Graduation Speeches 2017. Day 8

This is the last week of speeches this year. All the speakers this week had not signed for the graduation speeches delivery but they changed their minds as soon as they listened to the first speakers. Paula and Daniel were the first. I hope the experience has been worth it.

Mario, who delivered his speech last month, introduced Daniel.

And Irina presented Paula

Graduation Speeches 2017. Day 7

Uxía had to change the date of her speech several times - due to lots of differents issues: dates of exams, meetings.... I forgot to remind her classmates of the last change so very few people showed up, but she did not seem to care. There were her closest friends.

It turned out to be a really moving session. It is hard to stand in front of friends and family, thank them and tell them how much they have helped you, but it pays, and Uxía and Sabela learnt that today.

Sabela introduced Uxía

Thank you!

Graduation Speeches 2017. Day 6

María and Lucía read their speeches last Friday. They were presented by two very close friends

Carmen took the stage to present María. It was a long presentation so she needed the podium:

And then Fátima presented Lucía

And when Lucía started speaking, we all felt so envious of her beautiful English accent !

And, as usual, the audience enjoyed the speeches, smiled, laughed, listened to the speakers and had a great time at break! 

Thank you all for being there and for being so respectful!

Graduation Speeches 2017. Day 5

Two speakers and two presenters

Manuel´s twin brother, José, presented him:

Alberto presented his friend Carlos, and he felt so well while doing so that he decided, right there and then,  he wanted to give a speech as well. Good for him!

And, once again, we have to thank the audience: all those friends who give up their break to come and listen to the speeches ( and cheer the speakers) and those relatives who are very often thanked and mentioned in them. Thanks!
