It may be hard to imagine, but someday you will (hopefully) be the graduate looking toward your future. What dreams do you hope to make happen?
Write down what you hope your future will be like. Will you be married with children? Will you have a fun, interesting job? Where will you live?
Bonus: Draw a picture of the future you!!
In her speech, Amy Poehler talks about how sharing experiences with friends makes you feel less afraid and braver. Share a time when you felt better because you had a friend to lean on.

Remember to be creative!!!
Think about all the different roles you play - student, friend, son/daughter, brother/sister, etc.. Make a list of at least five different ways you see yourself.
Now, write down graduation day advice that you would share from each of these perspectives. As a student to a teacher, your advice will be different than as a friend to a friend. Really consider the different role you play in the life of the person with whom you are sharing this advice.
