In honor of graduation season, CNBC Make It is rolling out the speeches and pieces of advice that America's leaders are most excited to share with the Class of 2017, using the hashtag #MakeItNewGrads.
You're about to leave school and your life is YOURS. Truthfully. It's not your parents' life. It's not your friends' life. It's not your school's life.

We're a self-absorbed, selfie-world of people. We worry about what other people, who are NOT thinking of us, think of us. That's a funny thought, right?
