Dear Graduates,

Today, we celebrate not just your graduation, but the incredible journey you've embarked on since April 2020. It was a time when the world was facing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. This situation changed our normal ways for studies, with classes moving online and making it hard for you all to meet and connect with fellow students face-to-face.

Despite these challenges, you've shown remarkable resilience and determination. You adapted to new ways of learning, supported each other, and continued to pursue your goals. This journey has not only expanded your knowledge but also strengthened your character.

At GIS, you've acquired key skills that have prepared you for the future. You've improved your English to meet global standards, developed the ability to think critically, and learned how to effectively share your ideas through discussions and presentations. Moreover, you've gained a broad understanding and a deep respect for diversity, which are crucial in today's world.

As you step into the future, I encourage you to use these skills to contribute to a better society. The world needs leaders who are not only knowledgeable but also compassionate and committed to positive change. You, as GIS graduates, are well-equipped to be those leaders.

So, as you move forward, aim high but also remember to make a difference in the world. Whether you're working locally or internationally, know that you have the potential to bring about significant change. Let the values and education you received here at GIS guide you in creating a more understanding, fair, and prosperous world for everyone.

Congratulations, Class of 2024! You've overcome significant challenges and are ready for your next steps. We're proud of what you've achieved and we are excited to see the impact you will make in the future. Go forth with courage and vision, and let your light shine brightly in the corners of the world that need it most. The stage is yours, and the future is bright.

Thank you, and congratulations once again on your well-earned success.
