On behalf of AIPFE, Myria Avraamidou, project manager of WF4B, addressed the graduating class. “Be ambitious, but also be humble and compassionate? Take credit for your success, without blaming others for failure. Be intellectually rigorous, recognize your biases, and your privileges. Define yourself by what you love. Be expressive and generous, praising those you admire. Respect people with less power than you? Confidence is nothing more than the ability to trust yourself.”
