A: Amal Clooney #AToZChallenge

Image Source

Much before she came into the spotlight for marrying one of the most gorgeous and eligible bachelors of Hollywood, Amal Alamuddin, the barrister-at-law was doing a fantastic job in international law and human rights. Born in Lebanon, her name means hope and that is exactly what she is to her clients. Amal learned English by watching TV shows. Having highly educated and ambitious parents, Amal followed their footsteps, but chose law as a subject and graduated with a B.A degree. Today, she is qualified to practice as a lawyer in the United States and the United Kingdom.

In 2014, Amal Alamuddin married George Clooney and became Amal Clooney. While she took his last name, she continued to stand out on her own. The best piece of news on the marriage was a report where they announced that the famous human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin was marrying some actor called George Clooney! Yes, that's who she is. Two babies later, she continues to stand by his side and still follow her course of life.

Her sense in fashion is a stand out too. It is never easy being a part of Hollywood and not succumbing to the bling. But Amal has always had her individualistic sense of style and that's what makes her more special. She is hated by millions for getting a man who had sworn to never marry again to walk down the aisle. George Clooney describes his wife as "most fascinating woman he has ever met".

Amal Clooney today is known for the barrister that she is and not for being someone's wife. She took the side of Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks in his fight against extradition. Constantly fighting for women's rights and against genocide in the Middle east, Amal is also the president of the Clooney Foundation for Justice, which she co-founded with her husband George Clooney in late 2016 to advance justice in courtrooms, communities, and classrooms around the world.

Women like Amal show the world that they can achieve things on their own and not be defined by the men in their lives. Today, she's more famous than her smitten husband and continues to fight for what is right. Amal Alamuddin nee Clooney will continue to be an inspiration to me and many others like me who want to follow their dreams and yet stay grounded.

  2. I quite like her as well. She has carved out a name for herself and is her own person. Luckily, she has waded the Hollywood society and stayed true to her career and wishes.

  4. When George Clooney married Amal, I was like...."Who IS this woman?" I admire the fact that she has her own identity and is not just considered a Hollywood star's wife. I like that about women, who carve a name for themselves and follow their own beliefs.

  5. She is an amazing woman. Indeed an inspiration. It is hard for a woman to be known for who she is especially when she is married to someone famous. But Amal is a great example to be known for who you are.

  12. This is one awe inspiring lady! I don't know if you saw the announcement of George's Life Time Achievement Award by Tina Fey. That was one of the most hilarious yet accurate speeches given to confer the award!
