Improvisation, Amelia Earhart, and the Process: Amelia Bane’s Graduation Speech

GGI Alumni Amelia Bane’s graduation speech at the February 2017 commencement explored not just how to give a speech, but the power of improvisation, dwelling in uncertainty, and trusting the process (as opposed to going with the flow). Amelia is a stand-up comic who has performed widely at clubs, festivals, and other venues. Her study at Goddard focused on improvisational techniques for people living with attention deficit challenges. Here’s her very funny and moving talk in which she even managed to quote Michelle Obama and Melania Trump at once.
