One of the most popular and recognizable singers in the world, Shakira, 43, decided to make use of her quarantine time and work on expanding her horizons.
As the coronavirus pandemic isolated us in our homes, we cannot do the things we once could. Therefore, people have to make use of their time the best way they can. Some binge watch movies, some work out, while others, like Shakira, educate themselves.
The Colombian stunner completed a 4-week online course in Ancient Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. She shared the amazing news with her fans on multiple social media platforms.

I just graduated from my 4 week Ancient Philosophy course with the University of Pennsylvania (@uofpenn).

Acabo de graduarme de un curso de filosofía antigua. Ya sé que mis hobbies no son prácticos pero me tomó horas después de poner a dormir a los niños. Gracias a Platón, sus predecesores y a la Universidad de Pennsylvania por la “diversión” de estas 4 semanas!
