Emmy-nominated actress, Millie Bobby Brown, 14, was announced as UNICEF’s youngest-ever Goodwill Ambassador on World Children’s Day 2018.

In her role as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Brown will use her global platform to help raise awareness of children’s rights and issues affecting youth, such as lack of education, safe places to play and learn, and the impact of violence, bullying and poverty. Brown has supported UNICEF’s work since 2016, hosting its 70th anniversary celebrations at the United Nations, championing the inaugural World Children’s Day in 2017 and launching UNICEF’s #Endviolence youth poll earlier this year.

Brown is best known for her performance as the iconic "Eleven" in the Netflix series Stranger Things, for which she garnered international attention, critical praise and awards recognition for her performances in Season 1 and 2. Brown has received two individual Emmy Award nominations, as well as two individual Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, for her work in the series. Born in Spain to British parents and raised globally, Brown has been able to captivate viewers with her engaging performances at such a young age.

In May 2019, Brown will make her feature film debut in the highly anticipated Godzilla: King of the Monsters. She is also attached to produce and star in the franchise series The Mysteries of Enola Holmes, based on the popular Nancy Springer book series of the same name. She will star in the title role as the younger sister of famed Detective, Sherlock Holmes, who proves to be a highly capable detective in her own right.

Earlier this year, Brown was featured as one of TIME magazine’s TIME 100 most influential people. She is currently the youngest person ever to be honored on the prestigious list. Brown has also been featured in Variety's 2016, 2017 and 2018 “Young Hollywood Impact” reports, and in 2016, the year that Stranger Things premiered, Brown was named the #1 "Breakout Star" of 2016 by IMDB.

“It’s a dream come true to become a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador,” said Millie. “It’s a huge honor to join such an impressive list of people who have supported UNICEF over the years. I am looking forward to meeting as many children and young people as I can, hearing their stories, and speaking out on their behalf.”
