I’m a great fan of Shakira, not just because she’s such a great dancer or because I’m completely in love with her music. No. It’s because she’s a short girl, and being short myself, I naturally look up to short women who have accomplished quite a lot of things. Apparently, her accomplishments aren’t limited to “just” having hit songs and albums. She’s been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for three years now. In April, she helped launch the Unite For Children, Unite Against AIDS campaign in Madrid, Spain where she talked about educating young people about HIV/AIDS. Earlier this month, she joined the fight against violence in El Salvador.
How refreshing. Underneath that sexed-up, hip-shaking exterior beats a heart of gold. And don’t you believe any rumors that she uttered a racial slur on MTV.
