Rihanna was honoured by Harvard with the Humanitarian of the Year award this week. If you didn’t know, she’s done a ton of charity work throughout her career including building a state of the are breast cancer research and treatment facility in her native Barbados.
One of the sweetest moments out of the ceremony was this moment between her and a very young fan (seriously, how many times did he practice saying ‘philanthropy’ before this moment).
And If you have a few minutes to watch her full speech, do it. She totally nailed it. She starts around the 2:20 mark.
