Kerry Washington’s flashback when she mastered fine Arts go Dr Kerry!

 

A hearty congratulations: Kerry delivered a rousing  speech to graduates after the national anthem

Earning a doctorate is one of the most  difficult feats in academia.

So no wonder Kerry Washington was smiling  after being made an honorary doctor of fines arts in Washington on  Sunday.

The Scandal star looked as proud as punch as she delivered an inspiring address to students upon receipt of her gong.

Raring to go: The Scandal star looked excited as she got  readyto address the crowd below

Frog in her throat: The emotional star told graduates an  hilarious anecdote about her days as a drama student

The Ray star then cackled as she  explained  that, of all the roles she has played as an actress, it was  still her father’s  favorite.

Kerry has come a long way from her days playing frogs on stage, and in 2009  was appointed to the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities, and even  delivered a speech at the Democratic National Convention last year.

And she told her fellow graduates they should carve their own unique paths  and follow their dreams.

She said: ‘Your life is your story and the adventure ahead of you is the  journey to fulfill your own purpose and potential.’

Hats not fair: The Django Unchained star was surely  jealous she did not get to wear an fancy headpiece

Walking on air: She was understandably  in a happy  mood after being made a doctor of fine arts

 

Brolly good show: The staunch Democrat would have been  relieved the rain held off for her speech
