Media-favorite Ana Ivanovic has become a UNICEF National Ambassador for Serbia. The world No.5 will be inaugurated at a special ceremony in Belgrade next week, and will take a special interest in the fields of education and child protection.
The 19-year-old Ivanovic is delighted by the invitation: “This is one of the greatest honors I’ve ever received, and I’m going to do my best to support all the great work that UNICEF does, both in Serbia and worldwide.
“I love children, and I relish this opportunity to help them in some small way. I’m looking forward to supporting UNICEF’s ‘child-friendly schools’ concept. It’s about valuing children as people, not just learners, and making absolutely sure that the environment is best suited to allow them to develop their talent to the full.”
Part of Ana’s job will include visiting schools in Serbia, and she is looking forward to going into the classroom and meeting many kids.
Note: Ivanovic has already donated CAN$11,000 to a UNICEF charity last month. (source: The Ana Ivanovic website)
