Missy has served as a Laureus Ambassador since 2015, joining the Laureus World Sports Academy in 2019. She has visited multiple Laureus programmes around the world and represented the organisation as a spokesperson on many occasions.
Edwin Moses, the Chair of Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, said: "Missy will, I know, be an incredible addition to our Board. Her passion and understanding of our programmes is tangible - you can see it when she interacts with kids at our programmes, and you can see it when she talks with her fellow Trustees.
“As a youth-serving organisation it is important for those of us who have been with Laureus for many years to hear a voice from a younger generation, and from someone who was in the public eye at such a young age. Her commitment to supporting young girls through the power of sport is aligned with our own commitment to true gender equity - from the Boardroom to the fields, courts and pitches on which our programmes do their work."
