Millie Bobby Brown Named Youngest-Ever UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador

Millie Bobby Brown is officially the youngest-ever UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador!

The 14-year-old Stranger Things star’s appointment will be announced on World Children’s Day at United Nations Headquarters and the Empire State Building on Tuesday (November 20) in New York City.

“It’s a dream come true to become a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, “Millie said. “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, Millie 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, bullying, and poverty.

On World Children’s Day, children around the world will unite for their rights and “take over” key roles in government, entertainment, and business.

As part of the day, UNICEF is asking supporters to raise their voices in solidarity with the most disadvantaged and vulnerable children by helping “turn the world blue” by doing or wearing something blue. ICYMI, check out the short video Millie starred in to kick-start the activation last week!

    Isn’t she a little too young to have all this responsibility thrust on her? She should be enjoying her childhood not feeling the pressure of being an ambassador for anything. I feel sorry for her
