Congratulations, Gianna. You’ve had a rougher road than most of your peers, and have come through with distinction to reach yet another starting point. I know you’re ready.
Too many commencement speakers have trod the same turf about opportunity and preparedness. I get the feeling that you know what you want, and have the tools and skills to seek it out and claim it as your own. You’re very much like your mother in that respect.
Best wishes for continued success at Robert Morris, and in your life ahead. Your mother and I are looking forward to watching you go after that which calls you.
