Convocation Keynote to Students: Mistakes are Stepping Stones on Path to Greatness

With a bachelor’s from UC San Diego, a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, a loving family and a successful career in Silicon Valley with several esteemed technology and software companies, Ming knows what it takes to prosper and achieve goals that may seem unreachable. Her secret? Failure.
