than just sparkles as the wife of Jordan’s King Abdullah II; she shows what it truly means to serve her country. She is avidly passionate about education, women’s empowerment, cross cultural communication, and the welfare of children.
Some monarchs might shy away from modern technology but she welcomes it. Queen Rania keeps lively accounts with Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter with over 600,000 followers. Not only do these social media outlets connect her with people around the world but they also increase East-West dialogue and understanding. Not a bad way to bridge ancient traditions with modern ways of life.
