As you cross this threshold understand that the world is full possibilities. Whatever you choose, I hope you will both relish your achievement here today and understand that your education is a unique privilege in this world – most women do not have these kinds of opportunities. You have worked hard, endured hours of exams, paper writing, readings, classroom lectures and "service learning," and now the world is yours to explore.

Don’t be afraid to take your time. Share kindness whenever you can. Try to do something that brings you joy, and keep learning!
