Bocconi -18sett2015-13-30-390

Hi everyone! I have been so busy with Bocconi university’s project over the last few weeks that I totally forgot to update on weekly basis as I promise early this year.
Anyway speaking about universities, this past days there have been the graduation ceremony of the bachelor student at Bocconi University. Looking at all these students getting graduated and celebrating with their friends and families, just reminds me of how much time has passed since my first day at Bocconi University. When I came to Milan 4 years ago, I didn’t know exactly what to expect, I knew that it was the best University in Italy for Management, but I didn’t know that this choice would have changed my life so drastically.

My Speech

Last year I haven’t had the opportunity to have a speech to celebrate my graduation because I was flying back to China, where I started my Master degree. But now, I really can feel the nostalgia, I just realise that time has passed so quickly and I can’t be more thankful to my university. Here I have learned how to live far from home, I growth as a person not only academically. I found friendships that I believe will stay for a lifetime. I became independent and stronger than before, but at the same time I realise how important my family was to me. I became more ambitious and I understand that we are all fragile, but not for this reason we should give up. I learned that “success is not final and failure is not final: it’s the courage to continue that counts” as Churchill would say.

I had the opportunity to travel and see the world. I went to London, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Shanghai, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Yangon, Budapest and so on. I had so many experience that I would never imagine to have before coming here.

And for tomorrow I hope that I will continue to follow my dream of changing the world no matter how long is the journey, because in the end I enjoyed more the journey itself then my final goal. It’s a long way to the top, but we can be heroes just for one day. Dreams is what makes you happy, even when you are just trying. For the student of tomorrow, I would say that it totally worth coming here, because not matter the effort, the pressure, the competition and the never ending anxiety, in the end you will love these years, and you will remember as the best of your life, believe me.

Video about Bocconi University

I wanna share a video about my University which I enjoyed watching a lot. There is also a picture of me and my classmates at the Bocconi Global conference in Shanghai China, with Mario Monti, an Italian economist who served as the Prime Minister of Italy from 2011 to 2013.

 

I hope you enjoyed the post and see you in my next one! Leave a comment if you like it!
