Congratulations to the High School Class of 2020, wherever you are in the world, and welcome to the Real World!
However, before you embark on this journey, I have a big surprise for all of you in terms of what awaits you. Unlike prior generations of high school graduates, your role and responsibility over the next 4 years (The Class of 2024) is going to be quite different.
