現年47歲的好萊塢女星珍妮佛嘉納(Jennifer Garner),今年5月中應邀回母校丹尼森大學(Denison University)擔任畢業典禮的演講嘉賓,她於1994年從這裡畢業。

與不少「以天下興亡為己任」等沉重主題的其他知名大學畢業典禮演講相比,嘉納的主題相對輕鬆活潑,她以自己畢業超過20年的生活與職涯經驗,勉勵學弟妹出了社會要對自己負責,記得時時充實自己,並鼓勵女生要勇敢走向世界。

以下摘錄嘉納的演講內容:

∎ Don't walk down the Grand Canyon to see what it looks like from the bottom. It's great from the top – you should do that. But when you get to the bottom, it's just a big hill, and it's a pain in the a-- to climb back up.

別走到大峽谷下面,只是想從底下看看長什麼樣子。從上面看下去很棒,大家應該這麼做。如果走到最下面,看起來就只是個大山丘,而且要爬上來超累的。

∎ Don't smoke and don't vape. We know, vaping smells like maple syrup or pineapple or cotton candy, whatever it is. But now that you're going to be adulting, it's not cute – just don't do it.

別抽菸,也別抽電子菸。當然,抽電子菸聞起來很像楓糖漿、鳳梨或棉花糖的味道,但現在現在你要當大人了,這麼做一點都不酷,所以就別了。

∎ Impose self-discipline around three things: Have a book on your bedside table at all times – and read it, obviously. Be in charge of your consumption of social media. And foster a sense of humor about yourselves because otherwise, you run the risk of being boring.

這三件事情要自我要求:床頭隨時要放一本書,當然要記得看;使用社交媒體要好好控制;培養對自己的幽默感,否則你會變得很無趣。

∎ If you're a woman and – pardon me for being binary for just a second. The stage has been set. The world is yours to grab. Go out and get it, girl.

如果你是女生,不好意思我只把性別分成兩個。你的舞台已經搭好了,外面的世界任你發揮,女孩們勇敢走出去吧。

∎ Finally, stay close to your friends from college. You’ve just spent four years hanging out with them. That history is invaluable. Work friends, you talk to them about work. Lovers, you talk to them about love and dinner reservations.

最後,要跟大學認識的朋友保持密切關係,大家已經花了四年跟他們在一起,這段經驗非常寶貴。你只會跟工作上的朋友談工作,只會跟情人談情說愛與晚餐約會。

But friends from college, you can talk to them about everything and you can do nothing with them and still be happy.

但在大學認識的朋友,你會跟他們無所不聊,就算沒能在一起做什麼,還是會很開心。

My friends from Denison mean the world to me, have gotten me through everything possible.

我在丹尼森大學認識的朋友,對我就是全世界,他們讓我體會了可以想到的所有事情。
