Keynote speech by Dr. Matt Reed,CEO AKF India at the 2015 Aga Khan Academy Hyderabad GraduationHeadmaster Fisher, Respected Guests, Esteemed Graduates:

The first time I set foot at an Aga Khan Academy, some six years ago, I was viscerally struck by the incredible symbolism of hope and respect that the Academies represent.

The campus seemed to say: this country, your youth, these students merit an institution of the highest quality and integrity. They have the intelligence and the talent and the potential to transform countries and lives through their creativity, their values, their service, and their leadership.

And so I am truly honored to be here today and to have this opportunity to celebrate with you, to recognize your achievements, and to help launch the next phase of your lives. I am confident that you will draw on all you have learned here, intellectually and emotionally, as you find yourselves, you find your ways in the world, and in so doing shape all our futures.

Dr. Fisher asked me to speak today about the future.
