Actor Priyanka Chopra recently met Nobel Laureate Malala Yousufzai and the actor is in awe of her.
Priyanka, who is the goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, shared a picture with Yousufzai on Instagram and hailed her for her efforts in empowering and inspiring young girls. “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,” Priyanka wrote along side the picture.
Bollywood actor and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra is tirelessly working and spreading the word about the importance of education among children, especially for the girl child.
At an event yesterday, the 35-year-old actor emphasised on the importance of education and urged everyone to educate and create opportunities for young girls and children.
Priyanka Chopra took to her Twitter account and shared a picture with a caption, “I raise my book in solidarity with children who deserve not just school books, but quality education. Education is every child’s right!#UNGA.”
Chopra met Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai, the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, who is in New York for her charity, the Malala Fund.
An ecstatic Malala who had been accepted at Oxford to study Politics, Philosophy, and Economics last month, took to the micro-blogging site and shared a picture with Chopra. She wrote, “Can’t believe I met @priyankachopra! #UNGA2017.”
Chopra later “corrected” Malala saying she herself experienced a fan moment meeting the Nobel Peace Laureate.
The actor wrote, “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.”
Chopra also took to her Instagram account to share a picture with Malala. Calling Malala “smart, incredible, inspiring, encouraging and funny,” she wrote:
“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.
