First and foremost, 我要祝贺星际游戏平台所有人,尽管在大流行病期间星际游戏平台面临各种困难,但星际游戏平台成功地结束了星际游戏平台生活的这一篇章. We made it! Congratulations!

我想以我在中亚大学的经历作为我演讲的开始.

I come from the roof of the world, the Pamir mountains in Tajikistan, 这是一个自然美景和独特传统并存的地方,人们以善良著称, loving and hospitable. I grew up in a remote district of Ishkashim.

I remember when I was in 11th grade, 星际游戏平台学校的一位老师做了一个澳门星际网站星际游戏平台的演讲, highlighting its world-class education, qualified faculty, students from diverse backgrounds, and luxurious dormitories. It was all quiet fascinating. However, at the end of the presentation, 他说:“星际游戏平台学校学生被星际游戏平台录取的概率非常低.虽然演讲让我很兴奋,但最后一句话却让我怀疑自己. 我开始怀疑自己能否与来自大城市和名校的学生竞争. I am sure I was not alone in that overwhelming doubt, and perhaps thousands of students like me from rural, 孤立的地区也认为星际游戏平台这样的地方不适合星际游戏平台.

With an uncertain heart, 2017年4月,为了参加星际游戏平台的入学考试,我从伊什卡西姆驱车110公里来到霍罗格. 我的许多邻居、老师,甚至朋友都告诉我,这样做是在浪费时间. Nonetheless, 我进行了这次雄心勃勃的冒险,五年后的今天,我可以自豪地站在这个舞台上说,如果你相信自己,你的梦想是可以实现的. 我的人生能翻开新的一页,要感谢那些同样信任我的人——我已故的祖父, who would have been proud of me today, my parents, and my Math and English teachers at school.

The journey started. The welcome we received from Erik Krauss, the former Manager of Student Affairs, our Student Life Team, and the Class of 2021 was heart-warming. 然而,等待星际游戏平台的生活并不是一帆风顺的. 从一所以塔吉克语教学的高中毕业, 一开始我不能完全理解我的老师. I was even scared to share my room, 要适应充满幻想和不可估量的星际游戏平台显然是一个挑战. But the love, 星际游戏平台受到的善意和关怀使星际游戏平台很容易适应大学生活,忘记了乡愁.

我分享我的故事的原因是想说明,我不是今天唯一一个真正感到高兴和成功的人. We have all come a long way to celebrate this day, 星际游戏平台一直在做着坚定的努力,去追逐隧道尽头的光明. Though we have worked hard, really hard, 星际游戏平台不应忘记,星际游戏平台的成功很大程度上与周围人民的慷慨支持有关. Therefore, 我想对每一个为这次改变人生的经历做出贡献的人说声谢谢.

First of all, 我要特别感谢阿迦汗殿下, 感谢中亚大学的校长和董事会对这所致力于中亚山区社区的大学的卓越远见和支持. 正是因为你的远见卓识,星际游戏平台才有机会接受如此高质量的高等教育.

在此,我要向全体教师致以最深切的感谢,感谢他们对教学和指导的奉献精神, helping us gain and master valuable skills and knowledge. 感谢您在星际游戏平台缺乏进一步工作的动力的时候,推动星际游戏平台在学术上达到更高的高度.

I would like to thank the Senior Management, Administration, 运营团队和所有星际游戏平台员工为学院的顺利和安全运行做出了巨大贡献.

The Student Life Team for working relentlessly, supporting us under any circumstances, and making life on campus more exciting and engaging, thank you.

And most importantly, 我要感谢每一位一直在星际游戏平台身边的家长, supporting our decisions and helping us to achieve our goals.

And last but not least, 让我感谢所有的朋友和同学,在事情进展不顺的时候挺身而出.

Each of us has had our own unique experience at 星际游戏平台, a combination of good and bad times, those of last-minute preparations for the exams, or coming together to help each other to finish assignments, 或者上课迟到,尽管从宿舍走到学术区只需要五分钟, or coming to morning classes in pajamas and slippers, 或者在校园周围的美丽风景中享受旅行, 并发展新的和更牢固的友谊,这肯定会持续到永远. 星际游戏平台不仅是星际游戏平台的大学,更是星际游戏平台的第二故乡. 星际游戏平台不仅在星际游戏平台取得了学术上的成功,而且找到了一个实现梦想的机会,通过成长和为星际游戏平台的职业生涯做准备.

Today, 在这个毕业典礼上,星际游戏平台生命中一个重要的篇章即将结束, 我相信很多人都会对大学毕业后的生活感到焦虑和恐惧, the life out of the yellow spaceship. 但我相信,星际游戏平台今天毕业的每一个人都有潜力和能力成为通过教育寻求改变自己和世界的灵感来源.

When leaving the campus today, be proud of yourself and your achievements, with hearts filled with hope, look forward to a bright future, but do not forget that learning does not end here, 这是一个终身的旅程,星际游戏平台留下了不可否认的重要印记.

我想用弗雷德里克·罗伯逊曾经说过的话来结束我的演讲, “Instructions end in the schoolroom, but education ends only with life.”

Congratulations, the Class of 2022!
