WRITE YOUR SPEECH AS IF YOU WERE ADDRESSING HARVARD ALUMNI IN A PUBLIC SPEAKING EVENT. APPEAL TO THE THEMES OF FRIENDSHIP, MASS MEDIA, MONEY, AMBITION AND COOLNESS. YOU HAVE TO NARROW DOWN THE TOPIC (Headline, subtopics, more specific ideas). YOU SHOULD SOUND CONVINCING ENOUGH SO THAT THEY BELIEVE IN YOUR WORDS OR GET THE FEELING THAT YOU ARE RIGHT IN WHAT YOU ARE SAYING.

At least have them think and reflect about your claim!
