Maya Rudolph, the hilarious actress and comedian known for her 10 years on “Saturday Night Live” with impersonation of Beyonce’, Oprah Winfrey and more recently, her hilarious take on former NAACP chapter president Rachel Dezell, was recently the keynote speaker for her alma mater, Tulane University. The funny mother of four and daughter of legendary singer Minnie Riperton shares what she learned from life and her mom.
On embarking on adult life:
“From this day forward the world is filled with endless possibilities. You’re young, you’re in your twenties. This is a great day for all of you. Except for those of you leaving college with any student loan debt. I don’t know what to say to you. I hope you win the lottery.
On how to live a good life:
“So hold on to your old friends. Kiss your Mama. Admit what your dreams are. Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t know what you’re gonna do tomorrow. But work hard and don’t be lazy. And put away your damn phone once in a while. And be nice to jerks because we still don’t know the criteria for getting into heaven yet.”
