Ms Natalie Sue Ying Ung, Diploma of Hospitality Graduate - Aug 2013

Thank you for attending our ACAE Graduation Ceremony. I think everyone would agree, including my fellow graduates, when I say that this would be another moment highlighted in our lives. I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to all our lecturers who have taught us with patience, guidance with their endless support. I am grateful to each of you for guiding me through my course of studies and also for sharing your fountain of knowledge with me.

On graduation day, there are always mixed emotions. On one hand, we are leaving behind the comforts of college to a new and exciting career adventures. And the other hand, some of us decides to continue the path in studies. Well, some of us may have no idea what the future holds but whatever we are feeling right now or whatever we may decide in the end, we will always have our dear friends that we’ve made along the way for support and friendship.

Speaking of friends, some of my friends will return to their countries after this graduation. I will sadly miss them as I may not get a chance to see them in a long time. These are friends who have shared laughter and tears through exam stress, group assignments and long coffee breaks. These are friends who shared something special in my life which I will always cherish and remember.

On this special occasion, I would also like to extend my gratitude to my parents and those who have encouraged and motivated me. They have been my pillar of strength throughout the years. Without them, I would not have made it this far and move on to the future.

Without further a due, I would like to end my speech by congratulating each of you and wishing a splendid journey for the future. So now, let us celebrate our success tonight till sunrise!

Thank you sincerely
