When you are graduating college you definitely imagine a fabulous graduation ceremony. My boyfriend graduated San Jose State this past weekend. The commencement speaker was Nancy McFadden “executive secretary” to Governor Brown (CA). She was awful. The speech was unrelatable to a student population. She explained she felt uncomfortable with public speaking and didn’t have any idea how to make a commencement speech. She then shared personal life troubles and quoted other famous commencement speeches. She ended her speech on the suggestion of when all else fails..quote others.
This was incredibly disappointing. She provided no motivation or beliefs of success, and suggested unoriginality. Not only if she an alma matter of my university but she has a well established career in being an excetive officer and a lawyer. I honestly have no idea how she is known for her case success record when she gave an impossibily terrible commencement speech.
