Globetrotting for a cause!

While the country celebrates international icon, Priyanka Chopra’s homecoming, the superstar was in Dubai recently with Hollywood actors Sarah Lafferty and Gina Torres, as well as Brit Formula 1 racer, Lewis Hamilton for a global education and skills gala. Priyanka Chopra also caught up with former Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, whom she had first met at the 50th anniversary celebrations of an education gala in Boston three years ago.

Also present at this gathering were three teen survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, who spoke about gun reforms. Talking about the event said Priyanka Chopra, “I listened to them talk about fighting for gun reform. It was extremely disturbing. This is not what children should be talking about, yet in the reality of our world today, they do. There’s a whole generation of kids we might lose if we don’t get them education”.
