Sandra Bullock has done a lot for Warren Easton High School in New Orleans. You know, the one she adopted after Hurricane Katrina?
Well, it was that one that she made a surprise appearance to last week to deliver a commencement speech to the 2014 class.
The Oscar winner snuck onto stage to offer her inspirational words to the Charter school’s college-bound group.
She gave a list of things she wishes people had advised her with when she was younger.
“Raise the bar higher,” Bullock said. “I only remember the moments where I tried beyond what I thought I could do, and I do not remember the failures because I didn’t. Nothing is a failure, it’s just not supposed to work out that way, because something better is supposed to come along.”
