Victoria Justice makes some silly faces with new friends from Guatemala!
The 18-year-old actress visited the country for Girl Up, an organization supported by the United Nations which gives American girls the opportunity to raise awareness and funds to help some of the worldâ€™s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls.
“I learned from United Nations leaders here, many Guatemalan girls â€“ particularly the indigenous population — are challenged by lack of access to education, high rates of chronic malnutrition, violence, inequality, and exploitation. I was so touched when we visited a center that helps girls who have been victims of many types of violence,” Victoria wrote on her Girl Up blog.
