Priyanka Chopra conquered the 'world' in 2000, when she was just 18. But she had a bigger goal in mind and almost "20 years later", she says, nothing's changed. Priyanka took a nostalgic trip down memory lane and returned to Instagram with a photo of her 18-year-old self from when she was crowned Miss World in November 2000. "Miss World at 18! The turn of the millennium... the year 2000! Wow. It feels like just yesterday I was living this dream," read an excerpt from Priyanka's caption. Priyanka Chopra, who is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, added a powerful message to her throwback post: "Now, almost 20 years later, my enthusiasm for changing the status quo remains as strong and is at the core of everything I do. I truly believe girls have the power to bring about change if they get the opportunities they deserve."
