SIDS 2014 Delegate Ripeka Reiri Named 2015 UNICEF NZ Youth Ambassador

We're really excited to share that one of our delegates to SIDS 2014, Ripeka Reiri, has been named one of UNICEF New Zealand's Youth Ambassadors for 2015.

Here's what Ripeka had to say about being selected for the role:

"My keen interest in child rights has found a voice in the youth initiatives I participate in.  It is so important for young people to be aware of the issues facing children in New Zealand today.  I look forward to working with other youth and being part of the driving force for change within our communities."

Congratulations, Ripeka!  We look forward to hearing more about your ambassadorship as the year goes on.
