THAT WAS A GREAT PERFORMANCE FROM HUMBER’S MUSIC AND VOCAL STUDENTS.>>DAN: OUR REPORTER HIREN IS NOW LIVE IN THE VIP ROOM WITH KARDINAL OFFISHAL.>>HIREN: GOOD AFTERNOON HUMBER. AS YOU CAN SEE, PEOPLE ARE ALREADY POURING IN AND ARE EXCITED ABOUT GRADUATING TODAY. THEY ARE JOINED BY THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. AS YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME, EVIL ARE COLLECTING THEIR DOWN TO WALK TO THE MARSHALING AREA TO WALK ACROSS THE STAGE. I HAVE WITH ME ONE OF CANADA’S BEST KNOWN, KARDINAL OFFISHAL. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE GIVEN THE HONOURARY DEGREE BY HUMBER COLLEGE?>>IT IS A MASSIVE HONOUR TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO YOUR INDUSTRY. I THINK AN INSTITUTION LIKE HUMBER, WHICH IS RECOGNIZED INTERNATIONALLY, IT IS AN ESTEEMED HONOUR TO RECEIVE A DEGREE TODAY.>>HIREN: CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT TAKING YOUR PASSION FOR MUSIC AND MERGING IT WITH AN ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT AND ENTERPRISE?>>I THINK MOST OF US IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY THAT ARE SUCCESSFUL HAVE FIGURED OUT A WAY TO, I GUESS, VERY DELICATELY TAKE THE CREATIVE WORLD AND THE WORLD OF FINANCE AND SMASH IT TOGETHER. I AM ALSO A SENIOR DIRECTOR AT UNIVERSAL MUSIC, SO I THINK I GET A LOT OF PRACTICE AS AN EXECUTIVE, AND I LEARNED NEW WAYS TO ADAPT AND NAVIGATE WITHIN THE INDUSTRY. I’M ALWAYS STAYING CREATIVE AND HUNGRY IN THE STUDIO. FOR ME, IT ALMOST CAME NATURALLY. I THINK BEFORE I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITIES, WE HAD A LITTLE TAGLINE WE USED TO SAY: INDEPENDENT HUSTLE WITH MAJOR-LEAGUE LABEL MUSCLE. THAT MEANS YOU ALWAYS THINK AS AN INDEPENDENT, WHETHER YOU’RE A SMALL BUSINESS AND PARTNER WITH A MAJOR CORPORATION, YOU ALWAYS KEEP THE HUNGER OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE GETTING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME. YOU KEEP THAT DRIVE, BUT YOU USE THE MACHINE OF THE BIGGER CORPORATIONS AND USE IT TOGETHER AND FIND A BALANCE THAT WORKS TOGETHER.>>HIREN: OVER THE MAJOR LESSONS THAT YOU LEARNED AS AN ENTREPRENEUR IN YOUR JOURNEY?>>WE LEARN LESSONS EVERY DAY OF A LITERALLY EVERYDAY. IT DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU ARE AT IN YOUR CAREER. DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO KNOW? BECAUSE THAT IS A VERY BROAD QUESTION? LITERALLY, I LEARNED DIFFERENT THINGS EVERY DAY IN TERMS OF BETTER COMMUNICATION SKILLS, HOW TO BE MORE SELF-SUFFICIENT. THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS I LEARNED ALL THE TIME. HOW TO BE CREATIVE AS AN ENTREPRENEUR WITH YOUR FINANCES, AND HAVE THOSE THINGS STRETCH AND LEARN WHEN TO ALLOCATE CERTAIN THINGS AND IN WHICH WAY. THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT YOU LEARN, AND ESPECIALLY IN TRAVELLING THE WORLD, YOU MAY LEARN HOW TO FUNCTION WITHIN NORTH AMERICA, BUT WHAT YOU HAVE TO GO ON TOUR IN SAY, CHINA OR FRANCE OR INDIA OR IF YOU HAVE AN ARTIST THAT IS SIGNED. THE WAY THAT CULTURALLY AND SOCIALLY, THINGS WORK AROUND THE WORLD IS DIFFERENT FROM HERE. THERE ARE MANY THINGS YOU HAVE TO LEARN ALL THE TIME, AND YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO ADAPT AND FIGURE OUT WHAT ARE THE BEST BUSINESS PRACTICES PRETTY MUCH EVERY DAY. THE OTHER THING IS THAT ESPECIALLY IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, THE LANDSCAPE IS CHANGING. THE THINGS THAT WORKED YESTERDAY MAY NOT WORK TODAY OR TOMORROW. AGAIN, YOU HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO BE ABLE TO NAVIGATE.