Human Resources Director Omar Reid delivered the commencement address to the graduating
class of North American University.
His message to graduates was:
1. The harder you are on yourself when no one is looking, the easier life is on you when everyone is looking.
2. There is a big difference between talent and desire.
3. Success is where opportunity meets preparation.
