Whenever we hear about Saudi Arabia or women in the Middle East, we always think that the women there are oppressed and they have no life. It is believed that the women in Saudi Arabia are given restricted amount of rights as compare to the women in other parts of the world.
Ameerah Al Taweel, a 33-year-old princess from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has set an example not only for the women in Saudi Arabia but for the whole world. She is doing a lot to make this world a better place to live. Here is something about this beautiful princess that many people didn’t know.
The Saudi Princess is confident, intelligent, bold and beautiful. She is a woman with a purpose! A perfect package of what we call beauty with brains.
She spends most of her time dealing with the humanitarian crises in her home country, Saudi Arabia, and all around the world. The princess has visited more than 70 countries around the globe to solve many problems.
Ameerah can often be found helping people whenever there is a poverty crises or any natural disaster. Some of her social work includes giving shelter in West Africa and helping the flood victims in Pakistan.

As stated above, Ameerah is bold and confident and she was one of the first women in Saudi Arabia who refused to wear Abayas (Long and loose Islamic dress that is used to hide the whole body). She chose to wear European clothes, with a touch of traditional style, instead.
It is a renowned fact that driving for women in Saudi Arabia is banned. But Princess Ameerah drives a car. She got her higher education in the US and has a degree in Business Administration.
