Rihanna Accepts Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year Award

Published: Wednesday 1st Mar 2017 by David

When she isn’t dominating many a playlist with her infectious brand of Urban Pop, Rihanna can be found changing the world via her humanitarian efforts.

So, in honour of her contributions to society, she received Harvard’s 2017 Humanitarian of the Year award.

I’m incredibly humbled by this. To be acknowledged at this magnitude, for something that, in truth, I’ve never wanted credit for.

Watch below…

We’re all human.We all just want a chance, a chance at life, a chance at an education, a chance at a future, really. At CLF [Clara Lionel Foundation], our mission is to impact as many lives as possible, but it starts with just one. Just one. As I stare out into this beautiful room, I see optimism, I see hope, I see the future. I know that each and every one of you has the opportunity to help someone else. All you need to do is help one person, expecting nothing in return. To me, that is a humanitarian.

    Congrats queen Rih, she never proclaimed herself FEMINIST but she really is one, after all it’s something obvious.

    A very humble person and it’s something you can’t fake for that long !

    • Baddiebeymyfav March 1, 2017

      You filthy maggots can never congratulate your fav without throwing shade Beyoncé’s way. You punks are the reason why Trhihoe gets dragged to oblivion mercilessly. Smfh

      • SMH March 1, 2017

        And that’s the roach’s nest problem right there. Fashion Icon never mentioned beyonce, yet your guilty conscience compelled you to make that comment. A nerve of truth must have been struck in your pitiful little mind.

      That’s so true.

  6. Blackkupid March 1, 2017

    Baby girl stays winning even with all the hate and industry snubs and manipulation. What they fail to understand is she transcends beyond the music industry. She is a true star, a movement, a global figure.
    With all the roadblocks and negativity that gets thrown at her to be bring her down, she has managed to stay on top, winning and shinning like a true star. Harvard status baby!

    “All you need to do is help one person, expecting nothing in return. To me, that is a humanitarian.” She added, “What that little girl watching those commercials didn’t know is that you don’t have to be rich to be a humanitarian, you don’t have to be rich to help somebody. You don’t have to be famous, you don’t even have to be college educated. But it starts with your neighbor… you just do whatever you can to help in any way that you can.”
