Girls’ rights advocate Priyanka Chopra will now be a force for children and adolescents globally. She is already a champion for India’s children. She stated,
My involvement with UNICEF began almost 10 years ago, in India. Today, I stand here humbled, enriched and committed, because of it. Thank you, UNICEF, for the amazing journey so far as well as this huge honour.
Along this decade old journey, with UNICEF, I have been on many field trips to villages and centres across India. On those trips, I spent time with numerous young girls and their families and experienced first-hand the transformative power of empowering young girls with opportunities that are rightfully theirs. Together, with my fellow, dedicated ambassadors, I am now proud to stand with UNICEF to help build a world where children’s rights are respected and protected.
