Angela Merkel

Angela Dorothea Merkel is the current and the first female Chancellor of Germany. In 2007, she was the President of the European Council and chaired the G8, being the second woman in history to do so. She has been twice named the world’s second most powerful person by Forbes magazine. She also won the Time magazine’s “person of the year” in 2015

Her foreign policy has focused on strengthening European cooperation and international trade agreements. She is currently described as the de facto leader of the European Union. Angela Merkel is the youngest German Chancellor since World War 2.

She is very opinionated and often times, it affected her approval ratings. But Angela Merkel isn’t one to back down on what she believes in. She has a huge passion for the unity of Europe

Her determination and consistency in carrying out her duties is the reason she is our WCW for this week.
