Mihaela Coman: Graduate Story – Graduation Speech

Mission Done Right

Mihaela Coman first expressed her love of F.I.R.S.T. Institute. Coman was pleased to see that F.I.R.S.T.’s mission of preparing each student for an entry level position was successful! Coman was in the Recording Arts & Show Production program at F.I.R.S.T. and details the different softwares she learned along the way as well as equipment she got to get her hands on.


Why F.I.R.S.T.?

Coman mentions that when she applied for F.I.R.S.T. Institute she was thinking of what was most valuable to her. She loves the fact that this school got right to the point with graduates finishing in a year’s time. There was no “fluff” in the education so she could immediately gain the experience she needed to succeed in her program.

Follow Your Passion

Now graduation is happening… what now? Mihaela Coman wants you to consider three things as a graduate. First off, follow your passion. Don’t do things for the money because as long as you’re doing what you love… everything else will come later. Coman mentions that she was passionate about dancing earlier in her life and took classes to be the very best she could be. She says she did a lot of performances and work for free, but it didn’t matter to her because she was doing what she loved. Soon after though, she was contacted by a casting agency to dance for a commercial. This was hugely successful and from this she believes you should always follow your dreams.

Learning is Power

Everything that you have learned during your time at F.I.R.S.T. Institute will come in handy one day. You may not realize it in the moment, but the skills you have honed will be useful and may even surprise you. Life has a way of twisting and turning, and you never know how the experiences you had at F.I.R.S.T. can benefit you even ten years from now. Nothing is wasted, education is an investment.

Your Work Benefits Others

Have the intention that your work benefits others. Not only will you have no regrets, but it will also shape your mindset, actions, relationships, events, outcomes, and more.

Be Your Own Hero

As new students arrive at F.I.R.S.T. Institute, they look up to those graduate spotlights to see who is doing big things. Make that person YOU! Why not go big and do what you’re dreaming of to inspire those that will come after you.
