Now, the star is ready to inspire more people around the world as he joins powerhouse global humanitarian personalities such as the likes of Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett, Emma Watson, Priyanka Chopra, Anne Hathaway, Leonardo Dicaprio, Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry and Serena Williams as a UN Ambassador.

TRESOR’s role as an HLI will include amongst others the advocacy of the struggles and challenges faced by refugees. Being in a unique position of having been a refugee himself, TRESOR makes for the perfect UNHCR Ambassador, as this is a cause very close to his heart and he is able to truly empathise with refugees.

“Having been a refugee myself for so many years, I truly understand the struggle for simple basic life needs. To have organisations like the UNHCR on the continent is truly a blessing. I’m honoured that they have identified me as a suitable voice to advocate for refugees on the continent and I look forward to playing a role that can positively affect the lives of refugees,” Tresor said in a statement.

Tresor endeavours to take on an active role with the UNHCR and plans on using his voice and talent to make a change in the lives of others. This is an incredible achievement and we wish the star well on his journey.
