Media mogul Oprah Winfrey spoke to the Class of 2017 on Saturday in Atlanta.
She told the new graduates of Agnes Scott College to empathize with others - especially those on the other side of the political divide.
Oprah said, 'It's possible. It can happen. I want you to work in your own way to change the world in respectful conversations with others. 'I want you to enter every situation aware of its context, open to hear the truth of others and most important, open to letting the process of changing the world change you. That is the spirit of constructive engagement.'
The tv legend also made time to poke fun at herself - and her extensive shoe collection.
Oprah said, 'If I can leave you with any message today: the biggest reward is not financial benefits - though it's really good, you can get a lot of great shoes.'Those of you who have a lot of shoes know having a closet full of shoes doesn't fill up your life. Living a life of substance can. Substance through your service.'
