Before anything else, I just want to get this out of the way: #Rihanna2020. That is all. I know she's not American, but since we've been repeatedly bending the rules to cater to the agenda of certain politicians anyway, surely we can make an exception for the natural-born citizen clause? Just saying.
While Rihanna is not dominating the music charts, she's continuing her crusade to advocate for education. Earlier this year, she traveled to Malawi to teach kids math and raise money for the organization she's an ambassador for, the Global Partnership for Education. A month after, Harvard named her Humanitarian of the Year. And now, she went on a tweeting spree not to her fans, but to world leaders, urging them to increase funding for education.
The "Work" singer tweeted the likes of French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Argentina's Mauricio Macri, and Germany's Steffen Seibert.
And because she's Rihanna, the world leaders actually responded saying they've got her back!
Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is a multi-stakeholder partnership and funding platform that aims to strengthen education systems in developing countries. GPE's vision is to have inclusive, equitable quality education for all by 2030. As their ambassador, Rihanna has made the commitment to encourage world leaders and policymakers to elevate their initiatives towards improving education.
“I feel strongly that all children everywhere should be afforded the opportunity of a quality education. Therefore I'm proud to announce Clara Lionel Foundation's partnership with education advocacy leaders like the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen. Working together, I know we can amplify our efforts and ensure that millions of children gain access to education globally," said Rihanna.
It's clear that Rihanna is 100% dedicated to boosting the support for education with her bold and public move to get the attention of world leaders. Hey, it's not every day that we see celebrities use their huge platform to advocate for essential causes. You go, girl!
