September 21, 2017: Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who became the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Peace Prize, just had one of the most ‘unbelievable’ moments of her life, or so she says.
The 20-year-old humanitarian and education activist who recently spoke at the 6th Annual Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, shared a picture with Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra on her Twitter handle. She captioned the snap, “Can’t believe I met @priyankachopra! UNGA2017.”

The Bollywood actress returned Malala’s compliment right back and tweeted how proud she’s of the young girl’s achievements.

This is not the first time the global icons have met each other though. Their paths crossed at a 2013 special dinner organised for global leaders by the United Nations in New York. She has been invited to speak at the UN General Assembly for the last few years. Last month, Yousafzai revealed that she is headed to Oxford University to study politics, philosophy and economics.
