At just 15, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has created quite a name for herself. Aside from starring in one of the top-rated series of our time, she has collaborated with mega-brands like Converse All-Star to create two different product launches, established her own skincare and makeup line, and is now the youngest ever Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.
Her role with UNICEF is largely focused on raising awareness of the rights of people closest to her: children. This past Wednesday, Bobby Brown was introduced to the UNICEF world by fellow ambassador David Beckham, addressing the Global Summit at United Nations Headquarters to illustrate to members what her role as an ambassador meant to her and how she planned to help the lives of children everywhere.

today was beautiful. i was so grateful to have the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of my idol, Audrey Hepburn. she addressed world leaders as they adopted the UN convention on the Rights of the Child. today was a dream because i joined @unicef to mark the 30th anniversary of the Convention and remind everyone *specifically world leaders* that children's rights matter. today is #WorldChildrensDay and I am v proud to join young people all across the world to ask world leaders to stand WITH us. listen. and make change. protect us and our beautiful planet! there's more work to do. much more. 💙
From educational pursuits to health, Bobby Brown explained that the voices of young people are already demanding the attention of legislators and lawmakers and that all it takes now is a listening ear and continuous support for impassioned young people to demand change in a world that is just as much theirs as anyone else’s.
She also spent a great deal of time emphasizing cyberbullying and the negative impact it has on so many children. Drawing on her own experiences, Bobby Brown gave an emotional testimony to the power behind hurtful words used online and how important it is for people to prioritize this issue.