>>HIREN: IF YOU HAD A FEW EDITS WITH A BUSINESS GRADUATE OR A BUSINESS STUDENT AND YOU HAD TO TELL HIM TWO OR THREE THINGS THAT WERE THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN YOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL JOURNEY, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO GIVE HIM SOME WISE ADVICE?>>I WOULD SAY THAT EVERYTHING IS ONLY IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL YOU DO IT. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SAY THIS WOULD NEVER WORK FOR A BUSINESS OR 1000 BUSINESSES. THAT MIGHT BE THE STORY FOR THEM, BUT YOU MIGHT BE THE ONE PERSON THAT WAS ABLE TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN. SO NEVER TAKE ON ANYBODY’S STORY GOSPEL. YOU MIGHT BE THE ONE TO FIGURE OUT A NEW WAY TO DO BUSINESS. THE OTHER ONE I WOULD SAY HIS RELATIONSHIPS, NETWORKING. THAT IS SO KEY AND SO VALUABLE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS BUSINESS. A LOT OF TIMES, OPPORTUNITIES THAT YOU MAY GET, MAY BE A SOMEWHAT YOUR NETWORK LOOKS LIKE. WHAT YOU SAY THAT YOUR NETWORK IS YOUR NETWORK, THAT IS SUCH A TRUE STATEMENT. YOUR NETWORK IS YOUR NET WORTH. A LOT OF PEOPLE I HAVE KNOWN FOR A LONG TIME OR PEOPLE THAT I MET JUST A WEEK BEFORE. THE LAST THING IS TO ALWAYS TREAT EVERYBODY THE SAME, WHETHER THEY ARE A PRESIDENT, A CEO OR SOMEBODY THAT YOU NEED WHO HOLDS THE DOOR OPEN FOR YOU. TO BE HONEST, THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT I KNOW NOW WHO ARE PRESIDENTS WHO MAY HAVE DARTED OFF AT A VERY JUNIOR LEVEL. I WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO NOT CURATE THE WHEEL THE WAY YOU DEAL WITH PEOPLE BASED ON WHO YOU THINK THEY ARE. JUST DEAL WITH EVERYBODY THE SAME TYPE OF WAY AND TREAT EVERYONE WITH A MUTUAL RESPECT BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN THAT PERSON MAY ELEVATE IN THAT PERSON MAY BE SIGNING A CHEQUE THAT YOU MAY NEED.>>HIREN: YOU STARTED OFF AS A RAPPER.>>I AM STILL A RAPPER. ABOUT HIREN 100 %. NOW YOU ARE A RAPPER AND AN ENTREPRENEUR. I WANT TO KNOW, HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF? ARE YOU MORE OF A RAPPER OR MORE OF AN ENTREPRENEUR OR MORE OF BOTH?>>THERE IS AN ACRONYM THAT I THINK BEST SUITS ME, WHICH IS REP, WHICH IS RAPPER EXECUTIVE AND THE LENGTH THIS. FOR ME, I THINK IT IS SPREAD PRETTY EQUALLY. RAPPER, EXECUTIVE AND PHILANTHROPIST. I SPEND A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME BEING A RAPPER AND MAKING SURE MY CREATIVITY IS FLOWING. EVERYTHING I DO CURRENTLY STEMS FROM THE FOUNDATION OF MUSIC. I NEVER KIND OF STRAYED AWAY FROM THAT. GOING ON, AS YOU MATURE, I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME A SENIOR EXECUTIVE. THAT IS A BRAND-NEW WORLD I ENTERED INTO MAYBE 4 OR 5 YEARS AGO. BUT I THINK ALWAYS HAVING THAT SAME INDEPENDENT HUSTLE THAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT BEFORE, BEING ABLE TO HAVE THAT INDEPENDENT HUSTLE REPAIR BEFORE MY JOB AS AN EXECUTIVE BECAUSE I THINK DIFFERENTLY AND MY BRAIN IS TUNED IN A DIFFERENT WAY. I THINK THAT IS WHERE MY VALUE COMES IN. I CAN OFFER A DIFFERENT WAY OF LOOKING AT A CORPORATE STRUCTURE. THE LAST THING IS PHILANTHROPY. AT THE END OF THE DAY, THAT IS JUST BEING A GOOD HUMAN AND INTERVENING BACK TO THE WORLD THAT HAS CONTRIBUTED TO. I SPEND A LOT OF TIME ALSO CAN FIGURING OUT WAYS TO GIVE BACK AND ENHANCE OUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY.