Model Answer:

Over the last two decades, the ability to create influence and power has evolved remarkably- and this is especially true for women. The name “Brigitte Bierlein” has recently been listed as one of the foremost powerful woman leaders who is leading on the world stage to redefine traditional power structures and forge lasting impact in the history of the female leaders. She is an Austrian jurist who served as interim chancellor of Austria from June 2019 to January 2020. Between January 2018 and June 2019, she served as President of the Constitutional Court, the first woman to hold the position. For her visionary leadership quality, I like her very much.

She also was the advocate general of the Procurators Office from 1990 to 2002, and a member of the executive board of the International Association of Prosecutors from 2001 to 2003. Bierlein established an important platform for gender equality in Austria. She also was the advocate general of the Procurators Office from 1990 to 2002, and a member of the executive board of the International Association of Prosecutors from 2001 to 2003.

Chancellor Brigitte Bierlein, as a political leader, is outstanding and her political activities are easily noticeable. She was able to meet many people from a wide range of areas, all of whom would represent the depth of diverse Austrian society. She established an important platform for gender equality in Austria. She wishes to work for her country as much as she could to ensure a successful government. In her speech, she said that the greatest thanks go to you, my dear fellow citizens, to serve you in this special position is the greatest honour of my life.

I like Brigitte Bierlein because she seems to be a very fascinating and self-regulating leader who understands the lusty, muscular and competent world of politics much better than the other coexisting leaders. She is not afraid to take unpopular decisions to protect the principles of humanity. Finally, I like her because her leadership offers help and unity to the world community instead of separating them over some lame misunderstanding.
