Justin Trudeau's commencement speech took place at the University of Ottawa, and it emphasizes the importance of the recent grads being true to themselves and following their passions.

The Canadian Prime Minister begins his speech by talking about how different things are now than when he was a young grad, with the Internet and social media being a part of the daily lives of students – a fact that was not the case when he was in school. He emphasized that the change of pace has never been this fast, and yet it'll never be this slow again.

With this in mind, he tells the recent grads that it is important for them to stay true to themselves as they continue learning in life, and that the measure of success will not be what they have received from the world, but by what they give it.
