Exeter, New Hampshire never really felt like home. It sounds cliché, but the truth was I never quite found my rhythm during my post-graduate year at Phillips Exeter Academy in 2014, so when I was invited to return and give an assembly, needless to say I was floored.
I thought about all of the wrongs I wanted to make right—people I wanted to inspire—and felt as though this would be an incredible opportunity to do just that. Furthermore, I knew delivering this speech during this time would also provide me with the unique opportunity to reach a diverse group of people all over the world during what is currently a global crisis.
Perhaps what would be my most important speech I've given to date came earlier this week and I am excited to now share it with all of you. Below, hear my thoughts on the current state of our world, how we can continue to find ways to smile and much more.
Exeter, New Hampshire is now a place I reflect kindly on and am confident I will for the rest of my days. Non sibi forever.
Trying to make the world a smilier place one character at a time.
