Leadership Development
Key Leadership Qualities
Angelina Jolie Voight was born on June 4, 1975, in Los Angeles, California. She is well known in Hollywood for her acting and modeling. Angelina was no stranger to the film industry since she was the daughter of Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight and also having one of the sexiest men in Hollywood as her husband, Brad Pitt. Besides her career in acting, Angelina demonstrates great courage and leadership through her openness, using her public build to draw attention to issues that warrant public search. She is represented as a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as a Goodwill Ambassador, and in this role she conducted more than 40 field visits around the world. (The UNHCR is authorized to lead and conduct international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide.)

Angelina Jolie was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR in august of 2001. Her interest in humanitarian began back in 2000 when she went to Cambodia to film the adventure movie, "Tomb Raider." She said that meeting the people she met in Cambodia “opened your eyes”. The suffering of the people in Cambodia caused Angelina to contact the UNHCR to find out how she could help. Her first overseas mission was to Sierra Leone and Tanzania for 18 days. She continued to visit more and more suffering countries and not long after, she was announced a UNHCR GoodWill Ambassador.
Angelina is very understanding about certain situations while taking on her missions. She sees how these people are treated and she tries to understand how they must be feeling. She tries to put herself in their shoes.
She is very determined to try and get these refugees a safe and stable home. She is willing to do anything to help them and she devotes all her time in to that.

In 2003, with Brad Pitt she created the Jolie-Pitt Foundation named after adopted son, Maddox who was born in cambodia, which helps with aiding humanitarian causes worldwide.
She also owns another co-partnered foundation, the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, educating those affected by man-made or natural disasters.
Then there's her work with Kids in Need of Defense, a movement of law firms, corporate law departments, and volunteers committed to providing legal counsel to unaccompanied immigrant children.
As you can tell, Angelina has made a incredibly huge impact on society. Of course, because of all her work, in 2005 she was awarded the Global Humanitarian Award by the United Nations Association of the USA and the Business Council for the United Nations for her work with refugees.
Whenever Angelina visit a new location, she is very respectful towards the refugees and their culture. For example, when she went to iraqi, she should them much appreciation for allowing her into their homes and was respectful for their religion.
Angelina is beyond admirable in her courage for visiting highly violent areas. Many places she goes, she is seen as a threat and a target so she does risk her life every time she visits a new country
Angelina Jolie is decisive, courageous, and bold. She tends to always want action, even when waiting for an appropriate time to fix a problem or letting things alone to resolve themselves. She absolutely cannot tolerate being inactive or even patient about getting what she wants. Angelina Jolie feels that it is up to her to take the advantage and she goes after her goal or desire very aggressively. She has passionate beliefs and will fight for them when challenged and is willing to dedicate a great deal of her energy and force to an important cause. Angelina Jolie has a positive, "can-do" attitude and she tackles life's challenges with pleasure. She is self-confident and has a strong willed to see how much she can do and how far she can go. Angelina wants to keep on going and do bigger things, which makes her very enthusiastic about new projects. She makes a good leader, inspiring courage and confidence in others.
Not only does Angelina give her heart and soul to the world, but she has given three adopted children a loving home and education and is the biological mother of another three. Angelina is not a typical celebrity. She does not wear name brand clothes every time she steps out the house, she rarely wears make-up, showing off her natural beauty and she does not take anything she has for granted. Angelina Jolie is more than a world-class beauty, she is a world-class citizen. Angelina is a celebrity actually worthy of celebration. She is both honored and humble and her generosity for the people and causes she cares for is legendary.
