Priyanka Chopra has some special plans for the year 2016. This year, the diva wants to concentrate on supporting education of girls.
Talking about her passion, Priyanka Chopra told Bollywood Life,"I have been involved with UNICEF for 10 years, I have been their goodwill ambassador for seven. For me education is very important and I have been an advocate of it for years. Education not just formally but the ability for girls to be able to have ammunition to stand on their own feet, whether it is learning how to sow or cook, small things where girl can have financial independence.''
Priyanka Chopra further added, ''My mother taught me that since I was a child, if you have financial independence then no matter where you go you will always have courage and confidence that you don't depend on anyone else."

''In our country girls don't go to school because parents are afraid to send them, thats also education. Talking about issues and not hiding, we need to teach our society to treat men and women if not equally then at least with respect. Women have been second class citizens for a very long time in the whole world, its time for people to give women their due for their merit. So thats been something very close to me and I will continue to work on it.''
