Shakira What can we say about the most famous Colombiana in the world? Shakira, who was born and raised in Baranquilla, wears her Colombian pride on her sleeve. Aside from representing Colombia all over the world with her immense talent, Shaki has also given back to her native country. In 1995, she founded the Pies Descalzos Foundation, a Colombian charity that provides education and meals for 4000 children.
John Leguizamo Most people think that actor and stand-up comic John Leguizamo is Puerto Rican, but in an interview with Spanish newspaper "El Diario" last year, John's estranged father said that John is 100% Colombian. "My intention is to clear up this situation with my son John," Leguizamo's father, Alberto Leguizamo, said. "We are not Puerto Rican. I was born in Colombia and don't have any family in Puerto Rico."
