Before hosting the Global Citizen, Priyanka, who is UNICEF's Goodwill Ambassador, met Malala Yousafzai at UN Global Goals Awards.
Of Malala, Priyanka wrote: "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."
This is what Priyanka posted on Instagram:
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.
The Bajirao Mastani actress was also honoured to speak at the Global Goals Awards on the importance of empowering girls. Priyanka addressed the global leaders and influencers from the United Nations and urged everyone to come together and work to empower, educate and create opportunities for young girls and children.
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi... "If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children." It was an honor to speak at the UN Global Goals Awards on the importance of empowering girls; addressing global leaders and influencers from the United Nations, philanthropy, media, non-profits and business. We all need to come together and work to empower, educate, create opportunities and impart skill sets so that we can be their catalysts for change and to help them build their brave new world. If possible, a safe one where they can live their dreams and laugh together as one. I had the opportunity to meet @muzoonalmellehan, @unicef's youngest goodwill ambassador, who is doing such amazing work advocating education for Syrian girls. All in all, this was a very inspiring and uplifting night. #GlobalGoals #UNGA #ForEveryChild Please swipe for more.
