Be Hopeful!

Furthermore, he continued saying that the progress of one generation, is the foundational premise for the other one. He said that he grew up with very little access to technology. Got his first telephone when he was 10 years old. Not having much access to a computer until he came to America in the early 90s for graduate school. Under one Television he got, he had only one channel in it. He finds our generation has many commands on technology. We used each and every shape and size of technology. Anywhere, anytime we can find whatever we want to. The growth of technology shows a path of hope. Eventually, we are dependent on technology.

Be Impatient!

Although, one can be frustrated due to the past mishaps of the old generation. The environment is dynamic. Changes are known for betterment for well being. Impatient will create progress which the world needs. We the present generation are creators. We are more experienced and advanced than in the past generation. Hence, we have the capacity and ability to create better ways. Maybe we are not confirmed or unplanned. Still, our ideas and work will help us. The successor of impatient will be open-minded.

Be open-minded!

We need to find what really makes us happy and hard working. The field which interests us the most. For him, it is a technology and so he is Google and Alphabet CEO. After his graduation, he wanted to execute his plans to create something great. When he landed in California, he found the US was expensive. A phone call cost him $2 money.

He found the internet will be the best way to make technology accessible to more people. Therefore, he was now surrounded by the internet. He missed his family, friends and girlfriend in India. He kept his dedication alive. Lately, when he realized people need a platform to explore. He changed his course and pursued Google. He launched Chrome in 2009. Chrome helped Google to develop on affordable laptops and phones. This helped in providing equal information to people in villages, schools or any part of the world.

He achieved this position by a deep passion for technology and exploration. He advised to take time and decide what interest you the most. You can do what one expects from you or society expects from you. The upcoming years and generation should remember not what class of 2020 lost but what you changed.

Lastly wrapping up the speech he said, “You have a chance to change everything, I’m optimistic you will. “
