10. MICHELLE OBAMA
Loving a political figure has never been this easy for many people!
Although she came under the spotlight after her husband’s election as the 44th U.S. President, Michelle did not hide in the shadow of his achievements.
Michelle has made it to Forbes and Time 100’s 2019 lists of the most powerful women in the world thanks to how she used her power position and influential personality to improve the lives of people around her.
Michelle, 55, is running campaigns like the “Let’s Move” campaign that seeks to solve the problem of obesity in children by encouraging a healthy lifestyle, and the “Reach Higher” campaign that encourages children to pursue their education and prepare for a better future.
Michelle Obama is what many women around the world said they aspire to be like; someone who people see as a beacon of hope in the world of politics and to whom they can easily relate.
9. JACINDA ARDERN
The Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern is a force to be reckoned with. She is the youngest ever prime minister in New Zealand, serving since 2017 at just 37 years old.
After graduating from the University of Waikato in 2001, Ardern soon joined former Prime Minister Helen Clarke’s office as a researcher. Ardern later worked as a policy advisor to British Prime Minister, Tony Blair until she was elected President of the International Union of Socialist Youth in 2008.
In 2017, Ardern served as the leader of New Zealand’s Labour Party before she was elected as the country’s prime minister.
This year, Ardern has earned more admiration and respect, not only from other New Zealanders but also from people in different parts of the world including politicians like herself.
Following the tragic mass shooting of two mosques in March 2019, Ardern grieved showed great solidarity and sympathy with the families of the victims while also staying true to her promise of changing the country’s gun laws to prevent such tragedies by immediately banning all military-style guns.
