Her speech, delivered with classmate Tanjit Minhas on June 19 at Seaquam Secondary:Skye: Thank you Mr. Mundy for that lovely introduction. 20,196,329.17 seconds. That’s how much time we spent sitting at our desks, fiddling on our phones, frantically filling in scantron bubbles, and making our way towards this very moment. The moment we cross the stage, diploma in hand. The first day of the rest of our lives.
Her speech, delivered June 21 at Chandos Pattison Auditorium in Surrey:Hi everyone! I’d like to take a moment to again welcome our parents, family, friends, teachers, administrators and special guests. To the grads of 2017, we are finally here! I’m going to take a minute and make the adults in the audience feel old, but then again, we might be the last grad class to make you feel young.
WORDS OF THE WISE: “While we may have no idea where each other may be in another decade, we pray that these final weeks may not just be times of sadness and goodbyes, but of hope for the future. Who knows where our paths may cross again?”Thank you so much for coming out tonight to share in the end of this chapter of our story. As high school draws to a close, we all find ourselves gathered together to share in a grand finale of sorts, before we branch out towards our separate paths and journeys.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
