Recently Priyanka Chopra, who is now a global icon had said that she was never a kind of a person, who had to be put in a box and
shared her journey from “carefree teen persona” to her present “ambitious, goal-oriented woman”.
In an interview with the Star World India, the 30-year-old actress said, “I love to challenge the status quo, to pursue an idea, a dream
that I had for myself, I always wanted to give those thoughts a shot,” reports the Dawn.
Adding, “I’ve been in the public since I was 17-years-old and it’s really all I’ve known. Being crowned Miss India and then Miss World,
suddenly I went on from becoming an aeronautical engineer, carefree teenager to standing on a world stage, where I have to have a
point of view on probably the most important world events.”
“The innate ability to recognise opportunities that are presented to me gave me courage. I tried my hand in the Hindi film industry. I
literally had no training, no godfather, no experience. I guess I just had a belief in myself, and it’s been an incredible journey with highs,
lows, successes, failures, joy, sadness, and everything else in the middle, but it’s been all my own,” she said.
