Her profile states that she was recruited at the UN to help with the financial reforms of the organization and her work included updating financial regulations and rules of the UN and managing the internal and external audits at UNDP.

Campaign Video

The video shows Akanksha walking inside the sprawling UN headquarters, as her voiceover says that people who have come before her have failed to hold the UN accountable.

“For 75 years, the UN has not fulfilled its promise to the world – refugees haven’t been protected, humanitarian aid has been minimal, and technology and innovation have been on the back-burner. We deserve a UN that leads progress,” she said.

“That is why I am running for the Secretary-General of the United Nations. I refuse to be a bystander. I will not accept this is the best the UN can do,” she added.

Akanksha further said it is high time that the UN stop serving politicians and start serving people.
