Emma Watson: "I can't imagine anything more exciting"

She may not be a wizard in real life, but just like her Harry Potter character Hermione Granger actress Emma Watson has a heart of gold and a brain to match, and she was recently appointed as a a UN Women’s Global Ambassador! The 24-year-old actress completed her degree at Brown University last month and is now part of the UN at just 24-years-old. Congratulations Emma!

"Being asked to serve as [a] UN Women's Goodwill Ambassador is truly humbling," she said.