>>HALLIE:>>HIREN: HOW INTERCONNECTED IS PHILANTHROPY AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP?>>IT DEPENDS ON WHO YOU ARE. FOR SOME PEOPLE IT IS JUST A TAX WRITE OFF. BUT I WAS RAISED IN A COMMUNITY AND WITH MY MOM BEING A PILLAR IN THE COMMUNITY, SOMEBODY THAT HAS ALWAYS WORKED TO ENRICH THE COMMUNITIES BOTH THAT WE LIVED IN AND THE ONES THAT WE EVEN DIDN’T LIVE IN. I GREW UP UNDERSTANDING THE IMPORTANCE AND THE VALUE OF PHILANTHROPIC VALUES. NOT IN A CHARITABLE SENSE, BECAUSE I DON’T LIKE THINKING OF IT AS CHARITY, BUT MORE LIKE GIVING A HELPING HAND THAT PEOPLE CAN HAVE A MORE SUSTAINABLE LIFESTYLE, DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD. SO THAT THE THINGS THAT YOU LEARN CAN HELP AND CREATE A POSITIVE CYCLE.>>HARRY:>>HIREN: YOU ARE FROM CANADA AND YOU ARE GETTING A HONOURARY DEGREE FROM HUMBER COLLEGE TORONTO, YOUR HOME COUNTRY. HOW SPECIAL IS THIS FOR YOU?>>IT IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. THERE IS NO PLACE THAT I WOULD RATHER BE OTHER THAN TORONTO. TORONTO IS VERY SPECIAL. IT HAS RAISED ME, IT HAS SHOWED ME A LOT OF LESSONS. SOMETIMES PEOPLE SAY THEY GO THROUGH BAD STUFF AND THEY GO THROUGH GOOD STUFF, BUT I’M COMING TO UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE NOT NECESSARILY BAD SITUATIONS, BUT JUST SITUATIONS THAT YOU LEARN FROM, LESSONS THAT MAKE YOU BETTER. WHEN YOU LOOK BACK AND SEE ALL THOSE QUOTE UNQUOTE BAD SITUATIONS, THEY ARE SITUATIONS THAT PREPARE YOU FOR WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE. THERE IS NO PLACE THAT I WOULD RATHER GET A HONOURARY DEGREE THEN HERE IN TORONTO AND THE PRESTIGIOUS PLACE LIKE HUMBER.>>HIREN: KARDINAL, YOUR PRESENCE IS EXTREMELY SPECIAL FOR US. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.>>KARDINAL: IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>HYBRID AS YOU CAN SEE, AHARON AHARON.>>HIREN: BACK TO DAN AND RAFAEL. I WILL SEE YOU IN THE MARSHALING AREA.>>DAN: THANKS HIREN.

I AM OUTSIDE THE MAIN STAGE, WHERE STUDENTS ARE GETTING LINED UP TO WALK ACROSS THE STAGE. THEY ARE EXCITED. I AM WITH PROUD PARENTS, LOIS AND JOE. HER DAUGHTER, MARY JO IS GRADUATING FROM THE DIGITAL MARKETING COURSE. HOW DOES IT FEEL SEE YOUR KID WALKING ACROSS THE STAGE TO GRADUATE TODAY?>>I AM SO HAPPY, SO PROUD OF HER AND WHAT SHE ACCOMPLISHED, BOTH EDUCATIONALLY AND HOW MUCH SHE HAS GROWN AS A PERSON AS A RESULT OF GOING THROUGH HUMBER.>>THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT CAN EXPRESS HOW PROUD WE ARE OF HER.>>HIREN: WHAT LED TO HUMBER AND WHAT WAS THE SELECTION PROCESS LIKE?>>ACTUALLY, I RECOMMENDED THAT SHE SHOULD LOOK AT HUMBER WITH THEIR DIGITAL MARKETING PROGRAM BECAUSE I HAVE A FRIEND WHO TEACHES IN THE GRADUATE MARKETING PROGRAM. BUT SHE DID THE FULL SPREADSHEET, COMPARING ALL THE UNIVERSITIES AND LOOKING AT THE COURSES. SHE WAS LIKE, WOW, THEY HAVE A REALLY GOOD PROGRAM. AND THEY DO.>>HIREN: AS YOU LOOK BACK AT HOW SHE WAS AND WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED AND HOW SHE HAS BECOME AS A PERSON, WHAT KIND OF CHANGES DO YOU SEE, AND WHAT CHANGES HAS HUMBER HELPED PRODUCE?>>SHE HAS PARTICIPATED A LOT IN THE DECA PROGRAMS AT HUMBER, WHICH ARE THE CASE COMPETITIONS. AS A RESULT OF THAT, SHE HAD TO REALLY REFINE ALL OF HER SKILLS BECAUSE THOSE ARE VERY DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENTS. SHE HAS BEEN SO COMPETITIVE FOR HUMBER, WINNING MANY REGIONAL AND ONTARIO EVENTS AND EVEN GOING TO INTERNATIONALS AND COMPETING AGAINST HARVARD AND YALE, AND CAME SECOND PLACE IN THE INTERNATIONALS THIS YEAR.

