Priyanka Chopra: Create Your Own Legacy

Priyanka Chopra - Pave Your Own Path

Indian actress Priyanka Chopra discusses the importance of always being true to yourself, and says it's better to swim against the current and create your own legacy than to be successful by being like everyone else.

Transcript:


"I am who I am. You like it, great. You don't like it, I don't care. That's who I've always been. Whether I'm coming to America, whether I go to India, I'm always true to just who I am. If you try and change yourself according to thinking that, 'Oh, I'm going to a different country' or 'I need to please' or 'I need to not be alien enough' or ... You're overthinking it. People have to like you or relate to you for who you are. You can't be someone else suddenly. I've stayed very true to who I am, whether it's in India or here, I mean, as much as I can, of course.

"But, see, what is the choice? That you walk a path like everyone else, dressed in suits, go to work, and come back, and never have a legacy? Or, you swim upstream like a trout against norm? And then whatever little you achieve is only yours. It's not like everyone else. I'd rather have something that is my path, paved by me, something that is my legacy, my own self, my own achievement, than being one of the many successful people in the world."
