"Governor General Michaelle Jean is headed to the United Nations, CTV News has learned.
Jean will be appointed special envoy for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, CTV's Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife reported Monday night.
"Her main goal is to fight poverty and Haiti's appallingly high illiteracy (rate)," Fife said. "She'll not only spend time in Haiti, but also travel the globe to keep the world's eyes focused on Haiti and to raise funds."
The prime minister "went to bat to get her this high-profile job," which starts in late September, Fife said.
UNESCO, as the agency is known, has a broad mandate.
"UNESCO's mission is to contribute to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication and information," says a statement on the agency's website.
Canada is one of 182 member states to have a permanent delegation with the organization."

Wardrobe Chic: Kelly Rowland Elle Magazine July 2010

Kelly Rowland featured in Elle Magazine July 2010  "A beautiful songstress with an eye for rich style, Kelly Rowland loves seeking out new fashions. Whether she is jetting across the world in comfortable garb or performing onstage in a skintight minidress, this star chooses only the best in design. Having matured from the days of coordinated costumes with Destiny’s Child, and even co-hosting a fashion-based reality-TV show, Kelly has found her own appreciation for designers, style, and trends. “I like to see what I have first, see what everyone else is doing, and then I put my own shake on stuff so it’s my own,” she reveals. We catch Kelly in town from Miami to show us her favorite wardrobe pieces." via{elle}&{spicedbeauty}
