Young preschooler's graduation speech captivated audiences, making it a memorable sight to watch.
Public speaking can be a daunting task for many individuals. The ability to stand before an audience and comprehensively deliver one's thoughts and emotions can be challenging. However, some people have a natural flair for it and manage to amaze audiences with their speaking abilities. In a viral video by u/mindyour, we can see a confident preschooler giving a firecracker farewell speech at his graduation ceremony that had audiences applauding him. Pre-school graduation ceremonies are not usually significant, but this little man managed to make the whole event a memorable experience for his fellow classmates and their parents. The post has gained over 58.1K upvotes.
The cute little boy begins the speech by saying, "As we travel the road to college, there are four stops." He states that all these "stops" are filled with "knowledge" that he and his classmates must "conquer." The boy proceeds to say the first stop, pre-school, was now completed, with a fist pump. He says the second stop is elementary school. After which, he confidently remarks that the third stop, which is middle school, will be very easy, eliciting laughter from the audience. The fourth stop is high school and he declares, "We will go in ready to lead."
He then says they have been asked to dream big and believe in themselves. The boy then states that he is confident that his batch will, in time, receive an acceptance letter to Ivy League colleges. He then gives everyone a preview of what the acceptance letter will contain. After this, he thanks all the parents for their "patience and constant reminders of our intellectual talents." He then speaks about how it's ok to make mistakes and that everyone makes them from time to time. The boy finally ends his speech by saying, "I'm Master Caleb Stewart, your future businessman and CEO of Brilliant Little Leaders Worldwide, an organization designed to inspire others to read, dream big and believe in themselves. We are 2019 graduates. Thank you!"

What a future superstar, in whatever he chooses to do - kids clearly advanced." Another college student, u/perfectmonkey, shared their fears and said, "I'm a Ph.D. student and dang, I'm still nervous talking in front of a crowd. This bro memorized a whole speech and gave it with such confidence! Inspiring."
Complimenting the speech and comparing it to their high school graduation speech, u/Caedo14 shared, "Bro, what? That was better than my high school valedictorian's speech." u/manjeete predicted, "He will be a great orator one day. He is pretty good right now as well. Way to go, young man."
