Watch the inspiring commencement given by Marissa Mayer below.  She is vice-president for search products and user experience at Google.

 

Advice from Marissa Mayer:

1. Find something you are really passionate about.

2. “It’s not what Zoon knows but how Zoon thinks”
Knowledge is not as important as the ability to view things in a different way.
Become a good problem solver instead of a memorizer.

3. Find the smartest people you can and surround yourself with them.

4. Find allies rather than adorers.

5. Find the courage to do things you are not ready to do.

6. Find places where you are comfortable.

7. Help other find things. Be an information foundtain.
