At her Stanford commencement ceremony in 2005, Kamael Sugrim listened intently to Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
A year after he was first diagnosed with cancer, Jobs told the graduates that death is life’s change agent.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And, most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.”
Sugrim, a business grad, had her future life of prosperity assured, but Jobs’ words never left her. She took them to heart and changed her life to follow her bliss and help poor kids excel in Asia.
