Singapore gets its first female president ever and she even has her own emoji

Recommended Posts


Singapore now has its first female president ever.

63-year-old Halimah Yacob, a former speaker of parliament, was declared the country's latest president on Wednesday.

She was the only candidate to qualify for the presidency, a largely ceremonial role, which was this year reserved for candidates from the Malay community.

In celebration of her win, Twitter launched a special emoji for her — the first for a female head of state anywhere in the world.

Not gonna lie, it's pretty adorable.
