Speaking for my Elementary Alma Mater Commencement Exercises

Friday, March 20, 2015


Yesterday, I was given a chance to speak before smart young minds, the graduates of the MSU TCTO CDC Laboratory Elementary School. This is the first wave of my speaking engagements for graduation ceremonies. I still have another next week, in sha Allah, I can deliver well.

With this event taking place in my life, I am crashing one item from my 30 things to do before turing 30 years old bucket list - to be the graduation ceremony guest speaker. Alhamdulillah. Just early this year, I have already crashed two items from the list. I give everything back to the Almighty. 

I was indeed nervous when I went to the stage yesterday. I prepared my speech beforehand, but I've never reread it nor practice. But, as I spoke, everything got into place. It was just like a casual conversation between friends. I am happy to be able to inspire young minds even though I don't have that much of experiences to share. 

I want to thank my elementary alma mater for giving this opportunity to me. Just like what I said in my speech. Alhamdulillah, I've done this!
