Shakira is an Education Enthusiast

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.
