Supermodel Naomi Campbell Was Named Global Ambassador for Youth

British model and activist Naomi Campbell joined the international development organization Queen's Commonwealth Trust (QCT) as a global ambassador to support the cause of the young leaders, Reuters reports.

The organization, created in 2018, supports young people who are trying to make a difference in the communities they come from in several sectors, including health, environment, and education.

Through external partnerships and connecting the network of young entrepreneurs to various opportunities, training courses, and funding programs, QCT aims to help strengthen a generation that makes substantial and sustainable changes around the globe.

On the occasion of the 2022 anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, the organization is launching a fund called "Platinum Jubilee Fund for Young Leaders" to provide more support to 18–35-year-old entrepreneurs across the 54 countries of the Commonwealth.

Naomi Campbell will promote the achievements of the new generation

As QCT Platinum Jubilee Global Ambassador, Naomi Campbell will help drive the organization's fundraising campaign as well as promote the achievements of young leaders.

The announcement that the British supermodel will be the ambassador of this program was made on the eve of London Fashion Week, at a special event hosted by the Cafe Royal Hotel in London, where Naomi Campbell gave a speech of thanks, along with Christopher Kelly, the CEO of Queen's Commonwealth Trust.

"Regardless of where you are from or where you are now, there are young leaders within your community doing amazing work. Sometimes they are not seen and some of them may not even see themselves as ‘leaders’ yet, but they all deserve our support, and access to education and resources," said the 51-year-old British supermodel.

"I have been doing the work with empowering young people for over 25 years. This is something very close to my heart and I will continue to do everything I can to uplift the next generation, so they can create a better future for their communities", the star added.

Naomi Campbell has a special mission

As we all know, Naomi Campbell is one of the world's most renowned supermodels. She was the first black woman to appear on the covers of French and British "Vogue" and the first black model to appear on the cover of "Time" magazine.

Besides being one of the most famous celebrities in the fashion world, Naomi Campbell is also known for her charitable work, especially in Africa. She started since the time of the former South African President Nelson Mandela, who named her "honorary granddaughter" for her activist work.

Naomi Campbell founded "Fashion For Relief" in 2005, which organizes fashion shows to raise money for charitable causes. Among the most important causes were the raising of funds to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina and those affected by Typhoon Haiyan, which affected the central Pacific Ocean at the end of 2013.
