Hollywood actress and writer, Angelina Jolie on Tuesday, delivered a lecture at the British University’s Centre for Women, Peace and Security (LSEWPS).
The United Nations High Commission for Refugees’ envoy, gave the enthralling lecture as part of her role as a visiting professor in practice at LSEWPS.
A spokesperson for the London School of Economics (LCE) confirmed that the “Tomb Raider” icon spoke about her experiences and what motivated her to accept and work as an UNHCR commissioner, adding that the lecture was aimed at helping students develop strategies to promote justice, human rights and women participation in conflict-affected situations in the world.
The actress who recently called it quits with Brad Pitt, her husband of 12 years, confirmed that she was initially “a little nervous, feeling butterflies” but eventually managed to deliver a captivating lecture, a feat which was attested to by the posts of some of the students on social media.
The lecture was followed by a low-key private tour of the “deserted” Buckingham palace with her 15-year old son, Maddock.
