Global icon Priyanka Chopra recently opened up on the difficulties of being born as a girl and professed the importance of education to battle the hardships and hypocrite mindset women face ever since they are born.

To celebrate Teachers’ Day, the 34-year-old actress posted a video yesterday, which starts with a question, “Is it easy being born a girl in India?”

The one-minute video shows her saying, “It’s very very difficult to be a girl in India, since the time we are born we are not valued enough as compared to the boys, We are told that a girl is ‘paraya dhan’ (belong to others). If a family doesn’t have a son than when somebody dies they don’t get heaven.”

In the heartfelt video, the ‘Quantico’ star reminisced the importance of teachers, especially in the lives of the girls.

“Having a tough weapon like a degree or an education makes you so much more equipped to deal with everything, it just makes you so much stronger,” added the Desi girl in the video.

“We rise because of our teachers,” the video read.

It also carried a famous quote by Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, which read, “True teachers are those who help us think for ourselves.”

It is to mention that Teachers’ Day is celebrated on the birth anniversary of India’s second President Dr. Radhakrishnan.

Along with the brief clip, she tweeted, “Happy Teachers Day. Every girl deserves an education & together, we can make it happen @GirlRisingIndia #IAmGirlRising.”

On a related note, Priyanka serves as an ambassador for Girl Rising, the campaign to improve girls’ education globally, and Girl Up, a United Nations foundation. She was also appointed as a National Ambassador to UNICEF for children’s rights in 2010.

On the work front, PeeCee is all set to have the premiere of the second season of her American thriller television series ‘Quantico’ on September 25.

She will also make her Hollywood debut next year in ‘Baywatch,’ alongside Zac Efron, Dwayne Johnson.
