Famous for: Princess Amira is a wife of one of the richest people in the world, Saudi prince Al Waleed bin Talal. She is also strikingly beautiful and an ardent human rights activist and advocate.
There are so many children and women around the world that live in horrible conditions. That is simply unacceptable.
I am ready to drive a car in Saudi Arabia as soon as the ban on women drivers is lifted. I have an international driver’s license, and I drive a car in all the countries I travel to. (Women in Saudi Arabia are currently banned from driving because of the risk of creating “sinful temptation”; the ban should be lifted by the beginning of the 2012).
Princess Amira is the wife of Saudi prince and global tycoon Al Waleed bin Talal (he is ranked as the world’s 13th-richest person by Forbes magazine).
Her name Amira Al Taweel translates to “The Tall Princess”.
She is one of the first Saudi royal ladies to step out in public with her husband and to appear in public without an abaya or sheila.
Her Highness supports many humanitarian and charity organizations and is famous advocate for human rights.
Princess Amira is the head of the Executive Committee of the Alwaleed bin Talal Foundation (an international, non-profit organization dedicated to support programs and projects aimed at poverty disaster relief, interfaith dialogue and, perhaps most importantly at this time in Saudi Arabia, women’s empowerment).
This beautiful Saudi princess travels the world with one goal – to help those that are in need (she is visiting and working with orphans, sick children and abused women across the world).
Her Highness has many hobbies including: painting, poetry, horseback riding, singing, photography, etc.
In 2010, Princess Amira received the ITP Special “Humanitarian Award” on behalf of the Alwaleed bin Talal Foundation at the Arabian Business Achievement Awards ceremony.
Her Highness in one sentence – She is an amassing and an inspirational person all-around.
Always remember that true beauty comes from within.
