I have a good grounding in yoga. I have been doing it from my graduation days.
You know when I was a high school student I wasn’t a very good student. Upon graduation we were asked if we would become a full working adult or go to university. I decided to go to film school and still to this day I try to avoid being a full working adult.
I had a chance to win $2 million, a week after high school graduation, and if I turned pro, the sponsor was going to financially support me.
I was a lesbian for a semester at Wesleyan – it was a graduation requirement.
After the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, primary education was made free. We are now thinking to make education in the public sector free up to graduation level. We are also thinking of providing a light meal at primary and secondary schools in order to increase the student retention level.
One of the most difficult speeches to prepare is an address to a graduation class, which is why I don’t often do them.
I had spent four months in Cedar City, Utah, right after graduation as an intern at the Utah Shakespearean Festival. It’s a town that has many people living the polygamous lifestyle.
What I like about graduation speeches is that they’re an opportunity for someone to make sense of their life and to impart that wisdom to someone else. It’s like a sanctioned self-help moment.
I love graduation speeches. I have always loved them; I will always love them.
Graduation speeches force you to reflect. They are about consciousness. Nothing is better than consciousness.
