This Week’s Summary

Look at the young not by who they are but who they can become.
Judge them not by what they do not know, but the time they have, to learn and grow.
Inspect not the clothes worn on the outside, but the character still molding inside.
Work with them not because you can make use of them, but because of what you can impart to the future.
Never belittle the youth, because without us, there’s no future to look forward to.

This week had been an exciting week of opportunities and accomplishments, meeting up with people, many older than me, and working with peers, some younger than me. Some of you might know why I’m saying all these and what I am talking about. For those who don’t, I’m summarizing my week for you.

‘Here is just one example of the total wrongness of something I tend to be automatically sure of…’


In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.
We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested. However, we encourage everyone to seek out the full speech (because, in this case, the book is definitely better than the movie).
