Amal Clooney Reveals Her Role Model Growing Up

Renowned International human rights Lawyer Amal Alamuddin Cloooney has closely worked with many influential bigwigs, not the least of which being her award-winning actor husband, George Clooney. An idol to many, when asked whom she admires the most as a role model revealed that growing up she didn't have to look too far to find an inspiration - she found one in noted journalist, Bariaa Alamuddin, her mother.

During the Q&A session at the Texas Conference for Women, where she was the keynote speaker, she said,

“I think growing up my mother was definitely a role model, she was always a working woman and someone who is independent and cared about her career and cared about being independent but also had balance.”

"She never lost her femininity and she believed the balance was important and that is something that stuck with me,” Clooney added.

She also spoke about women's rights across the world and ended her speech by declaring that all women share a special bond that is exclusive to being a woman. Ending on a hopeful  and inspiring note: “The worst thing that we can do as women is not stand up for each other.  Because if we are united, there is no limit to what we can do.”
