Love it when I watch an interview of women who crafted their careers the way they wanted, Priyanka Chopra stands as such where she reflects both brains and beauty, the Indian actress who started her career at the age of 18 when she won Miss India, then Miss World, followed by entering the acting world in Bollywood, today, she is among the cast of the American series Quantico.
Some little facts about Priyanka Chopra, first of all, she is Indian, her parents are doctors, she described them as overachievers where her mom spoke 9 languages and is a pilot, Priyanka was a recording artist as a teen and she spent a lot of time in the U.S, and went to school there while growing up, she also wanted to be an engineer, in 2013 her father died from cancer.
During her talk at Forbes Women’s Summit she commented on how she does not like to be put in a bucket by solely described as being Indian, although she is proud for being from India, she explains, her life experiences defines who she is.
As young women navigating their career paths they are continuously facing many challenges. The choices they make will shape them.
“I don’t believe you can sit and wish for something and it will happen, the souls of your feet will have to be blistered, there is no pretty picture for hard work, there is no success story that does not have shadows of pain, doubt, and fear, but when you step out into the light all that gets hidden and the effort and path is not easy for any success story”.Priyanka Chopra
