In the end, Alice Bah Kuhnke wished the students courage for their future and gave a promise.

"It is necessary to have talent and you are talented with something very special - you are artists. To me that is the most beautiful thing one can be and it is what our society is most in need of. I hope you can fill yourselves with courage - the courage to dare. The courage to continue. And then I'll do what I can to create the conditions for you to blossom in your courage and your artistry.
