ICYMI: The Wharton Graduation Speech You Must See

Watch Dante Pearson WG17 deliver inspiration and big laughs to his fellow MBA graduates.

“We’re running out of time to be the person we already say that we are,” Dante Pearson WG17 said to a packed Palestra last month. “Now is the time to start being you.” His speech had everything you’d want from a graduation address: humor (joking about his status as a waitlister), inspiration (a call for each classmate to become his or her best, most authentic self), oratory flair (the man clearly has a gift for public speaking), and brevity (under 10 minutes!). Watch the video above and you’ll see the standing ovation Dante received at the end was well deserved.
