Become a leader!
Girls and young women are important champions for a more just, sustainable and equal world. It benefits us all to have more young women, in all their diversity, representing us when making decisions for the future, but data shows that women are underrepresented at all levels of decision-making worldwide.
Ambassador for a Day exists to empower young women with the skills they need to become our future leaders. Every year we invite 20 women to our Embassy for a day of mentorship, training and workshops.
The competition is open to all young women - regardless of their background - who are resident in Germany and aged between 16-19 years old.
Applications are open now and close at 4pm on 11 January 2023.
Hear from some of our previous winners...
Ronja, from Sachsen-Anhalt
It's never too late to submit your idea! It's really key to talk about a topic that is important to you and affects or concerns the world around you. Think about a daily issue that you face and want to solve. Structure your video well and make it easier to understand!
If you win, you get to meet the other winners and get to know each other. You also get to meet the British Ambassador and explore the embassy! I wish lots of creativity and lots of luck!
Linh, from Sachsen-Anhalt
Ambassador for a day changed my whole life - it was magical to stand in the room with all the other well meaning and strong girls. We are friends to this day! We weren't treated as kids - we were treated as peers and the team helped us to realise our potential.
Please don't be afraid! Take advantage of this unique competition. I hope you have the same incredible and unforgettable experience as I did! I hope you will enter the competition.

Ambassador for a day competition is an initiative that is both inclusive and personal at the same time! This is your opportunity to use your voice to make a difference. So do it wisely!

Use it as a tool to convey your thoughts.
