With the help of a few famous friends, Lady Gaga launched her Born This Way Foundation on Wednesday at Harvard University.

Gaga was joined at the launch by Oprah Winfrey and spiritual guru Deepak Chopra, as well as Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Speaking to more than 1,000 students, faculty and guests on what she called “one of the best days of my life,” the singer said, “I believe that if you have revolutionary potential, you must make the world a better place and use it.”

She added, “The goal is to challenge meanness and cruelty by inspiring young people to create a support system in their respective communities.”
