Nicki Minaj isn’t just the queen of rap; she’s apparently the queen of charitable donations.
According to The Cut, the rapper recently took to Instagram to reveal photos and videos of a village in India she has “been donating money to for the past few years through her pastor Lydia Sloley.”
Minaj shared in her posts that her generosity has helped to provide the village with “a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS,” says The Cut, writing that she’s telling of her charitable missions in case her fans would like to join in her efforts.
These Instagram posts follow her recent Twitter donation spree, in which she helped students with their tuition and student loans and is leading to the creation of a charity specifically for students.
We can’t wait to see what Minaj does next!
Each country seems to have a national hero when the Olympics rolls around, and for India, Dipa Karmakar is the one to watch this year in Rio de Janeiro.
According to NBC, Karmakar has “become the first female gymnast from India to make the Olympics,” posting an all-around score of 52.968 in April during the final Olympic qualifying event.
After the first qualifying events of the Games in Rio, the Times of India reports that the 22-year-old athlete qualified for the individual vault finals in her Olympic debut, placing eighth in the qualifying round.
NBC says Karmakar is a “vault specialist,” coming in fifth in the vault finals at the 2015 world championships. But in the Indian national championships, NBC reports that Karmakar ” the all-around and all four apparatus titles … in 2011, 2013 and 2015.”
