Jean reached out to fans directly about protecting himself after graduation and offered some tips to help young people feel the same way: “What I was put together during these times, I promised to slow it down. From then on it became my habit to take some time for myself.
Suga spoke of feeling insecure and alone as she fell while running, getting up and realizing she was all alone.
RM concluded, “I hope our stories reach you today. Some say we’ve achieved a lot, but we’re no different than others in their 20s.
“We can only see each other through the camera, but I know your future will turn into something bigger.”
The team then tossed the graduation caps into the air and shouted, “Congratulations, Class 2020!”
