Shakira met with a group of teenage girls in Azerbaijan on Friday (12Oct12) to talk to them about the power of education.

As part of her role as an UN Ambassador, the superstar took time out before her concerts in the the capital Baku to chat with the adolescents about how important studying is and how they can promote healthy living through sport.


After her meeting, she said, "Sport is a particularly good way of reaching out to girls as well as boys, and can provide them with opportunities to connect with others socially. Sport, like education, can help girls become equal players in society."

I love her. I remember reading a story of how she likes to take college classes just for the fun of learning.
