TIME Magazine has named their 2015 Person of the Year and for the first time since 1927 it’s a woman. Her name is Angela Merkel and she’s the Chancellor of Germany. Merkel is only the fourth woman in TIME history to be named Person of the Year.

Merkel has been praised for her outstanding leadership, specifically bailing Greece out of bankruptcy, accepting Syrian refugees and deploying troops to fight against ISIS. “Her political style was not to have one; no flair, no flourishes, no charisma, just a survivor’s sharp sense of power and a scientist’s devotion to data,” wrote Nancy Gibbs.

Her slogan for the year has been “Wir schaffen das” that means “We can do this.”

“You can agree with her or not, but she is not taking the easy road. Leaders are tested only when people don’t want to follow. For asking more of her country than most politicians would dare, for standing firm against tyranny as well as expedience and for providing steadfast moral leadership in a world where it is in short supply, Angela Merkel is TIME’s Person of the Year.”

Other candidates for Person of the Year included Donald Trump and Caitlyn Jenner, among others.
