A FEW WORDS FOR THE FOUNDATION AS AN AMBASSADOR
It is a great honour for me to have the opportunity to represent the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation. I will do my outmost to help the Foundation reach its goals in the years to come by using my own experience both as a professional athlete and as an entrepreneur. I am sure we, together, can make a big difference in children’s lives around the world.
