There is something about him that radiates his message more than his speeches. He is not the first, and will not be the last politician that promises hope, change and better future. Yet his personality, radiance and background echoes that message more than any other would-be great men. Each generation has got their own, my grandfather had Mahatma Gandhi, my father had JFK and MLK. Now we have him.
As a Black African, studying in the UK, there is something about him that gets me excited. His core message – audacity of hope (this video). The courage to hope that my children can aim to be whatever they aspire to be in this nation. If, and when he becomes the president of the United States of America, he would have demonstrated to the world what hope is really like. That the grandchild of an illiterate village chef can be the most powerful man in the world. Yes he can.
