Getting sent to the principal’s office is no punishment if Nicki Minaj is sitting behind the desk!
As a reward for winning the “Get MotivatED Challenge,” a six-week competition to improve daily attendance rates for participating schools, Nicki Minaj acted as principal for the day at Collins Academy High School.
She also presented three exemplary students with $10,000 college scholarships (courtesy of Comcast), helped teach a freshman English class, and took part in an assembly.
Nicki touted the importance of education in life throughout the day:
"I am a young, female mogul before I am an artist. As a business woman there isn't a single day where I don't use my education or acquire new knowledge to ensure my success. Regardless of where you are today, with education you can take yourself where you want to be. That's why I am working with the Get Schooled Foundation. They are finding innovative and exciting ways to bring that message to schools like the Collins Academy."
So awesome! This is the only time we’ve wanted to be back in high school since graduation! LOL!
