This made some headlines last week as Shakira joined the prestigious list of actors, writers, film stars, musicians, celebrities and politicians who have spoken at Oxford University.

We decided to post this as Shakira proves that not only is she a beautiful and talented artist/musician but that she also is passionate about many social issues – such as education and the work of her charity, Barefoot Foundation. For those of you that are not aware Barefoot Foundation is a non-profit started by Shakira and its main mission is to ensure that every child can exercise his or her basic right to a quality education.

Shakira, we wish you the best in the new year to come and may you continue to fill us not only with your inspirational “She Wolf” dance moves and lyrics but that you also continue to stay humble about your roots and about those issues that matter most to all of us.

We can’t say enough about her…so we’ll let the video recap her speech.

  1. I’m glad that she is able to get this type of publicity because there is more to life than hip-shaking and i’m glad that she pointing that out at the beginning of her speech. I agree though, education is our ticket to living our dreams.

  2. Well done, Shakira for helping in Haiti. Keep up the excellent work. God bless you.

    Shakira is really an apple in the garden of eden…
