Rihanna has many achievements to her name, but one that we might not have expected is humanitarian of the year. However, it seems as though the performer does much more than what we see on stage. She has been named Harvard University’s 2017 Humanitarian of the Year for her charitable work. In case you did not know, Rihanna, has built a state of the art medical facility for cancer research in Barbados, as well as acts as an ambassador for global charities. The pop star has said in the past how important giving back is and the responsibility she feels to do so.
