Colombian superstar Shakira gave a talk about her charity work in the English university city of Oxford this week.

The singer used the opportunity to stress her belief in education for everyone on the planet.

“That is how I want the youth of 2060 to see us: That our mission for global peace consisted of sending 30,000 educators to Afghanistan, not 30,000 soldiers,” she told the 400 students who attended the talk. "That in 2010, world education became more important than world domination. I strongly believe that the best is yet to come. I cannot subscribe to the idea that the older days were better days.

“We have the resources to feed the people several times over, but why are children starving? We need to find more ways to distribute food. And education is our ticket.”
