Recounting the Memories of the Past
Shakira a world renowned singer from Colombia in 2007 spent her summer time attending classes in History of Civilisation at the University of California, Los Angeles. A source said: ” while everyone else has been at the beach, the MTV Awards and the Emmys, Shakira’s been studying History of Western Civilisation all summer at UCLA.” The professor who taught her in the class had no idea who Shakira was and asked her why she was doing this, she responded for “my own enlightenment and enjoyment.”
It is quite inspiring to know that no matter how famous you are (as Shakira is), education is very important in life. Possibly, she chooses History and not other subject because she wanted to become a better person by learning from the past. I bet her investment in studying History will pay her off in the future and inspire her to produce more touching yet record-breaking songs.
