Oh my goodness! I'm at Harvard! Wow!


To President Faust, my fellow honor ands, Carl, that was so beautiful, thank you so much, and James Rothenberg, Stephanie Wilson, Harvard faculty with a special bow to my friend Dr. Henry Lewis Gates.

尊敬的Faust校长、和我一起获得荣誉学位的各位,Carl(注:Carl Muller哈佛校友会主席),真是太棒了,谢谢你们!还有James Rothenberg,Stephanie Wilson和哈佛的教职工们,特别感谢我的朋友Henry Lewis Gates博士(注:美国知名黑人教授)!

All of you alumni with a special bow to the class of '88, your hundred fifteen million dollars. And to you, members of the Harvard class of 2013! Hello!


I thank you for allowing me to be a part of the conclusion of this chapter of your lives and the commencement of your next chapter.


To say that I'm honored doesn't even begin to quantify the depth of gratitude that really accompanies an honorary doctorate from Harvard.


Not too many little girls from rural Mississippi have made it all the way here to Cambridge.


And I can tell you that I consider today as I sat on the stage this morning getting teary for you all and then teary for myself, I consider today a defining milestone in a very long and a blessed journey.


My one hope today is that I can be a source of some inspiration.


I'm going to address my remarks to anybody who has ever felt inferior or felt disadvantaged, felt screwed by life, this is a speech for the quad.


Actually I was so honored I wanted to do something really special for you.


I wanted to be able to have you look under your seats and there would be free master and doctor degrees but I see you got that covered already.


I will be honest with you. I felt a lot of pressure over the past few weeks to come up with something that I could share with you that you hadn't heard before because after all you all went to Harvard, I did not.


But then I realized that you don't have to necessarily go to Harvard to have a driven obsessive Type A personality. But it helps.


And while I may not have graduated from here I admit that my personality is about as Harvard as they come.


You know my television career began unexpectedly.


As you heard this morning I was in the Miss Fire Prevention contest.


That was when I was 16 years old in Nashville, Tennessee and you had the requirement of having to have red hair in order to win up until the year that I entered.


So they were doing the question and answer period because I knew I wasn't going to win under the swimsuit competition.


So during the question and answer period the question came "Why, young lady, what would you like to be when you grow up?"


And by the time they got to me all the good answers were gone.
