UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Priyanka Chopra is helping students adapt to virtual classrooms. She shared a video on Instagram announcing that she is helping students in Los Angeles in getting used to online classrooms amid this lockdown. She says in the video, “Hi everyone! In this crazy time right now, it is so important for people to come together as a community and help out where they can. Youth empowerment, success in education have been two causes that have been so close to my heart, always.”
The aim is to not have a break in the education process and going forward with an online classroom is the only way now that the entire world is facing a pandemic.

Priyanka Chopra had also tweeted that she and her husband Nick Jonas had donated to several organisations like the PM-CARES Fund, UNICEF, Feeding America and Goonj: “These organizations are doing amazing work by helping those impacted by #Covid19. They are feeding the hungry, supporting doctors and first responders, helping low income and homeless communities, and supporting our colleagues in the entertainment industry.”
Starting from winning Miss World to changing the cinematic landscape with unconventional roles in Bollywood, to achieving a niche for herself in the West through her lead role in drama thriller series Quantico, Priyanka has come a long way. Chopra was highly applauded for her character in Shonali Bose’s The Sky is Pink last year.
