Awesome! Congrats to Rihanna!

She was named Harvard University’s 2017 Humanitarian of the year yesterday.
Back in 2012, she founded the Clara Lionel Foundation which helps disadvantaged communities around the world.
She traveled to Malawi on behalf of the foundation to meet with government officials, students, teachers and mentors too.

The Director of the Harvard Foundations S. Allen Counter said “Rihanna has charitably built a state-of-the-art center for oncology and nuclear medicine to diagnose and treat breast cancer at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados. She has also created the Clara Lionel Foundation Scholarship for students attending college in the U.S. from Caribbean countries, and supports the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, a multiyear campaign that will provide children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls and those affected by lack of access to education in the world today.”
The award honors “prominent public-spirited leaders whose works and deeds have served to improve the quality of our lives and have inspired us to greater heights.”

Dee Garcia grew up in South Texas in a tight knit family of five. Your typical Girls-Girl, Dee loves shopping, shoes, purses, home decor, fluffy "chick lit," Scandal, and her dogs! Dee knew she wanted to do something a bit different with her life. She was always a music and radio lover and in 2007, she became the Morning Show Co-Host at KBFM Wild 104. After falling in love with radio and graduating from college in 2009, Dee moved to Boise, Idaho for a chance to work at KWYD Wild 101; in 2011 she moved across the country yet again to do afternoons on WWKX Hot 106 in Rhode Island. Finally in 2012, she moved to Phoenix where she began to work on KEXX My 103.9. In August, 2013 Dee began her role as Morning Show Co-Host on Power 98.3. An Arizonian at heart, Dee is ecstatic to be doing what she loves--morning radio--in an amazing city. Dee not only brings a vibrant, positive, and sassy personality to the Gello and Dee in the Morning Show, she prides herself in being engaging, humorous, vocal, topical and relatable.
