There are so many things to love about Ciara. Not only is the 30-year-old singer crazy talented and an amazing mother but she’s also devoted to giving back. This week I met with her to help pack some lunches for hungry children in New York City as a part of her Share a Meal partnership with Unilever. “This campaign is important to me for so many reasons. Growing up you see all these commercials on TV and normally you think child hunger is happening in Third World countries, but really one in every five American children is facing hunger,” she says. “Now being a mom, I connect to this even deeper. I couldn’t imagine if my child couldn’t have a meal.” While helping pack some awesome meals for kids in need, I also got the chance to grill Ciara about—what else?—her beauty routine.
