Even when my childhood was filled with some of her brutal pragmatism,

尽管我的童年充满了她那种残酷的实用主义思想,
she always gave us a tremendous amount of love and encouragement.
但她总是给予我们莫大的爱和鼓励。
And what mattered most to me were the words she spoke nearly every day when she said: "Mellody, you can be or do anything."
对我影响最大的是她几乎每天都对我说的那句话:“麦勒迪,你可以做任何事,成为任何人。”
And it was because of those words that I would love school more than anything.
正是因为这句话,我对学校的热爱甚于其他任何事物。
I wake up at the crack of dawn; I still do, to study.
天刚亮我就起床学习,到现在也是这如此。
And it was because of those words that I dreamed the biggest dreams.
就是因为她的这句话,我才有了最大的梦想。
And I hope you have your family's support as you pursue your passions and dream your own dreams.
在你们追随激情、追逐梦想时,我希望你们能得到家人的支持。

麦勒迪·霍布森2015南加利福尼亚大学毕业演讲

You might need bravery also to push past some of the stereotypes that come with our culture and where we live.

你们可能还需要勇气来打破我们文化和生活中的条条框框。
When I was a little girl taking public transportation to school,
我小时候坐公交去上学时,
I can bet not too many people were sitting on the bus saying,
我敢说没有多少人会坐在公交车上说:
"There goes the future president of an investment management firm with nearly eleven billion dollars in assets under management."
“那就是将管理近110亿美元资产的投资管理公司的总裁。”
They might have thought that if they had spent five minutes talking to me,
他们可能想过花上五分钟跟我说说话,
but I don't think they had those ideas and their expectations didn't run that high from afar.
但我不认为他们有过这些想法,他们的期望没有那么高。
So, I hope we can be better at judging people not on their assumptions and appearances,
所以,我希望我们可以更好地评价别人,不是根据他们的言论和外表,
but on their achievements and on their actions.
而是根据他们的成就和行动。
And here's how we can do that:
我们可以这样做:
Just how I told you that you can be or do anything, I want you to believe that that's true of anyone and everyone.
就像我说过的,你可以做任何事,成为任何人,我想让你们相信,这句话对任何人、对所有人都适用。
