With big list of awards and degrees in her introduction and presence of other personalities sharing stage with her. She was by far the most simple and impressive personality present.  Some people just impress everyone, you can't be but impressed by their simplicity if their achievements are not enough for you. Two days back I listned to Ela Bhatt, well known for her work for Indian poor woman and micro-finance. 

More info about her is available on Megsaysay Award website, Wikipedia and a brief article (somewhat old) in NYtimes.
