On December 3rd, UNICEF inducted pop sensation Katy Perry as their newest Goodwill Ambassador. This invitation-only press event took place at UNICEF House and was moderated by 17-year-old Hannah Godefa, Ethiopia National Goodwill Ambassador, who was accompanied by her proud dad.
The press included youth bloggers, KIDSDAY members, and local NYC students who got an exclusive peak at the #unconditionallyUNICEF video featuring Katy Perry’s trip to Madagascar. Executive Director, Tony Lake, tapped his foot along to the song and commented later, “I was trying very hard not to lip synch”. Below is the video with lyrics inspired by Perry’s work with UNICEF.
Perry commented that being in the public eye enabled her to reach a vast number of people and shine a light on issues that need to be addressed.
