President Barack Obama has appointed Colombian superstar Shakira as a member of the Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. The White House supported this decision highlighting Shakira's humanitarian record through her Barefoot Foundation as well as her work with the World Bank on educational programs.
The Commission, which was created by President Obama early this year, provides advice to the President and Education Secretary Arne Duncan on educational issues related to Hispanic communities in the US. The Latin music star was honored by the decision and shared her own words in the White House blog saying that "investing in the educational achievement of this vulnerable population will not only help determine the economic future and competitiveness of this nation, but can serve as a model for the world. I am grateful to have an opportunity to support and inform such important work," Shakira stated.
