Shakira’s charity, Pies Descalzos Foundation, has given thousands of impoverished children education throughout Colombia, her native country. President Obama has also appointed her to his Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. Gerard Piqué is one of the world’s most decorated soccer stars with multiple championships to his name, while playing for FC Barçelona and the Spanish National Team.
