Valedictory Graduation Speech
Today, we celebrate our success after all these years of hardship, struggle and perseverance. We reminisce the challenges that stood before us, and we savour the victories that came upon our hands. It was not so long ago when we dare to dream, and not so long ago, when we dared to take the first essential steps towards our fulfilment of satisfaction. Along the way, we met a surplus of trials, but our burning desire to reach our goals has kept us from straying or giving up. Along the way were many uncertainties, but certain beacons of light showed us the right path to take. Let us thank God for His unceasing grace and guidance; our professors, for their immeasurable dedication; our parents for their unconditional support all throughout these years; and our friends who walked along with us, side by side. Because of them, we were able to reach our dreams. Because of them, we can truly say, “We made it!”. Yet is this really the end of all our dreams? Friends, we should not just stop here and dwell with memories. Rather, we must look onwards and dream once more. But this time, let us dream not only for ourselves. Let us dream for the nation, and let us dream for the world. It is not sufficient anymore to be the mere hope of the nation. We must be the fulfillment of that hope! So do your best not only to improve yourselves, but to improve the socio-economic conditions of your country. You have a great role in making this nation great again.
