Need inspiration while thinking of advice for graduates in the class of 2015? You can check out last year’s winner, Sarah Hong. Sarah’s advice to graduates was:
“You Are Not An Imposter. Many times, students, especially those who are high achievers, have the “Imposter Syndrome”; sometimes they are unable to internalize their accomplishments, and think that they do not deserve the opportunities they are given (eg. work, scholarship, awards). Believe in yourself. You deserve everything and you have earned everything. Especially as an international student, you have outdone yourself and sought out the Education you wanted. Now take everything you’ve learned and change the world. You can do it.”
