"I think his presidency has encouraged not only myself but my younger cousins and god-siblings to think and dream bigger because there's a person who looks like them in the White House, which basically means they can do anything. He rules the free world almost and they've never seen that. Seeing Michelle Obama and the president makes me think maybe I can do something that great."
