“Fast and the Furious” actor Vin Diesel recently got honored with a PhD by Hunter College.
Vin Diesel who had attended the school but dropped out three years later, during the ceremony spoke on how proud he had always been of the College.
Read part of his speach below;
‘while I was in Hollywood I always had this pride of Hunter College. I would tell everybody that I learned and took so much away from my experience at Hunter College: I was young, I was a bouncer, when I wasn’t bouncing I was in these classrooms with the most diverse student body on the planet. We’re strivers. We can overcome anything. You learn that here and you take into the world. And then you can look at Hollywood and change the face of Hollywood. You can literally change the face of Hollywood because of that dignity and pride and willingness to fight’.
