Queen Noor talks empowering women, plight of refugees at Judson forum
April 18, 2016.
Children often expect Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan to wear a tiara and be like the fairy tale characters they read about, but the Arab-American queen is down-to-earth and focused on empowering women.
Queen Noor brought her message to Judson University's World Leaders Forum Monday at the University's Elgin campus.
Everyone in the world, no matter where they live or what social, economic, religion or ethnic background they have, aspires to have a meaningful life and create new possibilities for their children, Queen Noor said. The way to live a meaningful life is to realize there is something greater than yourself and accept responsibility to one another, she said.
"This is the only path to security, prosperity and peace, but it requires us all to work and serve together," Queen Noor said
