Ardern, who received global acclaim for her handling of the aftermath of a terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, also made it to the annual list.
Londoners were heartbroken to wake up to news of the recent and horrific terror attack in Christchurch, shocked by the callous targeting of innocent civilians for no reason other than their faith. @jacindaardern‘s leadership since the attack has been an inspiration to us all. https://t.co/CcMb3SULSJ
