Video of the Week - A Poehlerized Graduation Commencement Speech at Harvard


Every Sunday on Connect Magazine, we share a video that in our considered opinion, presents something of value, or profoundly entertains you and makes your day. After all, Sunday is the day when many of us unwind in preparation for a new week with its attendant challenges.

We have in the past featured Graduation speeches (aka a commencement address). From the adorable Chimamanda Adichie, the ever inspiring J.K. Rowling and Kenyan media mogul S.K. Macharia.




Today's weekly video is by actress Amy Poehler. She addressed the graduating class of 2011 at Harvard University, giving a speech that was both hilarious and profound.
Watch the entire speech below:



The full text of Amy's speech is available on the Harvard Magazine web site, and here.
