Shakira is an Education Enthusiast

Shakira spends her afternoon speaking to a house of students at Oxford University’s Student Union in Oxford, England on Monday (December 7).

The 32-year-old singer spoke about the need for universal access to education, eradicating poverty and supplementing economic growth.

Shakira said she has an idea of how she wants the youth of 2060 to remember next year: “That our mission for global peace consisted of sending 30,000 educators to Afghanistan, not 30,000 soldiers,” she said. “That in 2010, world education became more important than world domination.”

She doesn’t have a complete degree but she has taken college courses in history or something like that because she wanted to experience that. She really does believe in education. She looks pretty.

She is lovely girl and still down to earth. A lot of people on showbussiness should learn to act like her….

Another uneducated entertainment bimbo trying to educate others

She’s dressed more for a teenage party than the library!

Love that dress, she can stimulate my economy

Good that she’s trying to help the world instead of going out and getting wasted.

she’s so boring now
i use 2 like her not 2 long ago, but she’s not what she use 2 be
cute outfit tho, her legs look nice in those tights

Omg I was actually at this talk and she was adorable!! She spoke really well and really passionately about the topic but at the same time with such a natural manner- plus you cant exactly tell from the pictures but she is so SO TINY>….like seriously her hair is bigger than the rest of her…

That uneducated bimbo wrote some of the best songs ive ever heard in her native language.

and learned a foreign language in less than a year. How about you?


she actually studyed History in yeah she knows what she’s talking about

And if she was the teacher, I’d certainly be willing to learn!
