Rihanna at Harvard Receiving their Humanitarian of the Year Award 2017

Rihanna was given a humanitarian award at Harvard yesterday.  She spoke about having the desire to help out the less fortunate as a child, and because she was lucky enough to have a successful career at a young age, she started her first charity at the age of 18.  

This is a video of the entire ceremony, but you can skip to 40 min 45 sec if you want to just see Rihanna speaking.  She was beautiful, and gracious, and humble in her speech.  

Keep watching after her speech for the adorable boy who comes on stage to give her flowers.
