"I feel as though his term as president has been a true inspiration to all young African-Americans to not only dream bigger but also to get involved and do what you can, small steps from just voting, going out to work on his campaign, getting involved in understanding more about what the issues are in our country and communities. His administration has been an encouragement to young Black men and women to dream bigger and know that anything is possible and that it starts with small steps."
