英语老师 扎卡里·阿灵顿 was chosen by the 2023届毕业生 to be the ceremony's faculty speaker. 他作了一次充满激情和鼓舞人心的演讲, sharing a few life lessons and advice he wanted to reinforce with our new graduates.

“As you keep hearing that you’re about to enter the real world, remember that you’ve been living in the real world for your whole lives. You’ve been living in a world full of hurt and joy. You’ve been permitting one another and collaborating with one another in making a world in which you all will fit. All that changes now is that your responsibility to continue those actions increases. And so too does your potential to enact the change you imagine to answer the need you observe. 现实世界是人造的. 你来创造. So make it a place full of permission–make it a place where you fit. 当你创造空间的时候, preserve some of that geography for the person next to you, 你身后的人. There is room if we make it, if we permit it; it will be.——扎卡里·阿灵顿
