& Miguel Brito SHAKIRA Biographical Info Thesis Chracterisitc #3 Characteristic #2 Characteristic #1 Creditable Sources Shakira is a caring, hardworking,and patriotic Colombian pop singer.

She moved to Miami with her family to continue her dreams, and taught herself to write songs in English where she had found a producer and manager to sponsor her. Shakira’s first English album, ‘Laundry Service’, released in 2001. Years later,she became a twelve Billboard Latin Music Awards, and has been Golden Globe-nominated.She also is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and was awarded a UN International Labor Organization medal in 2010 for her efforts.
She still continues to work hard and is currently working on her 10th album. "I have learned that I am an adult already. And to grow with something is sometimes painful. And its great; I don't say it's a bad thing-but many things change, and many more responsibilities come, and you have more closure in your life, and more possibilities. It's just that it's not as pink as before, but its more interesting." "I am trying to make my accent so it won't bother anyone, but I am not going to drive myself crazy trying to pretend I am an American girl when I am from Colombia."
-Shakira Most of her songs are influenced
from Indian themes or from the Arab culture.

She also opened a new $6-million school in her hometown Barranquilla, which was sponsored by herself and her Pies Descalzos Foundation. "I'm lucky to have family around me. Otherwise, I'll be taking the risk of falling in love with myself. But there are always people close to me who I trust, who will scold me and pull my ears if I need it. Fame isolates people from reality. That happens to many artists, and I don't want it to happen to me."
-Shakira She had also worked with President Barack
Obama, which she was appointed as a member of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. Shakira is also very hardworking capable of being a workaholic in order to achieve her long-range goals.

Most of her time is dedicated to singing and dancing, or working with her family and helping out her foundation. Now, her U.S. album sales stand at 9.6 million. "I think that that's why I am probably a romantic and a passionate person. But I also have a very disciplined side, very disciplined and very demanding. Sometimes my sense of responsibility is my worst torturer."
