Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has become the youngest UNICEF ambassador ever.
The actor, who plays the extremely powerful but emotionally vulnerable Eleven in the hit Netflix television series, has been named the newest Goddwill Ambassador for the worldwide charity. This makes her the youngest person to ever be given that role.
As an ambassador for the charity, Brown will raise global awareness regarding children’s rights and issues around the world. CNN reports that Brown spoke about the position earlier this week, saying, “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 sear at the table and most of all, I will make sure children and young people know their rights.”
Brown will next appear in Godzilla: King of the Monsters alongside Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Kyle Chandler, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds and Zhang Ziyi. Brown will also appear in the upcoming third season of Stranger Things on Netflix.
