Dear Queen Rania;
When a prominent minister of the Evangelical church in US, born in Jafa (Palestinian citizen) proclaimed to me: "You must design for HRH The King of Jordan! Do you know him?"- naturally, I responded that I do not. "We must change that." he replied. It is therefore my pleasure to share this website with you, and offer my interior design skills for your all of your properties, jet and yacht as well. I remain, yours humbly.- Ron

Dear Your Majesty,

I saw you at LeWeb in France and I really appreciated what you said, the cause you defends and the fact that you also use the web to make things change.

I do believe that people can make a difference if they act together, and that is why I'm here.

During my scolarship in 2001, I had an idea to raise money for financing human projects, which I shared with my closest friends. It happened to be a bit difficult for me to handle by myself, more like a naive dream, so I put it aside.

But I kept thinking about it, and today I definitely think that it might not be a waste of time to have a deeper look at it. I've grown up, my idea too.

So I would be honored to discuss the idea with you, because I believed in what you said, and I somehow wants to help.

Thank you for your time and your energy.

Dear Your Majesty Queen Rania,

It's my great pleasure to write to you on behalf of the International Pharmaceutical Students' Federation "IPSF".

My name is Mariam Al-Bess, from Jordan, I am the Regional Relations Officer for the IPSF Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office "EMRO"

I would love to give you a brief introduction about IPSF and its role in improving pharmacy profession all over the world.

IPSF International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation, was founded in 1949, is the leading international advocacy organization of pharmacy students promoting improved public health through provision of information, education, networking, and a range of publication and professional activities. IPSF represents more than 350,000 pharmacy students and recent graduates in over 70 countries worldwide.

This year we were so lucky to establish the first Eastern Mediterranean office in the region that will represent IPSF, and its
Associations in this region, our first meeting as the members of the executive board took place in Alexandria, Egypt.

How it all started?

Locally I work with the Jordan Pharmaceutical Students' Association JPSA.
Who are we?
“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity" Albert Einstein
We are a team of enthusiastic pharmacy students who believe in a change!
JPSA was established in 2007, when we got accepted as full members in IPSF, since then we started to explore what pharmacy is all about all around the globe!
Being a part on IPSF family, I got the chance to travel, and meet different pharmacy students from around the world; we did projects in public heath, charity events, we exchanged experiences and took decisions!

Exploring all this, the thing that really concerned me was how could I bring all this to my hometown? How can I be useful in my country? And would it be possible that my colleagues and friends, in Jordan, get the same chance I had?

This was where we started working on small projects in Jordan, to be as much as possible useful to our society, and tried to bring the best of what we got from the international experience to our beloved Jordan.

*The big challenge?

Finally we did it,
This year we won the opportunity, to host the first IPSF EMRO regional symposium, here in Jordan, this means that we will face a lot of challenges to make it happen, but on the other hand it means we already started to make a difference!

This symposium will gather pharmacy students from all around the Eastern Mediterranean region, and the world, they will come to Jordan, to talk about leadership, future, and how can we be helpful and useful to our countries and the planet!

Education and knowledge is our key to successful future, we believe that success won’t come to us; we have to go to it!

It’s our chance to show the world what we can do, and what potentials we have! Adding to all that, all the participants will get the opportunity to explore Jordan, and its hospitality, helping us to send the message of peace, love and creativity to the whole world!

We are young students who are passionate energetic and concerned about our future, and our important role.

As you always inspire us to take the lead, and start the change even if it is small!
You showed us how impossible could become beautiful and real, your passion and hard work strengthen us when we feel weak and lost!

Your Majesty Queen Rania, we dare to dream and we believe that what we are doing is something different; it will be a great pleasure for us to know if you may be interested in this event in any way?

Thank you for your time,

Yours in IPSF,
Mariam Al-Bess

Your Majesty Queen Rania:

Am a physician who graduated from the inveristy of jordan in 2005.Am now in Detroit/Michigan doing my Pediatrics residency training.Am almost done for this is my 3rd year of residency and then am moving to children's hospital of Los angeles to specialize in Blood disorders and Cancers for Children.
Ive been reading alot about incidents where Child abuse was suspected and the last case that just happenned within the last couple of months about abdullah who died because of repeated Head trauma and he presented to one of our Emergencies with seizures and it made me think about the way we handle this problem in Jordan.
Most of the children who end up having severe disabilities ot even deaths from abuse presented at some point to emergencies with a complaint of fractures or burns that are not well explained.And the sytem here in the states is very well organzied that any patient who presents to the ED or even stays in the inpatient side of a hospital for a trauma or a fracture or falling down staris or even beds in case of babies gets reviewd in the morning by a specialized team.And its not that complicated to create this team.All we need is a nurse and a physician who has some experience for years with pediatrics.And the way we can do this sytem is in the morning when this nurse comes she reviews all admission that happenned on the night before and thats easy to get from the admission office and then she filters those to any un-explained falls or fractures or anything that is suspicious for her or where the story does not fit the presentation and that brings the number down again a handful of cases which is rounded on witha physician and that takes only a couple of hours to ask more about the history and the mechanism os injry.
If anything is suspicious the team should keep the patient and do further work up including a skeletal survey to look for any old injuries and sometimes an eye exam to look for any retinal hemorrhages and sometimes here we file a complaint to the state.

So i think what am saying that is we have this team which you can already use the employees in the hospital so we dont have to hire somebody extra we can make a big difference in picking some child abuse cases early on and early intervention can make a big difference.
So if your interested your majesty in this idea please email me back and i can give more infomation and litereture review about this idea..

Thank you so much your majesty again for the all the hard work your doing in this field.

Godspeed my Queen:
I will be making every effort in my power to assist with your vision; education is paramount to making our World a safer place for all ---from young children to oppressed people of all ages, genders and creeds.

Glad you opened this space. I saw you on CNN and immediately gravitated towards your message. I previously worked on a prime time series for the "Discovery Channel" where I had to research what the world would be like 30-50 years from now. Rapid and profound progress has torn down our most significant institutions and unveiled, often times, disguised ailments of societies. I agree our most fundamental institution is education and that there is a disparity between the private sector and the education sector. For education to take us into this future we can no longer grasp, we must view education through a new lens and yield the 19th century Industrial model in which it stands today. There is a whole universe that we have explored outside of us. Time has come to explore that universe within...

Queen Rania,
I have long admired Queen Noor and the late King, but I have a new found admiration for you and the efforts you are making in different areas. I hope to travel to Jordan this year as part of a "teaching abroad" program. It is been a goal of mine to see your country, experience its culture and help where I can. I would be very honored to volunteer in any of your programs while I am there. Peace be with you and your family and your country! Cyndi

I hope there are special rewards for 1st joiners. And I look forward to hear thoughts from others as well on all those achievements. I might be still attached to the previous website but this is so lively and full of beat.
