"Some say to reach for the stars, but I can see we have all already become stars. I hope you leave this chapter filled with confidence in yourselves, in your community, friends, family, and loved ones, and in Brandeis," said undergraduate student speaker Nathalie Vieux-Gresham ’23, GSAS MS’23. "As you carry your raison d’être, French for ‘reason to be,’ move with faith. Whether you trust your mind, your gut, or your heart, find confidence in your innermost parts."
