Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah
Married to King Abdullah II ibn Al Hussein of Jordan, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah is not only a mother, a wife, a college graduate, a former (traditional) career woman, an Eminent Advocate for UNICEF and Honorary Chairperson for UNGEI, but she is likely best known as a global advocate for education and "spearheads efforts in Jordan to adopt a holistic approach to national education, encouraging agencies and organizations to work on classroom quality, teaching standards, computer access, family involvement, community investment, and health awareness. Through initiatives, like Madrasati and the Teachers Academy, Queen Rania is helping Jordan’s children get the best start in life by repairing and revamping local schools, while inspiring teachers to be their best. She believes that the power of partnerships between the public, private, and non-profit sectors is a source of great potential for change in Jordan’s education system."  Loved by many, Queen Rania participates and has started a number of community initiatives, including (but not limited to) the establishment of the Jordan River Foundation (JRF), a non-governmental organization, which has initiated socio-economic projects to enhance the livelihood of families and communities, through empowering women and developing their knowledge and skills in handicraft production and entrepreneurship.  Considered by some to be one of the world’s most powerful women, Queen Rania is a brilliant example of class, style and most importantly being of service.  [Sources: QueenRania.jo & Wiki]