BACK TO DAN AND RAFAEL.>>DAN: THANKS HIREN. IT IS GREAT TO HEAR FROM PROUD PARENTS. I JUST THINK ABOUT WHAT KARDINAL OFFISHAL SAID ABOUT HOW HE LEARNED A LOT OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL, AND NEVER STOP LEARNING. EVERYTHING HE ENCOUNTERED BECAME AN EDUCATIONAL MOMENT. I THINK THAT WILL BE THE CASE FOR A LOT OF THE GRADUATES INVOLVED TODAY. THEY WILL TAKE WHAT THEY LEARN HERE AT HUMBER AND EXTRAPOLATED AND CONTINUE TO BUILD ON THE FOUNDATIONS AND KEEP LEARNING AND EDUCATING THEMSELVES EVERYDAY.>>IT IS ALWAYS THE PARENTS WHO ARE SO SUPPORTIVE AND PROUD IN THE CONVOCATION HALL.

WELCOME TO THE 2019 CONVOCATION CEREMONY FOR THE GRADUATES FROM THE BUSINESS SCHOOL. IN FACT, THIS IS THE SECOND OF TWO CEREMONIES HELD FOR THE BUSINESS SCHOOL GRADUATES. THE FIRST WAS HELD EARLIER TODAY. MY NAME IS ALVINA CASSIANI, DEAN, THE BUSINESS SCHOOL. IT IS MY PLEASURE TO SERVE AS YOUR MASTER OF CEREMONIES TODAY. WE WOULD LIKE TO BEGIN THE CEREMONY TODAY BY ACKNOWLEDGING THAT HUMBER COLLEGE IS LOCATED WITHIN THE TRADITIONAL AND TREATY LANDS OF THE MISSISSAUGAS OF THE CREDIT. KNOWN AS ADOBIIGOK, THE “PLACE OF THE BLACK ALDERS” IN THE MISSISSAUGA LANGUAGE, THE REGION IS UNIQUELY SITUATED ALONG HUMBER RIVER WATERSHED, WHICH HISTORICALLY PROVIDED AN INTEGRAL CONNECTION FOR ANISHINAABE, HAUDENOSAUNEE, AND WENDAT PEOPLES BETWEEN THE ONTARIO LAKESHORE AND THE LAKE SIMCOE/GEORGIAN BAY REGIONS. NOW HOME TO PEOPLE OF NUMEROUS NATIONS, ADOBIIGOK CONTINUES TO PROVIDE A VITAL SOURCE OF INTERCONNECTION FOR ALL. TODAY WE ACKNOWLEDGE AND HONOUR THE LAND WE ARE WALKING ON, THE MOCCASIN TRACKS OF OUR ANCESTORS AND THE FOOTPRINTS OF THE FUTURE GENERATIONS TO COME. I WOULD LIKE TO BEGIN OUR CEREMONY BY INTRODUCING OUR PLATFORM PARTY. IS HOLD YOUR APPLAUSE UNTIL THE PLATFORM PARTY MEMBERS HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED. [PLATFORM PARTY NAMES ARE READ] KARDINAL OFFISHAL, HONOURARY DEGREE RECIPIENT. EVERYONE, YOUR PLATFORM PARTY. [APPLAUSE] AT THIS TIME, I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE LIANNE HANNAWAY TO PROVIDE FROM OUR BOARD OF GOVERNORS.>>LIANNE HANNAWAY: GRADUATES, HONOUREES, PARENTS, FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, FACULTY, STAFF AND HONOURED GUESTS: IT IS MY PLEASURE TO BRING GREETINGS FROM HUMBER’S BOARD OF GOVERNORS. FIRST AND FOREMOST, CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR GRADUATES FOR ACHIEVING THE SUCCESS THAT WE ARE CELEBRATING HERE TODAY. YOU HAVE WORKED HARD TO COMPLETE YOUR PROGRAMS AND WE ON THE BOARD ARE PROUD OF YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS. TODAY IS A DAY TO SAY WELL DONE. [APPLAUSE] SECOND, THE BOARD WISHES YOU SUCCESS IN YOUR FUTURE ENDEAVOURS. YOU CAN MOVE FORWARD INTO YOUR CHOSEN FIELD WITH THE CONFIDENCE OF HAVING BEEN EDUCATED AT ONE OF CANADA’S PREEMINENT COLLEGES. THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS THAT YOU HAVE DEVELOPED AT HUMBER WILL PROVIDE AN EXCELLENT FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE SUCCESS. I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DID NOT ALSO RECOGNIZE AND THANK ALL OF THOSE PRESENT AND NOT PRESENT AT THE CEREMONY WHO HAVE SUPPORTED OUR GRADUATES IN THEIR STUDIES AT HUMBER. THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS UNDERSTANDS THE IMPORTANT AND CRUCIAL ROLE PLAYED BY PARENTS, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OTHER KEY SUPPORTERS IN EACH STUDENT’S LIFE. SO AGAIN, CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR GRADUATES