Actress and singer
Along with her major roles in television and movies, Victoria Justice can also add philanthropist to her resume. The actress and recording artist has been a Girl Up Champion since the campaign launched in 2010. Girl Up is an innovative campaign of the United Nations Foundation that gives American girls the opportunity to become global leaders and channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for United Nations programs that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls.
In 2011, Justice joined Girl Up on a trip to Guatemala, hopping on a redeye flight after attending the Video Music Awards and got right to work meeting girls and their families. Now that’s dedication. She was so inspired that she wrote the song “Girl Up.” The music video contains footage from her experience in Guatemala, and was played at concerts during her summer tours. Victoria is a true super star for girls everywhere.
