Priyanka Chats With Veep Kamala Harris , Meets Top South Asian White House Staffers
WASHINGTON, DC (ANI) – Actress Priyanka Chopra during a discussion with Vice President Kamala Harris said, “It’s so baffling to me, that in this country (US) the great land of so much opportunity, so much revolution we have not seen that final glass ceiling shattered.”
Chopra drew parallels between her and Harris by adding, “I think we’re both daughters of India in a way. You’re a proud American-born daughter of an Indian mom, I am an Indian born of two physicians, as parents and a recent immigrant to this country who totally still believes in the wholehearted you know, American dream.”
Vice President Harris on September 30, in her talk at the Democratic National Committee Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington DC, talked about various issues including reproductive rights, gun violence, pay disparity, and equal opportunities.
In her visit to Washington DC, Chopra also made a stop at the White House where she had tea with some South Asian officials and met top South Asian staffers including Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and President Joe Biden’s speechwriter Vinay Reddy.
