Bilingual Role Model
What is a Role Model?
1. A person whose behavior, example, or success is or can be emulated by others, especially by younger people.

My definition of a Role Model:
2. Is a person who inspires and steps up to their dreams and takes action!
Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll was born on February 2, 1977 in Barranquilla, Colombia.
Her dad is Lebanese and her mother is Colombian.
She wrote her first song at age 8 and signed her first record deal at age 13.
Shakira is known all over the world! She has sold more than 70 million albums world wide.
She speaks Spanish, fluent English and Portuguese, some Italian, French, Catalan and Arabic.
Pop-Rock Singer
Belly dancer
Care giver
Colombian pop singer and dancer Shakira has won two Grammy Awards, seven Latin Grammy Awards and 12 Billboard Latin Music Awards, and has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Known for hits like "Whenever, Wherever" and "Hips Don't Lie," Shakira is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, and the second most successful female Latin singer after Gloria Estefan. By 2012, her U.S. album sales had reached nearly 10 million.
How Shakira impacted my community.
How has Shakira made a contribution to my culture.
Contributions Shakira has made to our Education System.
We both love to belly dance.
We both have the same middle name, Isabel.
She works very hard.
I hope one day to be a mother like her.
I love Colombian food!
Shakira donated over more than $100,000 to foundation she founded herself called, Pies Descalzos Foundation "bare foot". The Pies Descalzos Foundation currently provides education and nutrition to over six thousand poor children in Colombia.
She now operates six schools and is expanding its work to other countries, including newly launched projects in Haiti and South Africa.
We need more people like Shakira, who care so much of those in need. Not only does her music make people dance, it gives them the ability to a different culture. She's a perfect example of being humble. Although she's worth millions, she's never forgotten where she came from. They say, is better to give than receive and Shakira has definitely gave her all and than some! She took action and never gave up. She's more than an Idol she's a hero., because of her many are getting the education they need.
Shakira previously dated Anotonio De La Rua for almost 10 years, he's son of former Argentine President. In April 2013, De la Rua made headlines that he was going to sue Shakira for $250 milion.

Shakira has also become a leading advocate for Education and Early Childhood Development, proving herself to be as adept at making compelling speeches to world leaders or to the students at Oxford University.
She is a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador.
In October 2011, President Obama appointed her to the President's Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics.
Shakira is very unique in many ways besides her incredible talent she once dream of helping others. She's impacted my community in ways that dreams do come true. She's a perfect example of never quitting and working very hard to achieve those goals.
