Description

Speaking with passion and humor, Graduate Student Speaker Malcolm J. Rio MArch 15 urged his peers to “utilize the revolutionary, transformative abilities” cultivated at RISD and remember to never be afraid of failing. “If you fail to appreciate your failure and only focus on success, you risk becoming blind to the plight of others. You risk becoming more afraid and you risk becoming more isolated,” he said. “Failure is a critical foundation for creative success…. It is the root of our ability to imagine, to make and to act.”
