Millie Bobby Brown named Unicef Goodwill Ambassador
The appointment – marked on World Children’s Day at United Nations Headquarters and the Empire State Building in New York – makes the 14-year-old Unicef’s youngest-ever Goodwill Ambassador.
“It’s a dream come true to become a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador,” said Brown. “It’s a huge honor to join such an impressive list of people who have supported Unicef over the years. I am looking forward to meeting as many children and young people as I can, hearing their stories, and speaking out on their behalf.”
In her role as Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, the British star of Stranger Things will use her global platform to help raise awareness of children’s rights and issues affecting youth, such as lack of education, safe places to play and learn, and the impact of violence,
