Source: Sef Scott knew he was about to do something unexpected when he addressed the senior class of Plano Senior High at a graduation ceremony on June 9 in Frisco, Texas.
Normally, he doesn’t choose to speak, he told a crowd gathered in a sports arena that seats thousands. That’s because he is a student with learning differences: autism and a social communication disorder, he said.
But he came prepared to do something unexpected.
He spoke for about six minutes, giving an inspirational, uplifting message: Defy expectations, live the life you want to live and surprise the world with kindness.
A video of the speech was posted to the Plano Independent School District’s YouTube page.
