Commencement Speech: Who are you?

Today my Godmother graduated with a Masters of Business Administration! Congrats Auntie!!!
The commencement speaker for her graduation delivered one the most dynamic speeches I have ever heard. His oration built itself on the foundation of words. He said the words “I am,” in many ways, speak into existence whatever sequence of words that follow them. I am intelligent. I am loving. I am invaluable. What are you? Who do you aim to be? I hope you aim to be an agent of positive change in this world.
If you are something, please comment with “I am_________. “

  1. First of all, congratulations to your Godmother! That is such a wonderful achievement and milestone!
    The commencement speaker was a great fit for the ceremony! It’s amazing how two words like “I am” can create such powerful meaning! In a funny way, it reminded me of the Descartes quote, “I think, therefore I am.” The latter proving you do exist, where the “I am ________” statement declaring who you are and who you want to be.
    Great post Keyon! 🙂
