It takes a woman to win the first YouTube Visionary award and a Royal one at that

LatinaLista — Among the many things that were accomplished in the Obama-Biden campaign was just how effective Internet technology is. Without going into all the ways the Democratic campaign utilized the Internet, let’s just say that it is opening more doors than ever thought possible.

Jordan’s Queen Rania
One of those opportunities is by way of online video. With sites like YouTube, people can reach out to each other regardless of neighborhood, country or culture. The folks at YouTube recognized that people can use their platform to break down barriers of all kinds and create positive social change.
That’s why they decided to create the YouTube Visionary award. The inaugural award went to a Royal recipient — literally. Queen Rania of Jordan was awarded the first-ever YouTube Visionary award for her site, Queen Rania on YouTube, to help break down Arab stereotypes.
A quick look at her spoof of Letterman’s Top Ten reasons as to why she started her site reveals a down-to-earth Queen who also knows the power of Internet technology.
The Queen serves as an inspiration and an example to all who are trying to find a way to make positive differences in this world with nothing more than a desire to fulfill a mission, a message — and a camera.
