Aissatou Alima Thiam, Senegal
"You have to try to live your dreams.
If you are a head of state, it's because you think you can resolve the problems of your country.
But make sure that you involve the whole nation - the youth, the cadres, ordinary folk, students - everyone has a stake. True democracy.
You are almost like a regulator. Listen to everyone. Be fair, be flexible, be responsible."
