UNH Manchester graduates told NH has plenty to offer
"I was told one time that one person can't change the world," said Ashley Potter, who received a degree in sign language interpretation and delivered the student address. "I think that person is wrong. I firmly believe that the existence of one person can change the world. And I firmly believe that this group of people, sitting here today, will change the world."
"A college degree is a family, as well as an individual, achievement. And our thanks go to your family and loved ones for their support of you during these years of your education," he said.
Stacey Marie Lee, a Merrimack native who also received a bachelor's degree in English, said she hopes to pursue a master's in education and become a teacher.
Hassan told the group that they need to remember that they have worked too hard to let obstacles stop them.
"A gentle reminder from your governor: we are Granite Staters, we are Americans and we are supposed to do hard things," she said.
