My Daughter Macy Elizabeth Graduated Nursing School | Watch Her Best Commencement Speech Student Delivery

In May, my daughter Macy graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) degree from the University of North Georgia!  Surpassing herself and fulfilled the ultimate life role as she took the oath/pledge of Nursing as President of her class was an ultimate checkmark in the book of life. As President of her college class, Macy’s speech exceeded any first speech I’ve ever heard. 

Her Bachelors in Science (BSN) in Nursing Degree | Best Nursing Speech Student

When she fulfilled the ultimate life role as she took the oath/pledge of Nursing as President of her class, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a BSN (Bachelors of Science in Nursing) degree from University of North Georgia college I was ecstatic! To me, her commencement speech exceeded any first speech I’ve ever heard, but yes, I am biased.

Wanting to cry, I knew I couldn’t because the video camera would begin to shake. My heart was literally exploding with joy for the young lady that my daughter had become. Her words were so well spoken. Her demeanor full of grace and wit for the medical profession that holds a large piece of her heart and many of her waking hours. I loved that she made her colleagues and teachers laugh out loud. Bursting with pride, although I along many of others in the audience had no idea what a Hesi or EIQ was, I hung on every word she spoke.

As President of Her Class, She Delivered An Awesome Commencement Speech

Even if the speaker is my daughter, this is still the best graduation speech outside of a professional commencement speaker such as the late Steve Jobs. On the day of Macy’s college commencement and nursing pinning ceremony, I was extremely nervous for her. As a public speaker, I know how hard it is to stand in front of an audience, but much less an audience of faces you know and recognize. To add an allergy attack on top of it, and losing her voice, I was even more worried but I did not express my worries.

Without further ado, listen to Macy’s first ever public speech as she addresses the University of North Georgia College Nursing Class of 2018:

As her mom, she earned her ROCKSTAR status at the ripe age of 17 when she graduated high school a year early even though she missed almost a complete half year of high school with our move from Georgia to Las Vegas. Nonetheless, graduating at the top of her high school class to pursue a degree in healthcare made my heart sing.

Always aspiring to help people but Macy’s initiative. The medical and first responder profession is one of the most ultimate sacrifices. They put their selves in the way of diseases daily.  Considering Macy grew up with a mother who passed out at the sight of blood, you can imagine my ultimate joy and disconnection at the same time. Heavens! I can’t even take a whiff of vomit without adding more to the mix while Macy spent an internship doing just that. 

Maybe My Parenting Skills Paid Off?

Most importantly, she showed me that somewhere along the way, maybe just an ounce or two of my days of parenting the only child to that I have given life to paid off in the form of her love and compassion for others. At the end of the day, her successes as an adult are my greatest joy which is hard to imagine considering how cute she was a kid.

After the Graduation – Boyd & Went Back to Reality & Casa Wynwood

After the commencement and nurse pinning ceremony, we were off to celebrate at the graduation party and planning for her wedding before moving out of Casa Wynwood 1.0.

Christi Tasker
Christi Tasker For more than 10 years, Christi Tasker was a nationally acclaimed award-winning retailer and interior designer. While she treasured and nurtured her gift boutique and interior design company, she ultimately discovered her true passion – MARKETING and BRANDING! With an eye for detail that only comes from a skilled and experienced designer, Christi learned the secrets to creating a clear, concise brand – one both unmistakable and unforgettable − that would stand out from the crowd. The interest in marketing and branding for businesses actually had its beginning in her family. As did many devoted moms, Christi shadowed her then eleven-year-old daughter, Macy, whenever she ventured online. On one particular day, Christi had an epiphany as she watched Macy scour MySpace for any news in the virtual world of “Webkinz.” Christi placed an order for those lovable furry friends, with their special codes for use with online games, and when they arrived, she shared the news on MySpace, not knowing at the time that she had crafted her first social media campaign. When the college gates went down on Facebook, Christi immediately became one of the first non-college friends of Facebook. And more than just a casual user, she quickly discovered a side of Facebook that only programmers knew about – The Facebook Developer − full of options and tools to help companies better use the web. Christi quickly recognized that marketers either needed to be formally educated about social media or needed a partner to manage their sites. She launched a social media marketing company, which today provides social media branding, strategy, monitoring and training worldwide. Before long, she realized her ability to keep up with her many social media accounts was hampered by the lack of a suitable tool to keep everything in one place. Christi decided the best way to do a job properly was to “do it yourself” and developed PuTTin’ OuT (Socially Accepted) a set of tools to moderate, manage, create, schedule, and publish content, and automatically engage people, all in a single package. In early 2009, Christi began traveling nationally as a social media expert speaker for various brands and businesses, and today is a sought-after social media keynote speaker at the foremost conferences worldwide. she also appears on NBC as a social media advisor/expert.
