When I think of America, I think: America is the country of intelligence. It is a country with financial security. A country of inventions.
Americans should know about Benin: Benin is a country of intelligence, too. We are strivers. We don’t have oil, gold or other natural resources. But we work hard to have a good life. You have to be very intelligent to make that happen with so few natural resources.
