Taylor Swift Receives Doctorate From NYU

Taylor Swift is steadily building a phenomenal life for herself. She just doesn’t stop. She records hit songs and wins awards while living her best life. Now, she has a doctorate from NYU.

In her commencement speech, she made a few jokes because, after all, she is Taylor Swift, “I would like to thank NYU for technically making me a doctor, not the type of doctor you would want around in case of emergency.”

It is an Honorary Doctorate, which means she didn’t actually attend classes to earn it. But Honorary Doctorates are given to people who have contributed significantly to a field or society in general. For that, I know Taylor Swift has earned it.

First of all, I think she is a wonderful role model for ladies. In a world that is still dominated by men, pay gaps still exist, and respect is often not given, she has a way of fighting through it all and shining with grace. Take her legal battles, for example, she has gone up against the big guys and has fought her way through, coming out smelling like a rose.

That’s Taylor Swift! And that’s why ladies should look up to her.

But she really is a role model for everyone. She is the perfect example of how to enjoy life and make the most of it. She is the perfect example of how to stand up for yourself. She does everything with class, and just because she became a star at such an early age, that didn’t mean that she could shun everything else. She valued her education. She values the rights of others, and she fights for those rights whether they have a voice or not.

The award-winning singer didn’t get to attend her junior or senior year because she was home-schooled. So, she didn’t get to do the graduation walk when she earned her degree. This was her first time.

Taylor Swift wore the gown on stage and was cheered by about 20,000 people. I’m sure it was to capacity. And then, she gave a speech, which was elegant and sophisticated. What else would you expect of a doctor?

Great words, but with a sense of humor, “As long as we are fortunate enough to be breathing, we will breathe in, breathe through, breathe deep and breathe out. I am a doctor now, so I know how breathing works.”
