Priyanka Chopra addressed UNGA in New York as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF

As a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, Priyanka Chopra spoke to the UN General Assembly on Monday in New York.

The former Miss World shared a number of images and videos on Instagram along with a long, sentimental message to give followers a sneak glimpse into the occasion.

she wrote, “Walking through the gates of the United Nations this morning to speak at UNGA for the second time, as a proud representative of UNICEF, gave me real pause,”

When discussing the UN’s agenda for this year, the Quantico actor said, “At the top of this year’s agenda are the Sustainable Development Goals. Today was all about action, ambition, and hope. It was about what we must do together to make the SDG’s a reality, and we don’t have a moment to lose. A special thank you to Secretary-General @antonioguterres for having me today.”

Additionally, the Global star emphasised the value of education in her caption, stating, “The second moment I had the privilege of participating was the Transforming Education Summit. It’s hard to believe that nearly 2/3 of children across low- middle- and high-income countries cannot read and comprehend a simple story. The system has failed them.”

“As the US Secretary of Education @seccardona put it so candidly, education is the great equalizer, but if we continue to do what we have done, we are going to get what we have gotten. We owe every child this basic birthright, an equal chance to learn and reach their full potential,”  she stated.
