Rubbing shoulders with Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai, US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power and other luminaries, Priyanka Chopra was present at the Global Leadership Dinner hosted by the United Nations Foundation (UNF).

The actor, who is also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, has recently joined the UNF’s Girl Up campaign. The dinner took place at the Gotham Hall in New York City.

The event celebrated the work of UN supporters and inspirational leaders who have been working towards peace and prosperity. And Priyanka was joined by personalities such as Kathy Calvin, chief executive officer of the UNF, and Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan among others.

When we spoke to Priyanka before she left for the event, the actor sounded extremely excited about "supporting the UN in their endeavours to uplift the girl child".

On her return, she told us, "Being part of the United Nations charity dinner was amazing. I spent a lot of time with Queen Rania of Jordan and the lovely Jane Fonda. I also met the girls from Girl Up who work toward the education, health and safety of women across the world. The night dedicated to the girl child was truly awesome."
