Agnes Monica against Human Trafficking

Agnes Monica (24) is currently one of the most popular female artist in Indonesia.

She started her carrier when she was a teenager as a photo model, then played a leading role in a famous soap opera. Afterward,  she became a successful pop singer.

About one one month ago, Agnes made her successful debut as a Jury in the selection of the Indonesian Idol.

Most recently, MTV music channel has appointed Agnes as a spokesperson for their campaign to put end to human trafficking. The Jakarta Post quoted MTV's End Exploitation and Trafficking (EXIT) Campaign Manager Matt Love as saying that Agnes was chosen because she is smart and outgoing.

I hope that Agnes will be successful in the efforts to fight human trafficking in Indonesia.

I know this is way off topic, but it did strike me the 24 y/o local celebrity in this picture looks like she was born and bred in Friesland (our most Northern province) - white skin, rosy cheeks, ginger hair...

Colson,

Today's young celebrities would do anything to show that they are different from others, they'll dye hair, pierce body parts, wear colored eye contact lenses, blush their cheeks, etc. Except that Agnes' skin is originally white.

I think agnes only looking for fame because her career began to fade, what accomplishments she's already doing to reduce trafficking in persons?
