Christina Aguilera says that although she went to Rwanda to help others, she ended up helping herself.

Aguilera has been a spokesperson for Yum! Brands' World Hunger Relief effort since 2009, and has also traveled to Haiti and Guatemala. She said being a mother — she has a 5-year-old son Max — made her feel more empathetic for those suffering from hunger around the world.

"It's so sad to think there's nothing that sets any of us apart," she said. "And when you go into the field, you really see that and feel that we're all one in the same, it's just we're born under different circumstances, and it's sad and I don't understand why, but I feel what I feel and I did what I can."
