WASHINGTON —
Saudi Arabia's Ambassador to the United States Princess Reema Bint Bandar received an honorary doctorate from Marymount University.

Princess Reema tweeted on Sunday: "It was my absolute honor to receive an honorary doctorate, thank you to the faculty and Dr. Becerra for this special day."



Princess Reema pointed out that Marymount University hosts Saudi students like other American universities.

Princess Reema is the first woman to serve as an ambassador for the country. She was born in Riyadh in 1975. Her father is Prince Bandar Bin Sultan.

Princess Reema grew up in Washington as a result of her father's job as the Kingdom's Ambassador there from 1983 to 2005. She graduated from George Washington University in 1999 with a degree in museum studies and archeological preservation.

Princess Reema received a number of awards and honors, such as Sayidaty Award for Excellence and Creativity in 2018, and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for Creative Sports in 2017.

Forbes Middle East named her one of the most powerful women in the Arab world in 2014. She was awarded the most innovative person in the world by Fast Company in the same year.

She was included in the list of leading global thinkers issued by the prestigious American magazine Foreign Policy in 2014, and she was also chosen to join the World Economic Forum's "Young Global Leaders" program in Davos, Switzerland, for her achievements in the domains of development and leadership.
