Barbadian singer and songwriter #Rihanna is very active in her role as an ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education and Global CItizen, two humanitarian organizations. Her most recent stop was France, where she met with #French President #emmanuel macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron on Wednesday at Elysee Palace.

Rihanna's meeting with the French President and First Lady

The meeting took place as a result of a tweet by the 29-year-old singer last month, in which she asked the French President if he would like to support her education initiatives. The 29-year-old singer, who was dressed in an oversized Christian Dior suit and silver stilettos was greeted by the first lady, Brigitte Macron, who donned a jacket paired with jeans and her signature heels.

While talking with journalists after her meeting with the French President, Rihanna termed the one-to-one as "most incredible" and said that they discussed the "global aspects" of education, adding that "we will make a very big announcement this coming September," without giving any further details. She, however, announced that there would be more work and projects for Africa this October.

After her meeting, she tweeted the French President to thank him and his wife for their acknowledgement.

Rihanna also approached leaders of Canada and Argentina

The "This Is What You Came For" singer has been working hard to gather the support of international leaders as far as financing such education programs, especially the ones that target girls in third world countries around the globe.

She has also used her Twitter account to approach and seek the collaboration of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri. Just last month, Rihanna went to Malawi, a third world country in Africa, to promote an improved education system.

Rihanna's Clara and Lionel Foundation

In the beginning of 2017, the popular singer was presented with Harvard University's Humanitarian of the Year award. Rihanna, who is one of the best-selling artists of all-time, founded the Clara and Lionel Foundation, a non-profit organization, back in 2012. The foundation aims to help students from the Caribbean that want to pursue higher education in the United States. The foundation also supports certain education initiatives in her native country, Barbados.
