On staying informed about the planet:
“There”s so much happening around the world, and the only way to be more well versed is to be a global citizen, traveling from one place to another all the time.”
On her work with Plan:
“I”m the global ambassador and I”m visiting Ethiopia and it”s kind of like a web of problems, it”s not simple, we”re trying to work out the ways to solve these problems. It”s kind of a no brainer, but it”s about education. My main work is to get an overview of what”s happening and see how we can help, and also about creating awareness. An educated and fortunate girl in the US or India should definitely be aware of what a girl in Ethiopia has to go through. She has a voice to put out there and should go for it.”
