Yeshivah Prep Graduation
"Good Evening my fellow graduates, we did it! We made it through high school! There were rough times but we persevered. 4 years ago, I never would’ve thought I’d be standing here giving a speech. I was never much of a public speaker, but thanks to Mrs. Azizo that has changed.
We all have set goals and wish to achieve them with success and I believe we will. We’re all going our separate ways, however that doesn’t mean we won’t cross paths or keep in touch.
It’s a little frightening how we’re going into the real world. We’ve heard so much about it and now we’re going to experience it. We are independent adults.
Just think about it; no more 7am minyan, no more mincha in school, no more mandatory chesed hours… Upholding our level of religion is all in our hands now.
G-d willing, I hope we will continue praying to Hashem daily and strengthen our bond with him day after day voluntarily. We will prove to ourselves that maintaining a close relationship with Hashem comes from us WANTING to and not because we HAVE to.
I’d like to thank my family, my peers, my teachers and the rest of the administration for EVERYTHING. Thank you for helping me keep my head up. When I came to this school sophomore year, I didn’t know what to expect. I was a new student and I didn’t really know anybody. You all made me feel very welcome. I thank you for that. Coming to this school was the best decision I’ve ever made. I don’t have any regrets."
