Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta headed to Harvard University this week for the launch of their Born This Way Foundation.
The Born This Way Foundation is a non-profit charitable organisation addressing youth issues such as self-confidence, well-being and anti-bullying.
The event opened with Oprah Winfrey interviewing Gaga about the Foundation.
“The culture of love is not going to change overnight but youth are the answer to creating a braver, kinder world,” said Lady Gaga. “This might be one of the best days of my life.”
Lady Gaga has contributed $1.2 million to the running of the foundation.
“Like everything my daughter has done, this is a grassroots initiative asking for the response of the community to help build this movement and shape it,” said Cynthia Germanotta. “Therefore a safe and trusted online community will allow users to share stories about themselves and their lives. Supporters can draw courage from the words of others as they explore Born This Way Foundation’s online community.”
