Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock spiced up graduation at New Orlean's Warren Easton charter school on Monday. She donated hundreds of thousands to the school for Hurricane Katrina relief, and has long supported the institution. The "Gravity" star delivered a powerful address to the 198 graduates of 2014.

"The first thing is stop worrying so much," she preached. "Stop being so afraid of the unknown, because anything I was afraid of didn't happen."

"Stop being scared of the unknown, because anything I worried about didn't happen. Other stuff happened. The unknown we can't do anything about."

Bullock based her words on advice she gives her 4-year-old son, Louis Bardo Bullock, who was born in New Orleans. She wishes people taught her the same lessons when she was younger.

"Raise the bar higher," the star stated. "I only remember the moments where I tried beyond what I thought I could do, and I do not remember the failures because I didn't. Nothing is a failure, it's just not supposed to work out that way, because something better is supposed to come along."

The "Miss Congeniality" actress offered practical advice as well, such as "don't pick your nose in public," "when someone who cares about you hugs you, hug them back with two arms" and "go find your joy."

Students were understandably thrilled, and will not forget their special day! One student took to his twitter account to share the experience.

"SANDRA BULLOCK AT EASTON GRADUATION," user @OF3 tweeted with a picture of the star on stage.

Graduate Tatiana Collins was moved to tears by Bullock's powerful words.

"[The] words just sank, they sunk in, and after she finished speaking, I just started crying," the student told reporters.
