Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who is representing India globally, was recently invited by the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum to interview United States Vice President Kamala Harris. Now settled in Los Angeles, the actress spoke to the Vice President about women’s rights and the need for women in the government in a room full of Democrats. 

During the interview, Priyanka spoke about the Indian connection she shares with Kamala. "I think we're both daughters of India, in a way. You're a proud American-born daughter of an Indian mom and a Jamaican father. I am an Indian born of two physicians as parents and a recent immigrant to this country who totally still believes in the wholehearted, you know, American Dream,” the actress told.

In September, Priyanka delivered a speech on Sustainable Development Goals at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Monday. The global star, who is a Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF), spoke about how 'all is not well with our world'. She shared pictures and videos from the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Moment at the UNGA.
