AIS Student Is Appointed Children’s Ambassador To The United Nations

Published by Radhika Puri

Grade 4 student, Tyra Sioni has been appointed as a United Nations children’s ambassador following her winning gold in the Voices of Future Generation’s (VoFG) Children’s Book Series. Tyra focused her book on a subject very close to her heart; discrimination towards women in her place of birth Papua New Guinea.  

To celebrate her win, Tyra was invited to attend the VoFG Children’s Summit in New York where she helped finalise a statement on the Declaration of Children and the World’s Sustainable Development Goals. Her book was also launched at the summit, and she gave short speech on the issues highlighted in the story.

Tyra comments, “You can write a story too and maybe go to New York one day. However, you have to write about an important issue that can make a difference to people in the world.”  

We are extremely proud of the achievements of all of our students. Tyra has clearly demonstrated commitment to addressing the needs of our world through her love of literacy, and we are sure she is an inspiration to her fellow students.
