Taylor Swift was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from New York University which they don't award lightly. Taylor responded by giving a very thoughtful, inspiring, and encouraging commencement speech, all while maintaining grace and a sense of humor.
"As long as we are fortunate enough to be breathing, we will breathe in, breathe through, breathe deep, breathe out". Dr. Taylor Swift
"I'm a big advocate for not hiding your enthusiasm for things". Dr. Taylor Swift
Taylor shared experiences and her passion during her speech (which didn't sound like a speech, sounded like a friend talking to us), and the message that we can't let losing and mistakes keep us down. Honestly, a universal message but one that Taylor encourages in an extra inspiring way.
Congratulations Dr. Taylor Swift! Here's a message worth listening to as we all graduate to the next steps in our lives, whatever they may be.
