Canadian actress, Mackenzie Davis, recently starred in Terminator: Dark Fate and best known for her roles in Halt and Catch Fire and Black Mirror’s award winning, San Junipero.
Behind this success is a driven, hard-working and ambitious woman who didn’t let anyone stand in her way. We’re overjoyed to have the support of Mackenzie as One Girl Can’s ambassador, championing women’s education and independence.
As someone who has been actively engaged and supporting the organization since the very beginning, she is very aware of the very real impact One Girl Can has.
"An enormous amount of research supports the idea that education is the only way to break the cycle of poverty and oppression,” she says. “Educating girls, challenging the idea of what role a woman holds and what she can achieve – this is a way to empower a neglected demographic to reshape our world."
In her role as our ambassador, she wants to help tell the story and make an even bigger impact on moving the needle forward on gender equality.
"I’m eager to talk publicly about the girls involved in One Girl Can and to give their stories a broader reach. My goal is to raise awareness about the work and ambitions of One Girl Can and to get more people committed to supporting girls education."
