Jada Pinkett Smith speaks at old school

Oct 26 2013, 5:12pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Jada Pinkett Smith returned to her former high school in Baltimore, Maryland on Thursday night (10.24.13).

The 42-year-old actress, who has two children, Jaden, 15, and Willow, 12, with husband Will Smith, was "grateful" to be given the opportunity to speak to students and reconnect with her old friends at the Baltimore School for the Arts, and admitted it made her realize she has "lived a lot of life."

In a post on her Facebook page on Friday (10.25.13), she wrote: "To return to a place where I hadn't realized I was still so deeply rooted, with all the tangible history and memories, was a bit overwhelming but a beautiful reminder of how it all began and who was there for me in the beginning. I am grateful for the experience. It truly grounded me with memories of what was and what has been. I got to speak to the senior class in a theatre I was able to name in honor of Tupac when we donated money to help enhance the school. I also spoke to a few hundred people in the theatre that had once been our homeroom and had the opportunity to see old friends and a few administrators who guided us during our four year tenure."

She added: "The night was nostalgic, emotional and a true reminder that life is about making a beautiful patchwork of events that will belong to you for an eternity. I've lived a lot of life, and I am grateful to still be here to say so."

While the actress clearly feels like she benefitted from her education, her son Jaden recently said he thought school was a waste of time.

The 'After Earth' star tweeted: "If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society."
