Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah

Have you heard of Her majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan? She is the queen of Jordan, a celebrity, who even maintains a YouTube channel. You can see her website at which is also her official website. To quote Her Majesty from her website:

“A journey of a thousand miles can begin with a single click. With new technologies, we don’t have to leave home to make a friend half a world away... Many of you have been fortunate enough to experience my side of the Middle East…the warm hospitality, the peace-loving people, the stunning landscapes…the side that your algorithms might not prioritize. So, I’d like you to join in the conversation because we need more voices…”

Such true and impressive words. I read about her today in the Times of India, a national Indian daily. She has been a great advocate of women's rights and she desires to dispel the various stereotypes about muslims and about the Middle East through her YouTube channels and her other activities. She was also named one of the 100 most powerful women in the world by Forbes.
