Thoughts:

To be a star is a privilege.

To be a drop of water or a lake is a privilege.

To be a bird is a privilege.

To be a human is a privilege.

There are things which are evolved and formed and structured in humans (or in one human) which make them different. Though there are ways in which these are all the same, it's this uniqueness in the nature of being human which is a privilege of being human. Only a human could know something of a star or a drop of water or a lake or a bird or a human, in the particular way that a human does. Only a particular human could know them in the way they do.

Some of the privileges of being human are that we can know that we can comprehend such things, and assign meaning and make choices in ways in which a rock or a tree or a tiger (or whatever) wouldn't.
