Priyanka Chopra is not just making heads turn by slaying red carpets but also doing her bit for the world. Presently, the actress is busy serving her duties as the Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.
The Bajirao-Mastani actress is traveling and spreading consciousness about the importance of education, especially for the girl child.
In the same event, Priyanka met the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai. Encaustic Malala shared a picture with the star on Twitter.
And Priyanka's reply made us fall in love with her, all over again!
The actress even took to Instagram to share the beautiful moment with Malala.
I could write a novel about how smart, incredible, inspiring, encouraging and funny this young woman is...but I will keep it brief. Malala, you are an undeniable force to be reckoned with. The world knows that. You are a role model to all the girls and boys that want to make this world a better place for the future. Spending a few hours with you and your incredible father Mr. Yousafzai ( who reminds me so much of my father) , I realized you're also just a young girl with young dreams. Your jokes, Your love for Hindi Films, your infectious laughter will always remind me of what a huge responsibility you have taken on at such a tender age.. I'm so proud to know you my friend. You inspire women like me all over the world. Can't wait to speak to u in our secret Hindi/Urdu again. ❤️
Priyanka took a pledge for lending all her support to educate as many girls as possible.
PeeCee emphasized that menstrual hygiene and violence around the school premises are reasons why most of the girls in places like India, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Jordan have not even attempted to take up higher education. She grassed the panel where she laid down points about why girls opt out of education.
She expressed her ecstatic to share the stage with Gloria Steinem, who was one of the panelists along with her.
The actress also spoke about women empowerment when she attended the UN Global Goals Awards.
Honored to have participated in the Global Goals Awards tonight at the UN General Assembly in NYC. These awards highlight the role girls play in changing their lives and in making progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Equally proud to have presented the Leadership Award to the amazing @ria13sharma from India for her stellar work for acid attack survivors. Ria founded Make Love Not Scars (MLNS) which is an organization that actively supports survivors of acid attacks physically and mentally, and campaigns to raise awareness of the issue. Ria’s efforts are contributing to change the lives of many women who have survived acid attacks. MLNS have ensured that survivors receive free treatment under the Supreme Court order for the welfare of acid victims passed in April 2015. #globalgoals #unga #foreverychild @unicef Please swipe for more.
Kicking off #UNGA to advocate for the importance of education. Proud to stand alongside my fellow @unicef Goodwill Ambassador 19 yr old @MuzoonAlmellehan, her strength...her determination...her hope...is nothing short of inspiring. We endeavor to be the voices of all children around the world that are denied an education because of poverty, displacement or war. #UnitedNationsGeneralAssembly
She also met the youngest goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, Muzoon Almellehan who is also known as The Syrian Malala.
