Earlier today, I attended the graduation for my niece Gabby. When we came back home, she jumped for joy, totally feeling ecstatic that all her hard work lead to graduating with honours in the Broadcast Television and Media Program at Humber College. Though I couldn’t jump with her, I matched her outstretched arms and her brilliant smile that seemed to bring ever more light to the world around us.
To Gabby and all the 2013 graduates I say, it’s your time to soar! Continue moving forward. Work relentlessly to realize your vision for the world. I’ll work with you, help pick you up if you fall, and give you a helping hand, when you need it. Never give up; and when you achieve your next great accomplishment, I’ll be there to celebrate again, joyfully squeezing you with all the pride and love I can find.
