Commencement Speech Recap

Last year, I never would've used "y'all" so many times in a #speech.

But I've begun to realize - #students and #audiences need to identify with you before your message can resonate.

As UAG #technology school's commencement #speaker, I demonstrated, by familiarity with modern slang and dances, that credentials don't have to change you.

Nor does use of #ebonics make you any less capable.

In fact, I think it makes me #bilingual.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this speech!
