Karol G’s Foundation Launches “The Calm Corner”

In honor of Mental Health Month, Karol G‘s “Con Cora Foundation” launched its new initiative “Rincón de la Calma” (The Calm Corner). The project, in partnership with Glasswing International, will establish safe and private spaces within educational institutions in Latin American cities including Guatemala City, Guatemala; San Salvador, El Salvador; San José, Costa Rica; and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

“This initiative arises from the need to provide students with tools to manage the impact of stress and trauma on physical health, as well as their ability to manage emotions, behaviors, and learning,” Valentina Bueno, executive director of the Con Cora Foundation, said in a press statement. “We are proud to join forces with Glasswing International in creating these spaces that foster an environment of mutual support and personal growth in the educational sphere.”

Joaquina’s Sweet Fan Encounter

Earlier this week, Joaquina — best new artist at the 2023 Latin Grammy — shared a sweet encounter she had with a fan in Spain. In a video posted on Instagram, she explained that her fan’s parents DM’ed her asking her to visit their restaurant, where they wanted to surprise their daughter on her 10th birthday with a visit from the Venezuelan singer. Without hesitation, Joaquina accepted and documented the wholesome moment. “I love you so much Cami,” the artist captioned the pic. “Thank you and your beautiful family for having me 😭 This made me very happy (btw the cake was delicious).”
