Trisha kickstarted her association at Unicef with a heartwarming and genuine interaction with children and her inspiring talk. Her powerful talk included lines such as "In the long run, girls' education will eliminate all the shortcomings in the society"; and "Extra-curricular activities can make school more interesting & appealing for kids. When I studied, I used to look fwd [forward] to PT class, dramatics class, acting class etc. I came out of school with no stage fear, as a result."

Trisha wore a subtle and elegant saree outfit for the event.
