American TV host Oprah Winfrey received a Doctor of Laws degree from America’s prestigious Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on Thursday.

The talk show host wore a traditional cap and gown as she took to the stage to deliver a speech to graduates, Contactmusic reported. “Oh my goodness. I’m at Harvard! Not too many girls from rural Mississippi have made it all the way here to Cambridge,” Winfrey declared. The 59-year-old told the Class of 2013 that they have a chance to better their life.
