LA Fellows Cohort 9 Graduation Speeches - Part I

Cohort 9 of the LA Fellows was a uniquely creative and diverse group of professionals. When the time came to choose the two speakers who would represent their class at the graduation podium, they chose three instead and decided, unlike any of the previous groups, to collaborate on one three-part speech.

Ruscha Robbins, an author and soon to be grant writer who came to us from the real estate industry, was the first speaker. Her segment of the speech was about the phase of life before LA Fellows, "those dark bleak days where you think you are alone in unemployment, to the magnificent day when you finally hear ‘we want you’ that leads to that first day in class, and the beginning of something new and wonderful."
