The main part in the Speech is how Steve Jobs encourages the students to pursue their dreams, and do what makes them happy, even if it all doesn’t go after the plan. Steve jobs opens the speech by a compliment for the students on Stanford University “I am hon-ored to be with you today for your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world.” First, he praises University by saying on of the finest University. He follows that showing the student’s humility by admitting he never graduated any kind of college, in few seconds, Jobs gave the student’s a very good reason to be proud. Steve jobs introduce the speech by using pathos because it appeals to the audience’s emotions. Steve jobs starts the speech in a humoristic way by telling the audience “Truth be told, this is the closest I 've ever gotten to a college graduation”.
In the book Outliers, Gladwell explains that the ‘hidden’ advantages you are given while growing up will have an affect on your accomplishments. Although Jobs worked extremely hard to become as successful as he did, he was granted some ‘hidden’ advantages. An example of an advantage Jobs was given was the opportunity to attend Reed college, where he met the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak. When he was adopted, Jobs birth parents made his new parents promise to send him to a good college. As a result of his parents saving their pennies for most of Jobs life, he was able to attend a top school, where he later would meet Wozniak.

They had to work hard to put my brother and me through college but they imbibed the value of knowledge in us from a young age. I took up engineering as a career due to my innate interest but I was the first in my family to attend a univeristy with diversified community or to choose chemical engineering. So, transition into university was one the hardest things I had to do. I could overcome this and turn things around thanks to the support from faculty, friends and mentors I met later

For the past three years I have dedicated myself to my education, making sure to attend every lecture regardless of the weather, my health, or my ever growing exhaustion level. I have become consumed with the concept of success, and failure is just not an option. Although things have not always been this way for me personally. I am passionate about school because I discovered social work, a blessing in disguise. My first semester of college I enrolled in a community college with my major listed as “General studies” because it sounds better than “Undecided.” I was straight out of a high school of less than 400 students and I was utterly clueless, and at the end of the semester my GPA reflected it.
I never lost sight of how important an education was but attendance wasn 't a realistic option. In the summer of 2010, after two more strokes and the amputation of both of his legs, my father passed due to the extent of his illness. Though his body couldn 't handle any more damage, he never stopped fighting and trying to rebuild his foundation and our doctor never stopped supporting him in
My father a stiff gentleman who grew up in the eighties, lived a life you couldn't imagine.

It wasn’t much of a surprise many members of my family had to take remedial math. The surprise came when I found out that I was still eligible to enroll just not in any math classes until I retook and passed the test. So I enrolled in classes and that first semester I took Micro Economies along with General Psychology. While my degree didn’t require two humanities it ended up paying off in the long run. In the beginning things went well.
