At the ceremony, we had the honour to welcome Mr Steve Price-Thomas OBE, Global Director of Advocacy, Campaigns and Public Engagement at Oxfam International. He delivered an inspiring speech about how the young generation has grown to overcome, to adapt the uncertainty and fast pace of change during this time as well as in the future. He left the graduates with three pieces of advice: "Don’t be afraid of tough time – Do what you think it’s right, grow yourself in values that last – and finally, Build a community wherever you are."
The emotional built up with the student speech by Tran Hoang Tue Linh on behalf of the graduating class of 2020. She reflected a memorable journey with all her friends and teachers after eight years at BIS, which definitely brought many of us at the ceremony to tears.
