A great virtual graduation speech begins with a brainstorming session. Start by asking yourself what you have gained from your high school experiences. What were your successes? What challenges did you overcome? What important lessons did you learn? What connections did you make with your classmates and teachers? What were your most memorable moments? Identify your online high school success stories to share with the audience.
It’s also a good idea to brainstorm your expectations for the future. What kind of challenges might you and your classmates encounter in the next phase of your lives? How have your online school experiences prepared you for those challenges?
Write down your thoughts and ideas as you consider the experiences you would like to share in your online graduation speech. Generating these personal ideas will help get your creative juices flowing so you can determine the best stories to share with your graduating class.
Remember, sometimes the best ideas come to us at unexpected times. In addition to setting aside time for a brainstorming session, keep a notebook handy so you can jot down your ideas when inspiration strikes.
