Characteristics That Make Her a Leader

She was committed to helping area's that needed buildings, foods, or medicines. Diana helped them by donating her time which not many people do, and her money.
She showed kindness and understanding to those with other diseases instead of shunning them like their community did!
Diana had great charimisa that she spread to all the people she met. In the developing countries she was able to empower others by improving their self esteem.
List of Accomplishments
Princess Diana succeeded in making the world a better place for a large amount of people, mainly in Africa.
Diana was an active supporter in the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, which have hurt many along with killing a lot of children.
She helped raise AIDS awareness and showed the world AIDS victims need to be treated with the same respect and kindness that others receive.
She broke the HIV barrier by being photographed by the press on a mans bed whom had HIV and the picture was sent around the world. This proved that you can be near people with HIV and not contract it.
Princess Diana Frances Mountbatten-Windsor was born on July 1, 1961 near Sandringham, England. When she was little her parents divorced and her father had custody of her and her siblings. She went to college in Switzerland and early on realized she loved working with young children. Diana got a job as a kindergarten teacher at the Young England School, which she loved. A few years later she married Prince Charles. On July 29, 1981, the wedding ceremony was broadcast worldwide, and was considered, "The wedding of the century." On June 21, 1982 she had her first son, Prince William Arthur Philip Louis. He was joined later by Henry(also known as Harry) Charles Albert David on September 15, 1984. Being a princess was not all that great. While she was married to Prince Charles, she struggled severely with depression and bulimia. The couple were not getting along so they filed for divorce in December of 1992. Diana donated her time and efforts to helping kids in Africa, and removing land mines from Angola. Sadly on August 30, 1997 she was in a severe car crash after being chased by the paparazzi and died in the hospital, a few hours later.
"They say its better to be poor and happy than to be rich and miserable, but how about a compromise like moderately rich and a little moody?"
Diana first showed the world how horrible AIDS is really is. At this time people still thought you could contract it by touching someone who has it but you can't. To show the world she sat on a man's bed whom had AIDS and held his hand.
The busy Princess also brought to many peoples attention the use of land mines. Land mines were a serious problem because during wars people would put them in the ground so when enemies step on them it blows them up. Since there is no way to remove them many young children have stepped on them and died. She went to Angola which is the most heavily mined city in the world, with a team and disabled over 5,000 land mines!
Another thing Diana did as charity work was feed hungry children. Its one thing to donate money, but another is to go and spoon out food for them. Diana went down to Zimbabwe and spooned out corn, peanut, and bean stew to almost 1,200 children, under a blazing hot sun, who would normally go hungry.
"I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that."
"Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you."
"Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society. It is a goal and an essential part of my life - a kind of destiny. Whoever is in distress can call on me. I will come running wherever they are."
Princess Diana's life wasn't as glamorous as it sounds. Even though she divorced her husband she still was able to make the world a better place. She was known as the "peoples princess" because she was constantly doing things to help the community and those in need. Diana was a great leader in philanthropy and helping those in under developed countries.
"When you are happy you can forgive a great deal."
