The recognition was dedicated especially to his mother Nidia del Carmen, whom he described as a resilient woman.
“Despite the difficulties you have faced this year, you are still standing, with your boundless love, and resilience. For me mommy you have been the woman of the year ”, expressed an emotional Shakira.
But she also addressed all women with a powerful speech of female empowerment. “Let’s celebrate the Year of the Woman”, encouraged.
The interpreter affirmed that she has lived a year of “seismic changes in her life”, in which she has felt more than ever and firsthand what it means to be a woman. “We are braver than we think we are. I think we’re also more independent than we were taught to be.” stated.
His speech increasingly directed him to his personal situation. “Which woman hasn’t ever had the experience of seeking the attention, affection or approval of another, she has forgotten herself? It has happened to me, more than once ”, confessed.
“But there also comes a time in the life of every woman, in which one no longer depends on someone to end up loving or accepting oneself as it is”, continuous.
“There is a moment in a woman’s life, when the search for the other is replaced by the search for oneself. There comes a time in a woman’s life when the desire we have to be perfect is replaced by the desire to be authentic.”
And when someone least expected it, he launched his “splash” at the alleged infidelity that his ex-partner, Gerard Piqué committed in the middle of their more than 12 years of relationship. “It doesn’t matter so much if someone is faithful or not, what really matters is if you continue to be faithful to yourself,” she said.
