J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement
Docs & Non-Fiction
[ 20:59 - from Vimeo ]
J.K. Rowling is perhaps the most successful female author of all-time. She has forever altered pop-culture with her Harry Potter series. In her commencement speech at Harvard, she speaks of the benefits of failure and the value of imagination. To think a woman this rich and lauded has ever seen a glimpse of poverty is incredible enough, but to realize that if she had not, Harry would have never been born, is truly inspiring. This video is a must watch for anyone with a dream...which is pretty much everyone.
