“Celebrity Edge Godmother, the news is out”
The news is out about who is going to be the new Celebrity Edges Godmother.
Malala Yousafzai will be the godmother of the Celebrity Edge, a ship due in late 2018.
Yousafzai is a 19-year-old Pakistani woman who received the Nobel Peace Prize for her advocacy of girls’ education. She came to prominence for writing a blog about the subject as an 11-year-old living in a Taliban-occupied area of her country.
In 2012, she was severely injured and nearly died when a Taliban gunman shot her on a bus. Since then, she has become a prominent education activist. She founded the nonprofit Malala Fund and in 2013 co-authored “I am Malala,” an international bestseller.
In 2014, she was announced as the co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and was the youngest recipient ever at 17 years old.
As well as naming Yousafzai godmother, Celebrity announced a two-year partnership to support and promote the Malala Fund.
“Partnering with Malala Fund was a natural fit as we share the same passion and commitment to an incredible cause,” Celebrity CEO and president Lisa Lutoff-Perlo said.
“Malala is an inspiration and a voice of hope,” said Richard Fain, chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd, Celebrity’s parent company. “This young woman is on a powerful mission, and we support it 100 percent.”
The Celebrity Edge is now available to book for forthcoming voyages, being a Celebrity fan myself I am looking forward to helping my customers book their dream cruise.
