The 57-year-old talk show host gave an inspiring speech about being different.
“The most important thing I want to say is just really embrace who you are, because being unique is very, very important and fitting in is not all that matters,” Ellen said. “It’s being unique and being who you are.”
Ellen‘s new collaboration with Gap is available in stores and online starting on August 18. Her new #HeyWorld campaign is “a social movement designed to help all girls realize they have the power to do extraordinary things.”
Celebs like Jaime King have partnered with Ellen to spread the message.
“YOU ARE LOVED!!! So proud to partner with #EllenDeGeneres and @GapKids for the #Heyworld initiative! Ellen (who is my ultimate girl crush) #Gap and friends have teamed up to let all girls know that you ARE unique, strong, and your dreams matter,” Jaime said on Instagram. “Never forget that you add up to your male counterparts, to your girl counterparts and if you follow your heart you will never fail ♥️.”
