Being appointed @unwomen Goodwill Ambassador in front of an amazing crowd of tens of thousands in Southern Africa where my passion and heritage stems from, was a deeply profound moment for me. I will seek to assure that She Is Equal in our world by doing everything I can to amplify the voices of women who work tirelessly to bring about justice and rights for women and girls globally, sometimes at risk of their very lives. I am honored to give voice to their efforts, and I am honored to join the UN Women family.
