Earlier this week, New York City legislators made the announcement that Diwali will become a public school holiday, starting in 2023. And among the many who are celebrating this decision, one of the people to show their excitement was none other than Priyanka Chopra, 40, who took to social media to share her elation.
The Quantico actress reposted a video to her Instagram Story, where New York State Assembly member Jenifer Rajkumar shared the news. Along with the video, Chopra wrote, “After all these years! My teenage self living in Queens is crying tears of joy. #representationmatters.”
