The special graduation commencement ceremony at the East Room of the White House was held on Friday and hosted 20 high-achieving graduates from high school, colleges, even kindergarten across the country whose ceremonies all have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Melania shared photos and a video of her remarks on the FLOTUS Twitter account on Saturday where she addressed a group of graduates along with President Trump and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
“Graduation is a pivotal moment for students of all education levels. @POTUS & I were proud to recognize & celebrate the class of 2020 with a few graduates at the @WhiteHouse yesterday. Keep chasing your dreams & striving to be your best self!”Melania tweeted.
The first lady tweeted a video of part of her speech with shots of the graduation ceremony. In her address, she urged the students not to lose sight of their dreams amid the coronavirus pandemic that has crippled the country.
“Welcome to the White House,” Melania said in her speech to the class of 2020. “Congratulations class of 2020, you should all be proud of yourselves for crossing the finish line in this chapter of your lives. And I hope you are excited for the many new ones to come. “Although today might not feel quite like you imagine you are still surrounded by the pride, love, and support of your family, friends, community, and our country.”
She continued, “We are living in unprecedented times and I’m proud to see the way each of you have adopted to this new and temporarily way of life.”
Melania acknowledged how the graduating class missed out on fun school events and opportunities while adapting to the new normal of life in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak in order to complete their studies.
“Many of you missed your prom, sporting events, and celebration with your friends but you were quick to find new ways to stay connected and active while remaining focused on finishing your education,” she said. “You proved to the entire world that you can set your mind to something important, push through and succeed showing all of us that you, our next generation, already possess the strength and resilience of the American spirit.”
“Do not be discouraged, continue to chase your dreams, use your success to help others, and make this experience one to shape your future in a positive way.”
“My hope for each of you is that will you always focus on what you want in life. Yes, you will be overwhelmed sometimes and there will be bumps in the road ahead, but continue to strive for greatness. Be your best selves. Believe in yourself and don’t ever give up. What you have ahead of you is so exciting and I can’t wait to watch all of you succeed,” she added.
The First Lady ended her remark with a quote from one of her favorite authors – Dr. Seuss from the book ‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go.’”
“You’re off to great places, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!”
