On September 26, 2013, Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan attended the 2013 Global Citizen Awards Gala in New York City.  During last evening’s event Her Majesty was awarded the 2013 Atlantic Council Global Citizen Award for:

“…her impressive humanitarian leadership and efforts that have helped bring about positive change around the world. Through her role as a member of the United Nations High-Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda and her advocacy for global education and the empowerment of women, Queen Rania raises awareness about violence against children and works toward bridging cultural and religious divides—at a time when this is most needed.”
