Priyanka was previously associated with the UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador on national level.
Adding another feather to her success, Priyanka Chopra has been appointed as the newest UNICEF global goodwill ambassador promoting child rights and adolescence at the global body’s 70th anniversary event at United Nations Headquarters in New York.
The former Miss World was previously associated with the UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador on a national level and her global popularity seems to be one of the factors behind the association now being taken on a global level.
Priyanka shared the stage with superstars like David Beckham, Jackie Chan and Orlando Bloom and the actress shared her happiness through social media.

The ‘Quantico’ actress also expressed her gratitude towards the organization during Monday night’s event.
“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 honor. Along with this decade-old journey, with UNICEF, I have been on many field trips to villages and centers across India. On those trips, I spent time with numerous young girls and their families and experienced first and the transformative power of empowering young girls with opportunities that are rightfully theirs,” Priyanka said.
“Together, with my fellow, dedicated ambassadors, I am now proud to stand with UNICEF to help build the world where children’s rights are respected and protected,” she further added.
