Lees hieronder de reacties van Leona Lewis en Georgia Arnold, Executive Director van de MTV Staying Alive Foundation.

“It is a great honor to be working with MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation as an ambassador. I’m eager to raise awareness of the ongoing global HIV crisis. By empowering young people with knowledge about the disease – particularly women and girls who are disproportionately affected – we can help treat it and ultimately prevent it altogether.”Leona Lewis

“We’re absolutely thrilled to have the extremely passionate and talented Leona Lewis join our ranks this year. Aside from her awesome voice – which we’ll be hearing later in the year – Leona is deeply committed to improving the lives of young people worldwide and especially those most vulnerable which of course includes adolescent girls. Currently 90% of new infections among adolescents in sub-Saharan Africa occur in girls. Leona’s role as ambassador to the MTV Staying Alive Foundation could not come at a more crucial moment in the fight against HIV/AIDS. We’re really looking forward to working with Leona throughout 2017 to raise awareness of HIV and the devastating impact it continues to have on millions of young people globally.”Georgia Arnold, Executive Director, MTV Staying Alive Foundation
