And as the students who helped build this school, I ask you, make your legacy a lasting one.Dream big, think broadly about your life, and please make giving back to your community apert of thar vision. Take the same hope and optimism, the hard work and tenacity that brought you to this point,and carry that with you for the rest of your life in whatever you choose to do. Each and every single day, some young person is out there changing the ways—the world in ways both big and small.
But let me tell you something,as you step out into that big, open world, and you start building your lives, the truth is that you will face tough times, you will certainly have doubts, let me tell you, because I know I did when I was your age. There we will be days when you will worry about whether you're really up for the challenge. Maybe some of you already feel a little of that right now. Maybe you're wondering: Am I smart enough? Do I really belong? Can I live up to all those expectations that everyone has of me?
