Jennifer Wright

Jennifer is a New Zealander studying Finance at Stern School of Business at New York University. After high school, she took a year off and began volunteering with UNICEF. There, she was selected for one of only 5 UNICEF New Zealand Youth Ambassadors for that year.

In this role, she has represented UNICEF and New Zealand youth on a national stage. She still regularly attends or speaks at events such as youth conferences and other notable events such as Prince Harry's New Zealand reception.

In her time as a UNICEF Youth Ambassador, she has worked with a team to create the official New Zealand shadow report to the United Nations. This is a document that represents the nation's youth and contains the hopes and opinions of over 1200 young Kiwis. UNICEF NZ recognised Jennifer's contribution to this project in 2016 by nominating her for New Zealander of the Year.

In her second year as a Youth Ambassador, she worked with UNICEF NZ to found UNICEF Youth For Change. This is a national network of youth clubs which now has over 500 active members in 24 high school and university clubs around the country. She currently directs this network's growth, events and engagement.
