Ambassador Koç's Speech at the Gradution Ceremony

Dear Chancellor, Vice-Chancellors, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen and Graduates, I am very pleased to be here on such a special day.

Dear Graduates, you made it.

Thanks to all difficulties you have been through, thanks to all papers you wrote and projects you completed, and of course, all the joyful moments you had in this campus, you are now here today.

Congratulations.

Today is the day for you to celebrate your hard work and dedication you have put in over the last few years. Though you went through some ups and downs, today shows that it all paid off.

Life is a process, and, you all move forward in your own path. You will all draw your own lives. Be brave to discover new routes, new lives, technology, people, everything at all. Take risks wisely.

And, always remember you are brilliant, talented and precious youth of us.

The world needs your work; your countries need your ambitions. Without giving up, try to fulfill your purposes.

Pain will always be there for the ones who expect something from life, but hope and success will be there also. Therefore, that is what I am wishing for you today: Health, success and happiness during your whole lifetime.

Dear Guests,

I express my gratitude on behalf of you to all the people who have helped you to get to where you are, to the wonderful academicians and administration staff who guided you through referencing and working out your timetables, and to those staff who volunteered their time to student projects.

Thank you all who make IUS the extraordinary place in Bosnia Herzegovina.

Last but not least, I would like to send special thanks to all the families and friends of our graduates who may or may not be here today but who supported them through their journey.

I hope our graduates, you create a future that you are completely passionate about, and certainly you deserve it.

Good Luck.
