I, David Austin, to the seniors of Grant Magazine, hereby leave the following sage advice:
Luke Bolton – Never use the phrase “The Wooooorst” when you are at college; keep in mind that you belong at the top when you are at Pratt; stay at the front of the line because you belong there; and continue to lead like you led Grant Mag this year and you will go far.
Alex Gerald – Keep the ‘fro, ‘cause it’s in our genes; get your dress game on for NYC; never forget how you guided people in magazine as it was always marvelous to watch; know that your written and spoken words should give you major swagger; and my family will always have a place for you on the couch.
Rachel Germundson – Leave the horse at home because I know you can do it on your own; find your confidence and keep it centered; have lovely conversations and the world opens up; and remember to never be scared of taking on new things.
Ahren Lahvis – If you ever stumble, remember what you did in your time on Grant Mag; talk more because what you have to say matters; walk with a swagger; and think about coming back to help teach some profile writing to future Grant Mag kids.
Madeline Metz – Don’t ever let your hair go flat; do NOT procrastinate ever again; keep sharing your wisdom; keep in touch with your sister so she can survive Grant Mag; and ALWAYS be good to your mom.
Maya Montgomery – Always trust your core group because they care deeply; stretch yourself and talk to people – they will listen to your wisdom and could probably use it; find a good boat to bloody your knuckles; truck someone at Hamilton just for the fun of it; and remember that home is in the newsroom atmosphere you helped create.
Zoey Neville – Remember that 15 minutes early is on time; continue to be tenacious; never give up on a story that you know is good; please send baked goods to the Grant Mag newsroom once in a while; and remember to get in a routine that you own once you’re at college.
Kosumo Tani-Hughes – Speak up so the world hears what you have to say; know that when something is uncomfortable for you that’s a good thing – it will bring out a new side of you; and do what makes you happiest.
You guys are great and we got out all eight. Easily, they are the best ever in Grant Mag history. Go forth and do your best.
