WHO: Actress-singer Victoria Justice’s breakthrough performance in Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101” led to her current starring role as a 16-year-old who gets recruited to join a performing arts high school in the net’s popular “Victorious,” which premiered in March.

WHAT: Girl Up, a “for girls, by girls” United Nations Foundation campaign, gives American girls the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for UN programs that help educate, protect and empower adolescent girls living in developing countries.

WHY: “I was looking for something to be a part of, and then this (opportunity) came my way. I really liked the fact that it was girls helping other girls. There is so much that I didn’t know and recently learned about girls just like me. I feel it’s so important to help other girls who have hopes and dreams just like we all do, but don’t have the same opportunities we have here for reaching their full potential.”

WHAT’S NEXT: In September, Justice helped launch the Girl Up campaign in Gotham. She will continue to support the “Unite for Girls” tour, which travels to cities across the U.S. to inspire and engage teens from coast to coast, including an upcoming event in Los Angeles on Nov. 5. Justice also plans to visit Girl Up supported programs in developing countries.
