Ellen At Teen Choice Awards: “Embrace Who You Are”

Ellen DeGeneres accepting her Teen Choice Award last night:

“I wanna say also it feels good to be chosen but there was a time in my life that I was not chosen. I wanna say also it feels good to be chosen but there was a time in my life that I was not chosen.”

“I was the opposite of chosen because I was different, and I think I wanna make sure that everyone knows that what makes you different right now, makes you stand out later in life.”

“The most important thing I wanna say is just really embrace who you are because being unique is very, very important and fitting in is not all that matters.”
