Queen Rania of Jordan is a leader of women in the Arab world and beyond and is a champion of refugees, especially those fleeing neighboring Syria. Jordan has taken in more than 1.4 million people during the civil war.

As one of PEOPLE’s 25 Women Changing the World celebrated in this week’s issue, Queen Rania writes about refugee swimmer Yusra Mardini, who helped pull a boatload of fellow refugees to safety, and then went on to compete in the Rio Olympics.
