Go, Shakira, go!!
The music icon wrote a VERY inspiring letter that basically called on the people of earth to try and do their part in making sure all children - wherever and whenever - get the education they deserve!!!
Here's part of what she wrote:
"Today, 18 years after I started, at 36 and as a new mom, I can see my work over the years coming full circle as I watch my own son develop. I'm finding that motherhood is a world of discovery, and I find myself in a constant state of awe watching Milan absorb the world around him at an astonishing pace. The first five years of life is when the brain grows at a rate that is unparalleled at any later stage in life. In fact, 85% of a child's core brain structure is developed by the age of four. So why not give them the best fighting chance possible from day one?
When I look at him I see limitless possibilities. I feel what I think all parents feel, and hope for their children's futures, regardless of their own background; a determination to make sure that their future is brighter than ours was and that their dreams of tomorrow exceed what we today are even capable of imagining. However, my work, our work, is far from done."
Towards the end of the letter she wrote:
"My hope is that those who read this are encouraged to find their own ways to contribute to improving our children's futures through education. Whether that means helping to spread the word to parents about the resources available to them, applauding our world leaders for the strides they are making in education while holding them accountable for continued progress, or being one of those business leaders who see investing in education as an innovation and not simply charity."
