Victoria Beckham had her opening day of her London boutique today but, she didn’t choose fashion.

On Sept. 25, instead she leant her voice at the United Nations in New York City to address the General Assembly.

“I’m looking forward to working closely with you and your team at the U.N.,” Beckham, 40, said to the Executive Director of UNAIDS, Michel Sidibe.

“I work closely with the Elton John AIDS Foundation as well as mothers2mothers. I’m a mother, I’m a woman and I want to reach out and help as many women and mothers as I can. Babies should not be born with HIV.”

Victoria has always helped in charitable events. Recently, the mother of four sold 600 pieces from her clothing and accessories wardrobe to raise funds for mother2mothers in August, a charity that strives to eliminate the transmission of HIV and AIDS between mothers and their unborn children.

She was honored as an UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador like many others, such as, Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry and Emma Watson.

The former Spice Girl shared pictures on Twitter of the event. Beckham tweeted“Proudly accepting the role of @UNAIDS goodwill ambassador #UNGA x vb,”

Singer, Fashion Icon, Mother and Ambassador, you’ve just gotta love Victoria.
