Young Indian woman takes on role of British High Commissioner for a day

A 21-year-old woman from Mumbai stepped into the shoes of the UK's top diplomat in India as part of a competition to empower girls.

Shreya Dharmarajan spent Wednesday as 'High Commissioner for a Day' in New Delhi, getting a behind-the-scenes look at the life of a diplomat.

The 'High Commissioner for a Day' competition has been organised annually by the British High Commission since 2017 to celebrate International Day of the Girl Child on October 11. The event provides a platform for young women to raise awareness about girls' rights and highlight the importance of women in leadership roles.
