Oprah Winfrey has pretty much everything one could ever want and today she can add a Harvard PhD to her list of accolades.
The media mogul received an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree at 2013 Harvard University during the 362nd Commencement at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Oprah also landed an honorary doctorate degree from the University of the Free State in South Africa back in 2011.
Lady O was the speaker for this year’s graduating class, delivering a moving and inspiring commencement speech to Harvard students, alumni, faculty, community and new graduates this afternoon.
“Oh my goodness, I’m at Harvard!”; shouted Oprah at the start of her speech. “I thank you for allowing me to be a part of the conclusion of this chapter of your lives and to commence the beginning of your next chapter.”;
Oprah reflected on her humble upbringing and how far she’s come in her life: “A little girl from Mississippi making it all the way to Cambridge… my hope today is that I can be a source of inspiration.”;
And she closed with some wise words of advice for the new Harvard grads: “If you’re willing to listen to that small voice called the inner GPS… you will be happy, successful and you will make a difference in the world.”
