Shailene Woodley was the recipient of the Trailblazer Award at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, and she wowed the crowd with her heartfelt acceptance speech.

Introduced by her The Spectacular Now co-star Miles Teller — who made plenty of playful, hilarious jabs at Shailene’s hippie-like behavior (like her penchant for “heart hugs,” mason jars and clean water) — Shailene went onstage to receive the award with the same eloquence she exuded in her Best Female Performance speech. (Cue the tears and grab the tissues.)

Shailene — who was awarded for both her role model status and her work in films The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent, The Descendants and more — channeled previous Trailblazer winner Emma Stone, who famously told the audience that while we’ll meet thousands of people in our lives, “we’ll never be anyone other than ourselves.”

Shailene chose to focus on the value of community in her speech, calling out everyone “who we pick up along the trail on our ways” before wondering out loud even what she was talking about.

And even though she adorably faltered, she ended her speech on a strong note: “For all of you who have been pillars to me, thank you,” Shailene said graciously. “And for all of you who I have been pillars for, I will continue to be a pillar for you.”
