Rihanna Delivers Inspiring Acceptance Speech At Harvard University


“All you need to do is help one person, expecting nothing in return.”

Bad gal Rih Rih isn’t very bad at all. The 29-year-old pop star received the 2017 Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year award, delivering a flawless speech that highlighted her philanthropy and motivation to give back.

“And I would think to myself like, I wonder how many 25 cents I could save up to save all the kids in Africa. And I would say to myself you know, ‘when I grow up, when I can get rich, I’mma save kids all over the world.’ I just didn’t know I would be in the position to do that by the time I was a teenager. [Laughs]”

Rocking a Monse Fall ’17 dress, the pop star glowed as she embraced the crowd & humbly accepted their token of appreciation. She also made a call- to- action, urging everyone in attendance to be humanitarians too!
