Millie Bobby Brown Becomes UNICEF’s Youngest Ever Goodwill Ambassador

British Actress Millie Bobby Brown has been named UNICEF’s youngest ever Goodwill Ambassador. At just age 14, Brown is the youngest person ever to have been given such a role. She has been associated with a number of good causes in the past.

For her new role, the Stranger Things actress will advocate for children’s rights and issues affecting the youth, such as lack of education, safe learning spaces, and the impacts of violence, bullying and poverty. Brown said her new appointment is a “dream come true”.

“It’s a huge honour 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,” she was quoted saying.

Since 2016, Brown has been a staunch supporter of UNICEF’s work, and even hosted their 70th anniversary celebrations that year. On her social media platforms, she is extremely vocal about causes such as gender equality and gun violence. “I will speak out for the millions of children and young people whose voices have been silenced for far too long. I will shine a light on the issues that vulnerable children and young people have suffered around the world, including representing them at places where they haven’t yet had a seat at the table,” she said.

She further added, “Most of all, I will make sure children and young people know their rights and I will do everything I can to empower them, to be the change they want to see in the world.” In the past, celebrities such as David Beckham, Priyanka Chopra, Shakira, and others have taken on this role.
