“Receiving an honorary degree from Harvard University thrills me deeply,” Dudamel captioned an Instagram post. “As a child in Barquisimeto, I could not have imagined that I would one day be recognized by this extraordinary institution.”

He continued: “Education is perhaps the greatest gift we can give. Throughout my life, it has helped me establish my sense of identity, both as an individual and as a member of a global community. When the challenges of the world begin to overwhelm us, I believe the best way to persevere is to approach one another with curiosity, empathy and a desire to learn. It is only through knowledge and understanding that we can heal, inspire and lead the world to a more compassionate future.”
