In addition to her conversation with the Vice President, Chopra got to meet with other South Asian members of the Biden administration, which she documented with a touching post on Instagram.
“Today, I had the amazing opportunity of meeting and conversing with the South Asian members in the Biden administration,” she wrote. “Representation matters in every sphere of life, and the reality—that I am standing here with this diverse group is beyond belief. I was so excited to learn that this is the most diverse administration in American history, and that deserves applause and ACKNOWLEDGEMENT.”
She continued, “For years, I’ve struggled with finding my place in America. When I was growing up, there weren’t many women, let alone South Asians, in positions of power across any medium. Lucky for me, my parents and grandmother were a part of the civil service, which gave me an ounce of hope, but I was never sure if I’d ever see the day when we all got a seat at every table.”
