Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra recently spoke at the Global Goals Awards on the importance of empowering girls.
The ‘Bajirao Mastani’ star addressed the global leaders and urged everyone to educate and create opportunities for young girls and children.
PeeCee, who is the goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, posted a picture on Instagram with someone who is known to be an “advocate for girl’s education”.
That was none other than the youngest Nobel Peace Laureate, Malala Yousafzai.
She captioned the snap, “I could write a novel about how smart, incredible, inspiring, and 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 realised 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 you in our secret Hindi/Urdu again.”
Malala too shared a picture of their meeting on her Twitter, captioning it as, “Can’t believe I met @priyankachopra!”
The actress was quick to respond and tweeted, “Oh @Malala no words will be enough…I can’t believe I..met..U!!You’re just a young girl with so much heart..and such achievements. So proud.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka will soon commence shooting for ‘Quantico’ Season 3.
