Define Yourself, Charlie Rose Tells Class of 2008

“You define yourself; don’t dare let anyone else tell you who you are,” award-winning interviewer Charlie Rose told Fordham University’s graduating class. “Promise me and everyone else here that no one will define you, no one will put a ceiling on you because of your race, religion, background, gender or age.”

Rose delivered the keynote address to 4,300 graduates and more than 10,000 family members and friends under crystal blue skies at the University’s 163rd commencement on Saturday, May 17, on the Rose Hill campus.
