Here's something to pencil into your diary: Priyanka Chopra Jonas is coming to the UAE. The Quantico star will be in Sharjah on March 4th as a guest speaker at the International Government Communication Forum (IGCF).
Activist, actress and producer, Priyanka will be tackling big topics like the power of visual media to change perceptions of ethnic diversity, and how it impacts interest in other cultures. The session, titled 'Why Does the Screen Have so Much Impact on Public Opinion?’, will be moderated by Raya Abi Rached, a journalist and TV presenter well-known in the Arab region.
Listed among Forbes’ Most Powerful Women in 2018, Priyanka Chopra Jonas represents UNICEF as their Goodwill Ambassador. Last year she received the Danny Kaye Humanitarian award for her work promoting education and children’s rights. Her achievements as an artist are no less impressive: she starred in and produced the critically-acclaimed independent film The Sky is Pink. Fearless, fashion-forward and feminist, the actress gives us something to look forward to in March ahead of Women’s Day.