AND BEST WISHES FOR THE FUTURE. [APPLAUSE]>>ALVINA CASSIANI: THANK YOU LEANNE. I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE PRESIDENT CHRIS WHITAKER TO SAY A FEW WORDS TO THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 2019. [APPLAUSE]>>CHRIS WHITAKER: THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE INTRODUCTION, ALVINA DUSTY. AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR DEAN LEADERSHIP AS DEAN OF THE BUSINESS SCHOOL. I THINK EVERYONE KNOWS THIS HAS BEEN QUITE A WEEK OF CELEBRATION IN TORONTO. AM I RIGHT? OKAY, OKAY. SO THIS MAY NOT BE A RAPTORS VICTORY PARTY, BUT LET’S HAVE SOME FUN TODAY. LET’S GET STARTED. MEMBERS OF THE PLATFORM PARTY, HONOURED GUESTS, FACULTY AND STAFF, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND ESPECIALLY OUR GRADUATES, IT’S MY PLEASURE TO WELCOME YOU TO TODAY’S CONVOCATION. THIS YEAR, WE’LL RECOGNIZE MORE THAN 10,000 GRADUATES ACROSS 10 CEREMONIES; A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER AND CERTAINLY A REASON TO CELEBRATE. THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING HERE WITH US TO MARK THE OCCASION. THANK YOU AS WELL TO ALL OF THE HUMBER EMPLOYEES WHO HELP TO MAKE THIS EVENT HAPPEN. A DAY LIKE THIS TAKES MANY PEOPLE TO PRODUCE. FROM WHEN OUR GRADUATES ARRIVE AND RECEIVE THEIR GOWNS TO WHEN THEY CROSS THE STAGE IN A FEW MINUTES, YOU, OUR STAFF AND FACULTY, WORK TIRELESSLY TO MAKE THIS DAY MEMORABLE FOR OUR GRADUATES AND THEIR FAMILIES AND WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR EFFORTS. [APPLAUSE] YES, WE CAN START THE APPLAUSE. THANK YOU. I’VE BEEN A PART OF MANY CONVOCATION CEREMONIES AS A PROFESSOR, AS A PRESIDENT AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, AS A PARENT. I SHARE THE MANY EMOTIONS THAT WE’RE ALL FEELING TODAY. THE PRIDE OF ACHIEVEMENT, THE JOY OF SUCCESS AND THE RELIEF THAT THIS SIGNIFICANT DAY HAS FINALLY COME. CONVOCATION IS MY FAVOURITE TIME OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR BECAUSE IT’S A TIME FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO CELEBRATE OUR STUDENTS’ ACHIEVEMENTS AND TO LOOK AHEAD TO THE NEW BEGINNINGS AND ABUNDANT POSSIBILITIES THAT AWAIT OUR GRADUATES. BEFORE WE RECOGNIZE THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS, I’D LIKE TO TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO THANK THOSE WHO HELPED OUR GRADS ALONG THE WAY. TO HUMBER’S FACULTY AND STAFF, THANK YOU FOR YOUR DEDICATION AND COMMITMENT. OUR STUDENTS WOULDN’T BE HERE WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT, WISDOM AND ENCOURAGEMENT. LET’S GIVE OUR FACULTY AND STAFF A BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE. [APPLAUSE] THANK YOU. THANK YOU ALSO TO FRIENDS, FAMILIES AND LOVED ONES FOR SUPPORTING OUR GRADUATES THROUGH THOSE INEVITABLE UPS AND DOWNS OF COLLEGE LIFE. YOUR SUPPORT COMES IN MANY WAYS: FINANCIAL, EMOTIONAL, FINANCIAL, LENDING A HELPING HAND. AND, DID I SAY FINANCIAL? OKAY, YOU GOT IT. I THINK YOU DESERVE A ROUND OF APPLAUSE AS WELL. [APPLAUSE] AND NOW TO OUR GRADUATES: YOU DID IT. YOU’VE EARNED THE SPOTLIGHT YOU’RE RECEIVING TODAY. THE SPOTLIGHT IS ON YOU NOT JUST BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU HAVE ACHIEVED, BUT BECAUSE YOU ARE THE LEADERS OF TOMORROW. ACCORDING TO AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED LAST YEAR IN THE HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW, GREAT LEADERS ARE CONFIDENT, CONNECTED, COMMITTED AND COURAGEOUS. ALL OF THESE ATTRIBUTES ARE WITHIN EACH OF