Following my award win at the United Nations Headquarters in NYC, as one of the last acts of widely-beloved outgoing President Mary E. Singletary (who also awarded me with my Distinguished International Humanitarian Youth Leadership Award) I was sworn in as Ambassador for the oldest women’s organization in the country, The National Council Of Women Of The United States (NCWUS).
Joining the ranks of notable leaders such as the first NCWUS Vice President Susan B. Anthony, I represent the youth contingent of one of the U.N.’s most prominent NGO entities. The United Nations is a summit of ambassadors from various states and special interest groups, and to be a face and voice of the ideals of such a historic and important organization means so much to me. In today’s fast-paced digital world of social media, the public is demanding more and more that their voices be heard and addressed by a “real person” who understands the unique and ever-evolving digital era. The Milennials are now more active than ever in all areas such as consumerism, politics and certainly activism, however many young people have expressed disconnect between themselves/their concerns and institutions such as the United Nations, where their voices could be represented.
That is where I come in, as I work alongside our new President who is a luminary, author and life coach, the honorable Saideh Brown who penned the book “Courage To Climb”- she is a personal friend and always full of great advice and positive energy. NCWUS is a wonderful place where we champion the messages of equality, women’s and minority rights, and also assistance for anyone who needs help in the way of human rights. Combining my lifelong affinity for public service and my ability to connect with people across a vast spectrum of cultural, socioeconomic and generational levels plus my global fan base, I strive to be a positive change in the world and a vessel for my generation. I may not look like your stereotypical ambassador however that is fitting as I truly am unique- I am authentic and I am without any agenda other than to make the world a better place and offer support to those in need. I am perhaps what is needed in the U.N. as I feel I break barriers of bias in age, appearance, gender, ethnicity and other areas as a biomedical researcher-turned-model-turned U.N. Ambassador I have no precedent. Therefore I can offer a brand new perspective and bridge the gap. Along that vein of thinking, at NCWUS we serve to aid the community and the United Nations member states, and by doing so serve the world at large.
