I’ve been here in the Pearl of Africa for over two years and I can tell you, without a doubt, that the young people I’ve met give me hope for the future of Uganda. In you, I see passion. In you, I see drive. In you, I see dynamism and innovation and a desire to shape a positive and constructive future for your nation.

Tonight, through fashion, we will see that dynamism and innovation at work. In a few minutes, you will see creations by remarkable young Ugandan designers, modeled for you by Americans that work in our embassy but who secretly, I think, long for their turn on the catwalk.
