  1. Bobby says:

    The entire event was hilarious and encouraging. It was so strange to see people cheering the arrival of a president for a country different than their own. But at the same time, people expressed hope and confidence in their own future.

    For kids in Kenya, they’re all thinking, “My child could be the next president of America!” I’m looking forward to watching the way this vision of potential shapes education, healthcare, and solidarity within communities.
