尊敬的俞校长，Vice Chancellor Lehman，上海纽约大学的老师、同学们、家长，大家好！
Chancellor Yu, Vice Chancellor Lehman, NYU Shanghai faculty members, students, parents, ladies and gentlemen, good evening!
Today marks a very important day in your lives.
It is a pleasure and honor, during this extraordinary time and through this unique way, to join this important moment. Thank you Mr. Chancellor, teachers and students. You all make this Medal of Honor feel even more special and I cherish it deeply.
Today is your graduation day.
Graduates this year face major challenges. Upon graduation you have to deal with a global pandemic, and whether you are looking for work or want to continue studying, you will confront unprecedented challenges that could not have been imagined. But, this is life.
However, the class of 2020 has taken one more course and earned one credit more than any other class. And while this course has no exams, it is more important than any other course at school. Because of this pandemic, because of this disaster, you are studying and reflecting on today’s great global changes. You are contemplating what responsibilities you will personally take, how to change yourself to adapt to the future. It is very hard for us to change yesterday, or to change today, but small accomplishments today can change tomorrow and change our future. This course is just beginning. And just like you, I am also only beginning to learn.
Today, we already see the world faced with an unprecedented, once in a century crisis.
But, humans possess unprecedented resources and wealth. We also have unprecedented technological capability. Of course, we also face unprecedented difficulties and challenges.
To solve today’s problems and challenges is the greatest opportunity for your generation. This is also the real opportunity for you to create value for the world.
我想，21世纪的毕业生，抓住机遇，拥有未来，我们需要三观，就是全球观，未来观，还有全局观。我们也需要三商，需要有IQ（智商），需要EQ（情商），还需要LQ（爱商)，the Q of Love。
I believe in order for 21st century graduates to fully grasp these opportunities and embrace the future, you need to have 3 views: a global view, a view of the future and a comprehensive view. You also need to have 3 Qs: IQ, EQ and LQ (the Q of Love).
To have a global view, you do not need to know a foreign language, but you must respect and understand different cultures. No people or nation are the same. They are and will continue to be different. Today’s global problems are a result of our focus on too many differences. Identifying differences among us is not something to be praised. What is truly praiseworthy is to see through our differences and put faith in our common areas, to have the ability to put aside our differences and walk forward together.
面向未来的年轻人，我们需要有三种商：智商，情商和爱商。IQ、EQ and LQ。IQ高的人不太容易失败，EQ高的人机会会很多，但是只有LQ高的人才能受人尊重。未来机器可能会取代人类很多工作，但机器只有芯片，它没有心，人类有爱，这是机器不可能取代人类的。
Young people that look to the future should also have IQ, EQ and LQ. People with high IQ do not fail easily. People with high EQ can find more opportunities. But only people with high LQ can win the respect of others. In the future, machines may replace people in a lot of jobs, but machines only have chips. They don’t have a heart. Love is the only thing that cannot be replaced by machine.
Today is a new beginning. The road ahead is full of challenges, but also full of hope. I believe that as long as we work hard together, study together, we can definitely help the world step into a better future. And I believe you all will make it！
Once again congratulations and best wishes to everyone. Thank you.
