The British High Commission has been organising the ‘High Commissioner for a Day’ competition annually since 2017 to celebrate the International Day of the Girl Child (October 11).
Last year’s winner was Jagriti Yadav from Lucknow, who experienced a broad range of diplomatic activities including meeting Minister of State for External Affairs Meenakshi Lekhi, the Mayor of West Yorkshire Tracy Brabin, and the Executive Chairman of Wipro Rishad Premji.
