Shonda Rimes is an incredibly kickass woman. Seriously.
She's the brain behind Grey's Anatomy AND Scandal, so it's safe to say she's a pretty damn intelligent woman.
So when she dishes out advice, we're DEFINITELY gonna listen to her!
Shonda was the Dartmouth College commencement speaker for the class of 2014, also her alma mater, and she dropped some MAJOR truth bombs on the graduating class!
Like how in order to do it all you have to make sacrifices and that hashtags on Twitter don't really mean ANYTHING, in regards to social activism!
'Hashtags are very pretty on Twitter. I love them. I will hashtag myself into next week. But a hashtag is not a movement. A hashtag does not make you Dr. King. A hashtag does not change anything. It’s a hashtag. It’s you, sitting on your butt, typing on your computer and then going back to binge-watching your favorite show. I do it all the time. For me, it’s Game of Thrones.'
DAMN, gurl! Tell us how you really feel!
But, honestly, she's got a point! Just because someone makes #Kony2012 a thing on Twitter, doesn't mean ANYTHING is going to happen from it!
So, yeah! You go, Shonda! Keep on dropping truths on the youths of the world! We love it!
P.S. Her speech starts around the 1:40 mark, so be sure to ch-ch-check out ALL of Shonda's AH-MAZE wisdom (below)!!!
