Millie Bobby Brown: "Young people don't want to be talked about. We want to do the talking"



UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Millie Bobby Brown addressed the issue of online bullying. She said, “I am convinced that social media doesn’t have to be a place of fear, bullying and harassment. It can bring people together. It can be a place of love and support.”

Brown continued, “somewhere in the world right now, a teenager girl is being bullied online. She is scared, she’s vulnerable, she feels alone. My message to her is this: you are not alone, there are people who care about you and there are people who would listen if you reach out for help.”

Echoing her peer Greta Thunberg on climate change, Brown said “young people like her are shouting for the world leaders to hear, to listen and to act.”

She encouraged children in the audience, “every one of you here today can be the loud speaker that turns our voices into real change, into policies, programmes, laws and investments that keep children safe, that makes our world a better, healthier, stronger place for all.”
