Beyoncé Knowles is an entertainer, mother, partner, daughter, sister, icon, philanthropist, and so much more. On Saturday, she delivered a powerful commencement address focused on empowerment, economic and social justice, and self-determination. After listening to it, I immediately shared it with my two daughters, and now, I want to share it with you. #GirlDadForLife ENJOY
