Amy Poehler has a pretty special place in my heart, largely because Leslie Knope is my spirit animal, but also because Poehler is wise and fearless, and she is never afraid to speak her mind.



Have you ever Googled "Best Amy Poehler Quotes?" Not only does she have two BuzzFeed  posts dedicated to her wise and honest words, but there are tons of other round-ups of her advice to the world - because it really is that poignant and amazing. 

So, it's no surprise that she gives awesome speeches, too. 




Her speech at Harvard's College Class Day in 2011 is 15 minutes of proof that Poehler can expertly mix funny and serious, layer intelligent jokes with meaningful advice, and leave an audience with stirrings in their minds and hearts. Take the time to watch her address below.
