Teenage Girl Takes Charge As Finland’s Prime Minister For a Day
16-year-old Aava stepped in as Finland’s PM for a day as a part of the girls take over initiative, that is focusing on girls’ digital empowerment this year
A 16-year-old girl from Finland was handed over charge by Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin to take over her duties for a day. Teenager Aava Murto was given this opportunity by the government as a part of its campaign to promote girls’ rights in the country.
Aava, who actively campaigns on climate change and human rights, was excited to undertake the role of the most important office. She spoke about the need for females to be technologically up to date, adding that they should realise their importance and value themselves as equal to boys.
During the day, the teenager was scheduled to speak with Members of the Parliament (MP) and the Minister for Development and Foreign Trade. While addressing the media at the official building’s stairs after her meeting with the Chancellor of Justice, she said she was having an exciting day.
This initiative is a part of the larger #girlstakeover campaign by Plan International, that gives a chance to young girls around the world to hold a temporary position of charge and share their thoughts about their gender’s empowerment. This year’s theme focused on promoting digital skills and creating more technological avenues for them.
