Watch Gayle King's Full Speech at Variety's Power of Women

“CBS This Morning” co-anchor Gayle King was honored at Variety’s Power of Women: New York luncheon Friday for her work with SEO Scholars, an org that helps prepare youth from underprivileged backgrounds for college.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, who introduced the TV personality, called King “a superhero.”

King thanked private equity titan Henry Kravis (“he is a bad-ass billionaire guy,” she explained) for introducing her to the SEO Scholars program, and she spoke lovingly about trying to help give every kid the opportunities that her own son and daughter have enjoyed. She reflected on her success by offering a favorite quote from Maya Angelou: “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it.”
