MIAMI, FL. – Robert Zarco, founding partner of Zarco Einhorn Salkowski & Brito, P.A., delivered a highly animated motivational commencement speech at the Florida International University (FIU) South Campus graduation on Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2015. There were more than 6,000 people in attendance.

Zarco enlightened students with advice for their future. He told the graduates, “you are sitting on your launching pad into an exciting, unrestricted yet unpredictable and challenging future where today’s plans are not likely to be tomorrow’s reality.”  He continued by expressing that the graduates are being recognized for their past accomplishments and this graduation marks the beginning of a new and multi-dimensional world where no matter how much one plans, life takes its own unpredictable course. He remarked that in order to overcome this, “individuals must possess and exercise their own power in order to achieve a level of success in life, as defined by each graduate’s own priorities which will make them happy and fulfilled.”

Zarco joins many other distinguished FIU commencement speakers such as President George H.W. Bush and Florida Senator Bill Nelson.
