At 37, she is the world’s youngest female head of government. She has often won hearts with her compassion, inclusive approach and gesture towards various communities. Now, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern seems to have added to her fan base with her recent two-minute video that has gone viral.
Ardern was recently given a challenge by her staff to list the achievements of her government in the past two years in two minutes. Though Ardern was promptly able to crunch the major achievements of her government, she failed to complete the challenge within the given time-frame and went 20 seconds beyond.
In the viral clip, which has been shared on several social media platforms, Ardern cheerfully goes on to list the achievements of her government, including creating over 92,000 jobs, improving wages, deployment of 1600 new police officers and introducing gun control laws.
Watch the video here:
