Sadly over zoom, but nonetheless very meaningful, I was incredibly grateful to be one of the commencement speakers at my writing minor's graduation ceremony. Writing this speech was an arduous three-month process. The speech went through multiple drafts and I practiced in front of housemates and friends a countless number of times. I wanted to make sure I got this speech right.
After watching & listening to my speech, I hope you have a better idea of just how meaningful my years at UCSB were while also feeling you know me a little better.
