Who do you dedicate this 🎓 moment? • • • • •
”No is only no until it is YES.”
Today was #Hult#commencement. I graduated from #MBA and should take this moment to thank all of my family especially my mom who brought me up to this, and my wife who supported me in the path, and my brother who motivated me and all other family members, professors and friends.
I owe all of you and couldn't make it without you. - @shegefti #HultGrad#HultMoment#Hult#Classof2018
MBA: ✔️ A year ago, I would not have imagined how much this experience would change me. But, it has, and I wouldn’t change this for the world. Thank you to everyone who has supported me through this year. From my friends to my classmates, to my family, y’all are the real MVPs, and I’m so grateful to each of you. To my HULT family, you rock, and I cherish all of the friendships I’ve made with you all. The biggest thanks to my parents for supporting me financially and emotionally, and being my biggest cheerleaders throughout this entire experience. You deserve this more than me, so this is dedicated to you. I love and thank y’all with all my heart.
As for me, it’s on to the next one! Masters of Disruptive Innovation, here I come!
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” - T.

⚠️ LAST GRADUATION POST 😂
A year ago, I never imagined that I will ever leave my business back in the Philippines. A year ago, I was a stranger to San Francisco. A year ago, I never thought that I will build friendships and networks from over 90 countries around the globe.
That was a year ago. Look what there is today – finished my MBA with honors, starting a new chapter of my life here in San Francisco, and built global relationships that will transcend a lifetime. I am grateful for my family, my AFPH family, and friends for giving me the support that I need to make all these possible. As I represent every aspect of my being through what I wear, I couldn’t be more proud to show what I am made of – a Filipino (barong and flag), a Hultian (Hult sash), and a hard worker who will never give up on my dream (golden cord). A year ago, I just wanted to get a diploma that certifies that I am Ferry Chavez, MBA. After a year, I want to represent the things that I am deeply passionate about with the learnings that I got from this MBA journey. Moving forward I vow to live a life of passion and purpose in order to contribute to the well-being of this world.
Might not achieved everything that I wanted but I’m leaving @hultbusinessschool with ZERO regrets and ALL the motivation to do good.
Life is a big waitlist only if we allow it to be. Hult taught me to live in the now and act in the now because the world needs our genius now – For God. For the Philippines. For the greater good.
