You’ve been asked to speak at your high school alma mater — about the path of life. (Whoa.) Draft the speech.
Draft of my speech at Alma mater
Respected mother superior, mother Thomasina, sister Hilda………and my dear students.
I got admission in this school when I was 5 years old. There are so many beautiful memories rushing back to mind. Six years of my life I spent here were the best years of my life. I passed my higher secondary exams from this school some 52 years ago. I never thought I would get a chance to speak before you. Well, here I am addressing you all and I’m very happy to come to this school once again.
I loved this school, my teachers and my classmates very much. My teachers were very sincere about teaching; they took special care of each child to make him understand their relative subjects. So much that I still remember everything and was able to teach my children. Thanks to My teachers ( name of some of them)…
I’m here to talk about the path of life.
I will make it short, as I know how student hate long speeches.
What my teachers taught and what my life taught me there is education is very necessary. Hard work and attention is required to get it. Some other qualities are also required which I’m sure your teachers have taught you.
I’ll add just few things for reaching your goal in life what qualities you need.
Little ego for self-esteem
Patience when you go off beam
Stubbornness when you think you are just
Politeness is always a must
Hunger for success in life
Grace whenever there is strife
Anger when someone is abused
Presence of mind when you are confused
Righteousness when there is a fight
Calmness when situation is tight
Little selfishness to make yourself happy
Peace of mind so you are not snappy
Conscience to stay away from vices
Strength when difficulty arises
A little negativity you need sometimes
Being positive is always right every time.
I thank you all for listening to me with so patiently and quietly.
