Maia Sandu at Kennedy School Class Day

The war in Ukraine loomed over the Class Day celebrations at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) Wednesday afternoon, with a keynote address delivered by Maia Sandu, M.C./M.P.A. ’10, president of the Republic of Moldova, a small nation that borders Ukraine to the southwest. Since Vladimir Putin’s invasion of its larger neighbor, experts have speculated that the country of four million people could also become a Russian target, and Sandu told The Economist earlier this month that this is Moldova’s most dangerous moment since gaining independence from the Soviet Union in 1992.

President Maia Sandu's Speech

It’s a big honor for me to address you at the end of this amazing Kennedy School experience and at the start of your next fascinating journey. Fourteen years ago, when I got my acceptance letter from the Kennedy School of Government, I was equally surprised and excited, but I would have never thought that one day I would be on this stage addressing the esteemed faculty and graduates of the Kennedy School. I have not planned for that. As I have not planned to become a politician or the president of my country. So, beware and be ready for your roller coaster journey to take you to totally unexpected places and destinations.
