Believe in Africa

"Sobel Ngom from Senegal has a wonderful quote. He has a wonderful quote. He said, 'Here, I have met Africa, the [Africa] I have always believed in. She’s beautiful. She’s young. She’s full of talent and motivation and ambition.' And that’s a good description," President Obama said in his closing remarks. "I want to thank you for inspiring us with your talent and your motivation and your ambition. You’ve got great aspirations for your countries and your continent. And as you build that brighter future that you imagine, I want to make sure that the United States of America is going to be your friend and partner every step of the way."
