Robert Zarco, founding partner of powerhouse law firm Zarco Einhorn Salkowski & Brito, P.A. recently had the honor of delivering the commencement speech at Florida International University’s South Campus December graduation.
The ceremony took place on December 15th, with more than 6,000 people in attendance. The self-made and highly charismatic attorney delivered a motivational speech to the new grads, giving them some valuable advice for the future.
“You are sitting on your launching pad into an exciting, unrestricted, yet unpredictable and challenging future where today’s plans are not likely to be tomorrow’s reality,” said Zarco in an attempt to give the kids some perspective. He emphasized the uncertainty of what laid before the new grads and explained that in order to navigate this reality, “Individuals must possess and exercise their own power in order to achieve a level of success in life as defined by each graduate’s own priorities.”
