Angela Merkel is one of the most powerful women of the world and the first woman to have achieved such high ranks in the German politics. Her power and charisma is clearly visible from her status and say in the politics of her country. Unlike actors, singers and other celebrities, she has worked really hard to meet up new people and do something good for people of her country other than entertainment.
Have a look at the story of this German woman!
Angela Dorothea Merkel is a German politician who was born on 17th July 1954. She is a daughter of a Lutheran pastor and teacher and grew up in rural area north of Berlin. She studied physics at the University of Leipzig and earned a doctorate in 1978. She has worked as a chemist from 1978-1990 at the Central Institute for Physical Chemistry, Academy of Sciences.

Whoever decides to dedicate their life to politics knows that earning money isn’t the top priority.

I feel sorry sometimes for these sportsmen and women who put in just as much effort as the footballers. For example, athletes train at least as hard as footballers but have to be happy if they can earn enough to finance a decent education.
