1. Queen Rania
The Kuwaiti-born Queen of Jordan came from humble beginnings. She wasn’t born into royalty at all. After graduating from American University in Cairo, Rania took jobs with Citibank and eventually with Apple Inc. in Amman, before marrying eventual King Abdullah. She has one of the most active online profiles of any politician, posting videos discussing Middle East issues. She is a strong advocate for Muslim women having the option to wear a hijab.
