Peter Dinklage’s commencement speech encourages the graduates to stay connected with their friends and loved ones and to "raise the rest of your life to meet you." Dinklage also tells the graduating students to be confident in themselves while also being frank and funny about his poverty and difficulties when he first started out as an actor.
