If anyone watches the series Quantico, then you will have heard about Priyanka Chopra. A firm favourite in the WoK HQ office she is an Indian actress who started out her career as Miss World in the year 2000. A multi-talented performer who has had roles in tense dramas both in Bollywood and Hollywood she has a crossover appeal for both cultures.
Not content with being an entertainer Priyanka does lots of humanitarian work and especially enjoys working with young people in her native India. She has twice been a UNICEF Ambassador and does voluntary work in the areas of health, gender equality and education to name a few.
If all of these achievements aren’t enough, she is also a recording artist with three albums under her belt. No doubt we will be writing a more extended profile on Priyanka in the future, but for now, we wanted to leave you with a quote from her:
“Financial independence is paramount. My mom always says that when a woman is financially independent, she has the ability to live life on her own terms. I think that was the soundest advice that I ever got. No matter where you go in life or who you get married to, you have to be financially independent – whether you use it or not.”
