“All of this to say you and in particular the young leaders here, you have a role to play and together we have a role to play. So then, let us dream with ambition and lead with conviction.

“I am optimistic about the future of the world because of you, the woman who will shatter every glass ceiling, the entrepreneur who will identify the next digital breakthrough, the activist to fight for the dignity of every human being, student and scientist, athletes and artists, farmers and fishers and the young innovators who will solve problems that we haven’t yet identified with solutions. We can’t even yet imagine,” she added.

The US vice president’s visit to Ghana was part of a one- week tour of three African countries (including Tanzania and Zambia). The Vice President said she seeks to reinforce the ties between the United States and the continent.

She is travelling in company of her husband, Douglas Emhoff, and other top State officials.
