Taylor Swift Will Still Be Honoured With Ripples Of Hope Award
Even though Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy are no longer an item, she will still be honoured with the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights’ Ripple of Hope Award.
Since Swift and Kennedy began dating, many were of the belief that their relationship caused Swift to be chosen to accept the award. However, this was not the case and the foundation’s president Kerry Kennedy squashed the rumours telling press that she was chosen because of her work.
She said: “What strikes me most about Taylor is the work she does away from the spotlight — her leadership in the movement for arts education, her generosity to communities devastated by natural disaster and especially the compassion she’s shown as a proud defender against bullying and LGBTI discrimination. As my father Robert Kennedy said to the students of South Africa in 1966, our world’s hope rests with our youth.”
Swift will be honoured at the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights’ Ripple of Hope Awards Dinner on December 3rd at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.
Meanwhile, sources report that their breakup was also due to Kennedy’s lack of schoolwork during their relationship. A source told the New York Post’s Page Six: “Conor has gone back to school, and the deans at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts are not happy about him jetting around with Taylor. He was due to attend an awards ceremony with her at the end of the summer, but the school chiefs put the kibosh on it. He can’t just leave school to be with her at every point.”
