Lebanese pop star Nancy Ajram has been appointed a goodwill ambassador for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), a UN official said on Thursday.”We are delighted to welcome Nancy Ajram to UNICEF,” Sigrid Kaag, UNICEF regional director for the Middle East and North Africa, said in Beirut.

“Goodwill ambassadors help focus the world’s attention on the needs of children and can act as agents of change,” she told journalists.

Ajram, 26, is the second UNICEF regional ambassador after Egyptian actor Mahmud Kabil, who has held the title since 2003.

“Being appointed UNICEF’s goodwill ambassador to the Middle East and North Africa is the biggest dream come true, the best thing that’s happened to me as an artist, a person and a mother,” Ajram told reporters.

“This is the first time I feel that I’m doing something that’s for others, that I’m using my fame to help others — to help children.”

Ajram won the 2008 World Music Award for best-selling Middle Eastern artist. She has been compared to the young Britney Spears and is well-known for her children’s songs.

She is married and has one daughter.
