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,Β 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.”
