Diddy Made A Special Stop at Howard University
It was a moment that had the audience screaming in praise and joyfulness. During his Bad Boy Reunion Tour stop in D.C., Diddy stopped by his alma mater, Howard University to drop off a significant gift.
And it was done in such Diddy style. Watch below.
Talk about giving back! The $1M donation will go toward creating the Sean Combs scholarship to further nurture the next generation of leaders and influencers.
If you’ve ever found yourself asking how Diddy keeps business evolving and relevant, the music mogul accredits that to his education at Howard as he mentioned in his Instagram post.
I was blessed to receive a great education from Howard University! It helped to fuel my success in business and life. This scholarship will make it possible for the next generation of leaders to pursue their dreams and achieve greatness! When I delivered the commencement address at Howard, I asked the students “Do you know how powerful you are?” I know that Howard students are intelligent, talented, passionate, and their hard work will shape the future. This gift will make sure the whole world knows what they are capable of doing!!
In 2014, Diddy delivered the commencement speech where he also received a Doctor of Humanities Honorary Degree.
During his speech, he issued a variety of gems and offered a lasting message: “Remember the power of you.”
Watch the full speech below.
This goes to show that dreams and what you put out into this world, is bigger and much deeper than self and personal gain. What imprint will leave on the world?