YOU. YOU HAVE SPENT THE LAST WEEKS, MONTHS AND YEARS HONING YOUR SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE IN CLASSROOMS AND IN WORKPLACES. YOUR EXPERIENCES HAVE HELPED GROW YOUR CONFIDENCE. YOU ARE CONNECTED. YOU HAVE NETWORKED WITH FELLOW STUDENTS, FACULTY AND INDUSTRY REPRESENTATIVES THROUGHOUT YOUR PROGRAM. YOU ARE ALSO NOW PART OF THE GROWING COMMUNITY OF HUMBER ALUMNI AROUND THE WORLD WHO ARE MAKING THEIR MARK AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE. YOU ARE COMMITTED. YOU MADE THE DECISION TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE THROUGH EDUCATION AND HAVE PUT IN THE WORK TO GET TO THIS DAY. YOU ARE COURAGEOUS. AS STUDENTS, EACH OF YOU CAME TO HUMBER FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE; FROM HIGH SCHOOL OR ANOTHER POSTSECONDARY INSTITUTION, FROM A JOB, FROM ANOTHER CITY OR EVEN ANOTHER COUNTRY. IT TOOK COURAGE TO REACH THIS POINT AND IT WILL TAKE MORE IN THE FUTURE AS YOU ARE FACED WITH NEW SITUATIONS AND ENVIRONMENTS. SOME CONSIDER COURAGE TO BE AN INNATE CHARACTER TRAIT; SOMETHING YOU’RE BORN WITH. OTHERS CONSIDER COURAGE TO BE A SKILL; SOMETHING THAT YOU DEVELOP AND CAN STRENGTHEN OVER TIME. I BELIEVE IT IS A CHOICE. HERE AT HUMBER, WE CHOSE TO MAKE COURAGE ONE OF OUR STRATEGIC VALUES. WE NEED TO BE BOLD TO CHART A NEW COURSE WHEN IT COMES TO EDUCATION; TO CHANGE OUR PROGRAMS TO ENSURE THEY ARE RELEVANT, RESPONSIVE AND ANTICIPATE HOW THE WORLD IS EVOLVING; TO CHANGE HOW WE OPERATE TO GIVE OUR STUDENTS MORE CHOICE AND FLEXIBILITY. WE BELIEVE EVERYONE AT HUMBER SHOULD FEEL EMPOWERED TO MAKE BOLD CHOICES, TACKLE INEQUITY, AND TRY NEW THINGS. AND WE WANT THE SAME THING FOR OUR GRADUATES. WE WANT YOU TO LEAVE HUMBER WITH THE COURAGE TO ACT, TO TAKE RISKS AND TO FAIL. AND IF YOU FAIL, TO HAVE THE COURAGE TO GET UP, LEARN FROM WHAT YOU DID, AND TRY AGAIN. RIGHT NOW, THERE IS A SPECIAL ON NETFLIX BY UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON RESEARCH PROFESSOR BRENÉ BROWN, CALLED “THE CALL TO COURAGE”. AND YES, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I AM HIP ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT IS TRENDING ON NETFLIX. ACCORDING TO BROWN, COURAGE REQUIRES TWO THINGS: VULNERABILITY AND INVOLVEMENT. VULNERABILITY, SHE SAYS, IS NOT ABOUT WINNING OR LOSING. IT’S HAVING THE COURAGE TO SHOW UP WHEN YOU CAN’T CONTROL THE OUTCOME. IT’S HAVING THE COURAGE TO ADMIT YOU DON’T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS. IT’S PUSHING YOURSELF OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE BECAUSE THAT’S WHERE YOU’LL LEARN THE MOST. IT’S THE COURAGE TO LET YOURSELF CHANGE AND GROW. COURAGE IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER. AND YOU HAVE THE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE TO LEAD THE WAY. WE LIVE IN UNCERTAIN TIMES. ACROSS THE GLOBE, WE ARE ALL GRAPPLING WITH POLITICAL TENSIONS, THE CLIMATE CRISIS AND CHANGING ECONOMIES. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET INVOLVED AND BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD. REMEMBER THAT GLOBAL NETWORK OF HUMBER ALUMNI I MENTIONED? LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE OF SOMEONE WHO DID JUST THAT. RAHUL SINGH GRADUATED FROM HUMBER’S PARAMEDIC PROGRAM IN 1993. SOON AFTER, HE WAS BACK-PACKING IN NEPAL WHEN A SERIES OF LANDSLIDES WIPED OUT A VILLAGE. HE RAN A DISASTER RESPONSE TEAM TO HELP MANAGE THE CRISIS, BUT FOUND THAT MOST OF THE FUNDING GOT LOST IN ADMINISTRATION BEFORE GETTING TO THE PEOPLE WHO NEEDED