Speech of the day
Mentor Agron Dida
Outstanding graduate student
It was a truly amazing experience to speak at the ASU Graduate Convocation. The goal of this speech was to plant a seed of unity and changemaking into all people who were there.
Getting an education is a tremendous experience but traditional education is not enough to fully develop a person. Sometimes the trouble makers in the world are very well educated but what they lack is compassion, empathy and love. Therefore, I have devoted my life to the promotion of inner human values such as compassion, empathy, kindness, love, and gratitude; and i feel that education is the best way to insert those attributes in the heart of every individual.
This week I have accepted a job at Ashoka’s Youth Venture team in Washington DC ( https://www.facebook.com/AshokaOrg?pnref=story ). I will start working June 1st and I feel very excited to be part of this incredible organization. I am open for collaboration with anyone who has ideas related with social innovation and empowering youth or anything else.
