Last week I had the honor of giving the commencement address for the graduating class at Moses Brown. I am incredibly thankful for having gone to school at Moses Brown for thirteen years. The school’s faculty and staff were there for me and my family during the worst of times, and really had an huge impact on me both professionally and personally. Here is the video of the speech.
Here is an excerpt from the speech:
“When you choose to face your fears. When you choose to aim high — to solve problems you may not think you are capable of solving, and immerse yourself and work relentlessly to get there. Regardless of whether you hit your exact goal, you’ll end up higher than where you are now… Choose to be different, choose to aim high, and choose to be fearless. In the end it’s all about the choice we make every day: to either let life happen to you, or to make life happen.“
