Stranger things actress Milly Bobby Brown will now fight and create awareness on children’s rights.

Emmy nominated actress Millie Bobby Brown, 14, has been appointed as a UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador. The new appointment makes Millie the youngest person to ever hold that title. As ambassador, she will be tasked with raising awareness around children’s rights and issues such as violence, poverty, bullying and the lack of education in many areas.

The actress who became the youngest person ever to feature on TIME 100 list of the 100 most influential people in 2018, posted on social media saying that the appointment was a dream come true and that the ride has just begun.

Brown recently starred in a UNICEF commercial alongside Liam Neeson, Dua Lipa and other stars urging everyone to “Go Blue” (wear blue clothing) for World Children’s Day which was marked on November 20th, 2018.

UNICEF has been fighting to raise awareness of areas where children are suffering, such as Syria, Yemen and Nigeria. The United Nations called 2017 a “nightmare year” for children in conflict. In a report, UNICEF described the “shocking scale” of harm that the children had faced within a year.

Brown is best known for her role as Eleven in “Stranger Things,” the popular Netflix sci-fi series. Its third season is expected in 2019.

Closer to home, 13-year-old Kenyan acrobat Wendy Waeni was also recently appointed as a UNICEF ambassador.