IT. HE CHANGED THAT BY FOUNDING GLOBALMEDIC, AN ORGANIZATION THAT PROVIDES EFFICIENT AND COST-EFFECTIVE DISASTER RELIEF. GLOBALMEDIC HAS LED MORE THAN 50 MISSIONS IN MORE THAN 30 COUNTRIES. SINCE THEY STARTED, THEIR EFFORTS HAVE HELPED COUNTLESS PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD SURVIVE LIFE-THREATENING SITUATIONS FOLLOWING CATASTROPHES. IN 2009, RAHUL WAS NAMED ONE OF CANADA’S TOP 40 UNDER 40 AND IN 2010, HE WAS INCLUDED ON TIME MAGAZINE’S LIST OF 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. NOT BAD. ALL OF THAT BECAUSE HE HAD THE COURAGE TO BE THE CHANGE HE KNEW WOULD BENEFIT OTHERS. [APPLAUSE] YES, THAT IS GOOD. SO NO PRESSURE, BUT THE WORLD IS COUNTING ON YOU AND I KNOW YOU’RE UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. AS YOU MOVE ON, REMEMBER TO THINK CRITICALLY, TO QUESTION AND CHALLENGE WHAT SOME ACCEPT AT FACE VALUE AND SEEK WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE, GIVE BACK AND GET INVOLVED. YOU LEAVE HERE WITH A STRENGTHENED ABILITY TO MAKE SENSE OF THE WORLD; TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICES TO ENGAGE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS, EVEN WHEN IT ISN’T EASY. AS A HUMBER STUDENT, YOU HAVE BEEN PART OF ONE OF CANADA’S MOST DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE INSTITUTIONS, SO EMBRACE DIVERSITY IN ALL OF ITS FORMS. FROM RACE, RELIGION, PLACE OF ORIGIN, CULTURE, SEXUALITY, GENDER IDENTITY, AGE, TO ECONOMIC STATUS AND MORE, IT’S UP TO EACH OF US TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND SEEK TO UNDERSTAND THESE DIFFERENCES AND FIND WAYS TO BUILD BRIDGES, ESTABLISH COMMON GROUND AND BE ALLIES. YOU ARE NOW ONE OF THE MORE THAN 250,000 ALUMNI WHO ARE THE COLLEGE’S REPUTATION IN ACTION. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO CONTINUE IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS BY MAKING YOUR MARK ON THE WORLD, DOING YOUR COMMUNITY PROUD AND OF COURSE, KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH US; WE’LL KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR INSTAGRAM STORIES. [LAUGHTER] EVERYONE HERE IS PROUD OF ALL YOU HAVE ACHIEVED. YOU ARE NOW AND FOREVER PART OF THE HUMBER FAMILY, AND LIKE ALL FAMILIES, OUR DOORS ARE ALWAYS OPENED AND YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOMED HOME. SO BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE AMAZING. BECAUSE WE KNOW YOU CAN. CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]>>ALVINA CASSIANI: THANK YOU, PRESIDENT WHITAKER FOR THOSE INSPIRING WORDS. TODAY WE ARE PRESENTING AN HONORARY BACHELOR OF APPLIED STUDIES DEGREE TO JASON HARROW, WHO WILL BE INTRODUCED BY PAUL GRIFFIN, ASSOCIATE DEAN, LAKESHORE CAMPUS. [APPLAUSE]>>PAUL GRIFFIN: THANK YOU KINDLY. THE BUSINESS SCHOOL IS DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THIS YEAR’S HONORARY DEGREE RECIPIENT IS JASON HARROW, BETTER KNOWN PROFESSIONALLY AS KARDINAL OFFISHALL. KARDINAL IS A CANADIAN RAPPER, RECORD PRODUCER, DJ AND RECORD EXECUTIVE. HE IS OFTEN DESCRIBED AS CANADA’S HIP HOP AMBASSADOR, AND IS CONSIDERED ONE OF OUR NATION’S BEST HIP HOP PRODUCERS. IN ADDITION TO HIS WELL-DOCUMENTED SUCCESS, TODAY KARDINAL IS BEING RECOGNIZED AND HONORED FOR ATTRIBUTES WE WISH TO HOLD UP AS EXEMPLARS TO THIS YEAR’S GRADUATING CLASS AND TO THE ENTIRE HUMBER FAMILY. SPECIFICALLY: DETERMINATION, COMPASSION AND TRANSFORMING ONE’S TALENT AND ART INTO A LIFELONG VOCATION. IN ADDITION, KARDINAL IS A BELIEVER IN EDUCATION, SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY AND HELPING OTHERS IN NEED. