Rihanna Meets with French President Emmanuel Macron!

Rihanna is a global ambassador for the Global Partnership for Education, as well as founder of the Clara Lionel Foundation, a nonprofit organization that funds education and health programs for impoverished communities across the globe. She, however, announced that there would be more work and projects for Africa this October.

Rihanna first tweeted at Macron in June, asking if France would commit to #FundEducation.

Rihanna and President Macron's meeting comes a month after the singer reached out him and other global leaders on Twitter.

That's what she did Wednesday in Paris, where she dropped in to meet French President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron. Grinning, she told reporters after their meeting that the Macrons were "incredibly welcoming", and she had "just had the most incredible meeting with the president of France and First Lady". "We focused on the topic of education from global aspects".

She did not reveal whether Mr Macron had made a pledge to her fund, but said she was "so inspired and impressed" with his leadership.

"We focused on the topic of education from a global aspect and we'll have a very big announcement in September, during United Nations week", she added. "I can't wait for you guys to hear where this is going to go".

President Emmanuel Macron said on Twitter after the pair met in Paris that he is "committed" to help address the challenge of 264 million children being out of school.
