During the event, Priyanka also shared how far she, and the community, had come, saying: ‘When I came here 10 years ago and I started looking for work in America, Aziz Ansari and I met at this one afterparty and we were like, “OK, we’re going to count how many brown people are in the room” and it was just us.
‘Today I stand amongst peers amongst colleagues among South Asian excellence and I have goosebumps.’
