Nicki Minaj surprised more than 400 students and acted as the “Principal for the Day” at Collins Academy High School in Chicago yesterday. She presented three exemplary students each with $10,000 college scholarships from Comcast, helped teach a freshman English class, and joined MTV’s Sway Calloway in an all-school assembly to celebrate the students’ and teachers’ accomplishments.
“I am a young, female mogul before I am an artist. As a business woman there isn’t a single day where I don’t use my education or acquire new knowledge to ensure my success. Regardless of where you are today, with education you can take yourself where you want to be. That’s why I am working with the Get Schooled Foundation. They are finding innovative and exciting ways to bring that message to schools like the Collins Academy.”
