Angelina Jolie seems to be non-stop in gaining achievements each year and these achievements do not only focus on acting in Hollywood but also in directing as well as in charitable works. Jolie seems to be doing great in everything that she does and she doesn’t stop in doing something good for herself and for others.
After almost a decade of promoting refugee causes around the world, at long last, Angelina herself has been promoted to be one. Angelina Jolie was elevated by the United Nations refugee agency from being a goodwill ambassador to a special envoy. This new role given to the Hollywood star is not a typical role where he can easily take and retake the scenes once she commits mistakes because this is not the usual scene that we see from her. Her new role will help us see her representing the organization at the diplomatic level to governments and diplomats.
According to the spokesman Adrian Edwards, it is the first time the U.N. refugee agency has named a special envoy. For those familiar for such title, it is usually intended for career diplomats or retired politicians and a Hollywood star like Angelina Jolie is not the one who can get the citation that easy. However, the actress was really grateful.
“Her work does go substantially beyond what we would typically see as being the normal role of a goodwill ambassador,” Edwards told the reporters in Geneva. “I don’t think you need a rocket scientist to see the benefits that she is bringing in terms of the attention that she is getting for the plight of the world are displaced.” Because of this, does it mean that we won’t be seeing more of Angelina Jolie in movies this year?
