Salman Khan challenges MIT grads to resist cynicism

Via The Boston Globe:

“Salman Khan, the founder of Khan Academy, told MIT graduates Friday that even though they are graduating from a leading science and engineering institution, they still face a world filled with cynicism and pessimism, and challenged them to resist those attitudes.

‘That cynicism will eat at your energy and potential, and to fight it, you should smile with every atom in your body,’ Khan said.”

I encourage you to watch the entire adress, where Sal Khan encourages “the wizards of tomorrow” to innovate and foster social change.
