Shakira Receives Medal From the United Nations

Shakira isn't just sexy and talented, she's a do gooder too! Shakira just received a medal from the United Nations for all the work she's done with impoverished children.

Shakira was presented with the Social Justice for Peace award at a small ceremony in Switzerland yesterday.

Geneva's UN labor chief Juan Somavia described Shakira as a “true ambassador for children and young people, for quality education and social justice."

Upon receiving the accolade Shakira thanked the UN and said, "It's not too late to keep our promise to our children, but we must act now. Together, we can make education and decent work for all a reality."

Kudos to Shakira for all the hard work and time she's put into her foundation and helping children in need. She's truly a great role model!
