Each of You Have the Power
to Change the World
Commencement Speech by Nobel Laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus
at Massachusetts Institute of Technology on June 6, 2008
It is a very special privilege for me to speak at the commencement ceremony of this prestigious institution.
What a wonderful feeling to be here today. To be with all of you, some of the brightest minds in the world, right at a moment when you decide the path you will embark on in life. You represent the future of the world. The choices that you will make for yourself will decide the fate of mankind.
