"Nelson Mandela was an icon of the global community. He epitomized leadership, humanitarianism and activism. Since first learning of Mandela as a young man, I deeply admired his courage and revolutionary vision to end racism and inequality through racial reconciliation. In many ways, Mandela inspired my life and career. Unequivocally, there will never be another quite like Nelson Mandela.”
