The former first lady, U.S. Senator and Secretary of State reminisced about growing up, going back to her early teens.

She introduced a panel spotlighting the crucial importance of education.

Bill Clinton took the stage, challenging students to remain focused and motivated.

"But I want all of you to remember that as with all great plans that promise change, the second most important moment is what happens after you come out with the ideas, and who will stand up and say "send me I will fight for that"," said Bill Clinton.
