Samantha Power To Be 2015 Commencement Speaker

Yes it’s true, this year’s commencement speaker will be the one and only Samantha Power aka the United States Ambassador to the U.N. aka QUITE the gal. A quick Google search will show the absurd amount of accolades she has, and reveal that she is the ORIGINAL strong, independent woman/the overachiever we all aspire to be. Not only is she an advocate for just about everyone’s rights (for the best), but also she went to Yale and Harvard and she chose to speak at PENN (that’s equal to a win in football, right?). In all seriousness, while inevitably people will cry because John Legend isn’t coming back, this is awesome news. And just LOOK at her pout! Approved.
