At Walden’s 59th commencement in Tampa, Florida, in January, I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with our keynote speaker, Soledad O’Brien. It was a humbling experience to interview the award-winning journalist, documentarian, and producer. She is as personable and passionate in real life as she is on TV. I invite you to watch the interview as we discuss her journey as a nontraditional student, the importance of building bridges to effect positive social change, and the responsibility of speaking up and sharing one’s own story in order to truly make a difference.