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE BUSINESS SCHOOL IS PLEASED TO CONFER THIS YEAR’S HONORARY DEGREE TO KARDINAL OFFISHALL. [APPLAUSE] [CHEERING] WE KINDLY REQUEST THAT YOU TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO THE SCREEN AT THIS TIME AS WE PLAY A VIDEO HIGHLIGHTING KARDINAL’S OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS AND HIS WORDS TO THE GRADUATING CLASS. [APPLAUSE]>>PAUL GRIFFIN: PRESIDENT WHITAKER, MISSUS HANNAWAY, IT IS WITH GREAT HONOUR AND PLEASURE THAT WE ASK YOU TO CONFER UPON JASON HARROW THIS BACHELOR OF APPLIED STUDIES DEGREE. [APPLAUSE] [APPLAUSE]>>PAUL GRIFFIN: CARBONELL WOULD LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS TO THE GRADUATING CLASS. — CARTER NOW — KARDINAL.>>HOW IS EVERYONE FEELING TODAY? I’M GOING TO KEEP THIS SHORT BECAUSE THE REAL CHAMPIONS ARE THE RAPTORS, SO WE CAN MAKE SOME NOISE FOR THEM A LITTLE BIT. I JUST WANTED TO SAY, LOOKING OUT AT THIS BEAUTIFUL GRADUATING CLASS, THE REAL GRADUATE CHAMPIONS ARE YOU. I SEE SUCH A DIVERSE GROUP OF PEOPLE HERE TODAY. I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH A LOT, AND I’M GOING TO TELL YOU THAT THIS IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG. YOU WILL BE GOING THROUGH A LOT IN LIFE, BUT WITH A SOLID FOUNDATION, LIKE THE EDUCATION YOU HAVE RECEIVED AT HUMBER, NOTHING CAN STOP YOU. IT IS MY HONOUR TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU DURING POSSIBLY ONE OF THE BEST WEEKS TORONTO HAS EVER HAD. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IT WAS A REAL HONOUR TO RECEIVE THIS TODAY. [APPLAUSE]>>ALVINA CASSIANI: THANK YOU. WHILE. OKAY, WE HAVE AN ACHIEVEMENT AWARD TO PRESENT TODAY. THIS AWARD IS THE PRESIDENT’S MEDAL, WHICH WILL BE PRESENTED BY PRESIDENT WHITAKER. THE PRESIDENT’S MEDAL IS GIVEN TO ONE GRADUATE IN EACH SCHOOL WHO HAS MADE A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO THEIR SCHOOL AND TO HUMBER BY DEMONSTRATING LEADERSHIP AND PARTICIPATION IN BOTH THE ACADEMIC AND STUDENT LIFE OF THE COLLEGE WHILE MAINTAINING A STRONG OVERALL ACADEMIC AVERAGE. THE BUSINESS SCHOOL IS PLEASED TO HONOUR MACKENZIE BEACOCK WITH THIS YEAR’S PRESIDENT’S MEDAL. [APPLAUSE] WHILE. WHILE MACKENZIE IMMEDIATELY SOUGHT TO MAKE AN IMPACT IN A LEADERSHIP CAPACITY FROM THE BEGINNING OF HIS BACHELOR OF COMMERCE – INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS PROGRAM. HE WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT OF HUMBER DECA-U, AND ACTED AS A STRONG ADVOCATE FOR STUDENT INVOLVEMENT AND LED THE CHAPTER IN COMPETITION AT THE DECA-U INTERNATIONALS. BUILDING UPON THIS EXPERIENCE, MACKENZIE VOLUNTEERED FOR A LOCAL NOT-FOR-PROFIT, AND HELPED LEAD AN INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN COLOMBIA. HIS GROWING PASSION FOR INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS PUSHED HIM TO STUDY ABROAD FOR A SEMESTER IN IRELAND AND HE SECURED A 12-MONTH WORK TERM. IN HIS FINAL YEAR, MACKENZIE WAS ELECTED TO A BOARD-LEVEL ROLE FOR DECA-U, REPRESENTING HUMBER AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL AND BECOMING THE FIRST-EVER ELECTED STUDENT FROM A CANADIAN COLLEGE. [APPLAUSE] HE WAS ALSO RECOGNIZED FOR HIS OUTSTANDING INVOLVEMENT AND EFFORTS WITH THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS LEADERSHIP AWARD. IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE THAT THE BUSINESS SCHOOL PRESENTS THE 2019 PRESIDENTS METAL TO MACKENZIE COCK — MACKENZIE BEACOCK.
