Former President of United States of America, Bill Clinton, has tweeted that he wants to meet Tanitoluwa Adewumi, the 8-year-old Nigerian homeless refugee child who was recently crowned New York Chess Champion.
Clinton wrote on Twitter that: “Refugees enrich our nation and talent is universal, even if opportunity is not.” This story made me smile. Tanitoluwa, you exemplify a winning spirit – in chess and in life. And kudos to your hard-working parents. You all should stop by my office in Harlem; I’d love to meet you.”
