Nicki Minaj just made the dreams of so many screaming 13-year-olds come true when she performed at a Bar Mitzvah over the weekend.

Time shared footage from the event, courtesy of Nicki Minaj News, that included Minaj giving an inspirational speech to all of the young attendees. The lucky man-of-the-hour, Matt, also snapped a picture with the rapper.

“Stay in school and don’t be a slouch or a bum,” Minaj says, “Ladies, never let a man have to take care of you, do you understand me? Be your own woman, be your own person.”
