Rihanna sits with French President Macron to discuss Girls Education



Pop star Rihanna in support of her Clara Lionel Foundation met with the French President Emmanuel Macron to discuss education.

Macron shared a photo on Twitter of the two of them sitting to talk, with the caption:

Committed with @ GlblCtzn , @ ClaraLionelFdn and @ rihanna to # FundEducation . 264M children are out of school: let’s take up this challenge!

Rihanna, in a press briefing after the meeting, said the French President was incredibly welcoming.

She added that a big announcement is coming during the UN week in September, and her foundation is planning on embarking on more work in Africa in October.

She also shared a post on Twitter after the meeting saying:

Thank you Mr. President @EmmanuelMacron and Madame First Lady for the incredible meeting and passion for global and girls education! ??

She had been reaching out to world leaders through her twitter for a while now, once urging her over 70 million followers to tweet at Canadian President Justin Trudeau until he responded to her saying: “We’ve got your back.”

      If she did not, I doubt she missed out. She is doing better than most who did. Riri is da boss. But haters gonna hate.

      silly question. School or not, she is bringing awareness to a cause. Something you are not doing

      Whilst reading this headline, I knew some nit-wit was going to ask this stupid question. You didn’t disappoint me @PEN

      Going to school is not for everyone as we can clearly see for Rihanna. -it wasn’t for her. However that doesn’t mean that she would not encourage young girls to go to school and get an education.

      Ignorance….long sigh.
