  • Loved the graduation ceremony. was long, but I loved how many people sent in their videos. Was interesting to see that 98% of them were female. Only thing that would have been better is if it was in alphabetical order, like a real graduation and also so I would know how close to the end it was. Loved seeing some of the creativity in there.
