Rihanna becomes Harvard's Humanitarian of the Year


Rihanna has been named Harvard University's Humanitarian of the Year at a ceremony on Feb. 28 in Memorial Hall’s Sanders Theatre.. The award is to recognise the singer's contribution to society. S. Allen Counter, the Harvard Foundation's Director says, 
"Rihanna has charitably built a state-of-the-art centre 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 and Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program [named for her grandmother and grandfather] for students attending college in the US from Caribbean countries."

Recall that RiRi launched the Global Citizen education initiative in 2016 and topped Billboard's chart recently.

This is worthy of emulation. Congrats to her.
