Sheikha Mozah

Sheikha Mozah was named one of the world’s most stylish woman by a US vanity magazine not only because of her good taste in clothes but also her good taste in jewelry like the  la vie parisienne jewelry .    Sheikha Mozah got married at the age of 18 to the Emir of Qatar – the 2nd of 3 wives  but that didn’t stop her from getting a BA in sociology and holding many positions of power in Qatar.  Unlike any other women in the Emir’s life – Sheikha Mozah had always been high profile in politics involving the Qatar’s government.   She was the driving force behind many policies made and was also named one of Forbes’ most powerful woman.

Wael Ghonim

I read about Wael Ghonim because I follow what Google is up to – and knowing him first as a Google executive and now an international figure who is into the pro-democracy demonstrations in Egypt -and after an interview was questioned and interrogated by the Egyptian police and is now named as Time 100 most influential person for the year 2011.

I’m very touched by his interview and because of his movement which lead to 12 million Egyptians removing Hosni Mubarak and his regime.  He was so humble standing during the ceremony honoring people like him at TIME – was humbling to me as well. Born from a middle class family in Cairo – Wael grew up in Saudi Arabia, he currently resides in UAE.
