Shakira was the protagonist at the 2023 Youth Awards, where she was the winner of eight categories, in addition to receiving recognition Change agent for his altruistic work with the most needy children in Colombia.

Accompanied by her children Milan and Sasha, the singer was very emotional during the night, since she received the special award for the work of her Pies Descalzos foundation, at which time she also offered a beautiful speech focused on her collaborators in the association for the great work they do, but she also had nice words for her children.

"Today that Milan and Sasha are here accompanying me, which is a great joy for me, I want my children to understand that to be a change agent you don't have to be a female pop star, you don't have to have a foundation, you don't have to be a politician or even occupy a place of power or be famous or rich, to be a change agent you just have to differentiate what is good from what is bad," were some of his words.

However, the most exciting moment for everyone was when she received the Best Pop/Urban Song award for 'Shakira: Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53' amid cheers from her fans who gathered at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in Puerto Rico and when the Colombian was also notified that she had been the most successful night.

Shakira took the time to greet her closest fans on stage and then took the microphone to thank them for all their support. "You don't know how happy I am to return to this island that I adore, to meet all of you and to receive all of this, truly thank you", was how his speech began.

“It is true that as an artist I have had the immense luck of working with a great record label, to which I am very grateful, of collaborating with great producers and artists, but my greatest luck is to have the fans that I have. Every day you inspire me to improve myself and not give up. The truth is that when I had doubts about myself, you made me believe in myself again."was another part of the gratitude of the Colombian.
