CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 1 (UPI) -- Lady Gaga introduced her Born This Way Foundation, the non-profit she created to empower youth and inspire creativity, at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.

"The culture of love is not going to change overnight but youth are the answer to creating a braver, kinder world," the singer told a crowd of policy makers, non-profit organizations, foundation leaders, students and youth at the Harvard Graduate School of Education's Askwith Forum. "This might be one of the best days of my life."

Among those who participated in Wednesday's event were media mogul Oprah Winfrey, author Deepak Chopra and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.

The John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment and Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society said in a news release they are partnering with BTWF "to explore the best ways to reach youth and create a new culture of kindness, bravery, acceptance and empowerment."
