Watch Taylor Swift’s New York University (NYU) Inspirational Speech Here
TAYLOR SWIFT – Multiple Grammy winner Taylor Swift delivered New York University (NYU) 2022 Commencement speech at Yankee Stadium on May 18, 2022, in New York City.
One of the biggest artists in the world today is Taylor Swift. She’s a singer-songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee.
The 32-year-old superstar delivered remarks as an honorary degree recipient at the New York University’s commencement ceremony on May 18. The event is also attended by Vice President Leni Robredo’s youngest daughter Jillian Robredo, who is set to receive her double degree in Math and Economics.
Taylor Swift started her speech by acknowledging the out-of-town relatives and friends of the NYU graduates with “Let me say to you now: Welcome to New York – it’s been waiting for you,” a reference to her 2014 hit.
The Multiple Grammy winner gave “life hacks” to the graduates and told them to accept their mistakes and embrace cringe moments as they set out into the post-pandemic world.
“We are led by our gut instincts, our intuition, our desires and fears, our scars and our dreams. And you will screw it up sometimes. So will I. And when I do, you will most likely read about on the internet. Anyway, hard things will happen to us. We will recover. We will learn from it. We will grow more resilient because of it.”
“As long as we are fortunate enough to be breathing, we will breathe in, breathe through, breathe deep, breathe out. And I’m a doctor now, so I know how breathing works.”
Taylor Swift said she started her music career at 15. She shared she received unsolicited advice from adults in the music industry. Instead of giving advice at the event, she instead opted to give “life hacks.”
“I promise you, you’re probably doing or wearing something right now that you will look back on later and find revolting and hilarious. You can’t avoid it, so don’t try to. For example, I had a phase where, for the entirety of 2012, I dressed like a 1950s housewife. But you know what? I was having fun. Trends and phases are fun. Looking back and laughing is fun,” Tay said.
To end her speech, the pop star referenced her hit song from her album ‘Red’ again. She said, “Let’s keep dancing like we’re the class of ’22.”
