My 2018 Commencement Speech
Most commencement #speeches I've heard weren't for people like me.
Or at least I didn't feel like they were.
They were usually given by someone who was disconnected, either racially, socioeconomically or age-wise. Even if they gave great advice, they didn't speak 'my language', and were tuned out as a result.
As I prepared for this commencement speech at UAG #Technology School, I recalled traits of past mentors with whom I most closely connected.
They were usually people I resembled, who were 3-5 years older than me.
Old enough to respect, young enough to understand. That's the #energy I brought to this speech. Had so much fun connecting with these students on a REAL level!
Thanks so much UAG Technology School for the opportunity!
