Kadenyi’s Graduation

Since its graduation season and I am sure most of you have heard it all: from the greatest speeches of your Valedictorians in your respective universities, to the hundreds of Snap chat videos you have seen. We all know the point of commencement addresses is to bestow wisdom to the graduates. Therefore, I have decided to share with you the most inspiring quotes to congratulate my fellow graduates and to inspire those who want to do so to.

Lots of Love
