Finland’s Prime Minister, Sana Marin, rested on Wednesday after handing over her one-day government duties to 16-year-old teenage Ava Murtu as part of a global initiative sponsored by Plan International, a children’s rights charity.

The initiative, called “Girls Take Over”, aims to raise awareness about online harassment against girls and encourage them to use digital skills and work in the technology sector.

Murtu, who ran the prime minister’s office for a few hours, said she had had an “exciting day” as she faced media questions outside Parliament. The teen leader also explained that she “learned some new things about legislation.”

Murtu, a climate change and human rights activist, encouraged girls to recognize the role they could play especially in the technology sector. “I think young people can teach adults to be more creative,” she said.

Asked if she would be interested in taking this job when she grows up, Murtaugh told AFP: “That decision is not on me, but maybe, yes!”

The global campaign coincides with the United Nations International Day of the Girl, which falls on Sunday. The girls will hold ministerial duties in Kenya, Peru, Sudan and Vietnam.

Meanwhile, tech companies such as Microsoft, Samsung and will allow girls to fill top jobs in many countries, including Guatemala, the Netherlands and the Philippines.
