100 Women: How a musical changed one girl's life

Three years ago, Priyanka left her home in an impoverished area late one evening for an interview with the Teach for India non-profit.

Now, she's headed to the United States for university on a scholarship - and says the musical theatre project changed her life.

What is 100 Women?

BBC 100 Women names 100 influential and inspirational women around the world every year. In 2017, we're challenging them to tackle four of the biggest problems facing women today - the glass ceiling, female illiteracy, harassment in public spaces and sexism in sport.

With your help, they'll be coming up with real-life solutions and we want you to get involved with your ideas. Find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and use #100Women
