Giving a speech after accepting his degree, Pitbull said “I remember being kicked out of a public school because I didn’t have the right address. That’s why I want better schools for the kids who live where I grew up.”
He went on to say “That’s why Doral Academy was founded, and that’s why I helped create SLAM (Sports Leadership and Management Academy) in the neighborhood where I grew up – a school that offers a choice for students, like me, students who need someone to inspire them, someone to believe in them.”
Pitbull, real name Armando Christian Pérez, is reportedly the first ever recipient of an honorary degree from Doral College.
