I don’t love studying. I hate studying. I like learning. Learning is beautiful.” Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman full TRANSCRIPT:

“Hello, class of 2015. I am so honored to be here today. Dean Khurana, faculty, parents, and most especially graduating students. Thank you so much for inviting me. The Senior Class Committee. It’s genuinely one of the most exciting things I’ve ever been asked to do.

You are here for a reason.
