Susan Wojcicki's JHU commencement speech makes a splash

Huffington Post highlights the YouTube CEO's advice to JHU grads: Good opportunities are often "messy, confusing, and hard to recognize."

During her speech to the Johns Hopkins University class of 2014, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki noted that the best opportunities are often hard to spot.

"Life doesn't always present you with the perfect opportunity at the perfect time," Wojcicki said. "Opportunities come when you least expect them, or when you're not ready for them. Rarely are opportunities presented to you in the perfect way, in a nice little box with a yellow bow on top. … Opportunities, the good ones, they're messy and confusing and hard to recognize. They're risky. They challenge you."

Wojcicki's wise words were featured in Huffington Post's round-up of "13 inspiring, important bits of wisdom from women commencement speakers in 2014", alongside remarks by Michelle Obama, Jill Abramson, Madeleine Albright, and Sandra Bullock.
