Leona Lewis Named Goodwill Ambassador

British beauty Leona Lewis has been named Goodwill Ambassador for UK-Japan 2008 at the nomination ceremony in Tokyo, Japan on Tuesday. The 23-year-old singing sensation was joined by Dave Spector, the American television personality in Japan.

UK-Japan 2008 has been conducted by the British embassy in Japan to mark the 150th anniversary of the Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Amity and Commerce. The campaign showcases British culture in three categories: art, science and creative industry.

Leona said, “I’m really honored to become a Goodwill Ambassador for UK-Japan 2008. I recently visited Japan for the first time and I loved it. I’m very much looking forward to exploring such an amazing country further as well as supporting UK-Japan 2008. I’m very happy to have an opportunity to understand more about the wonderful country.”
