In her words, “I know about his legacy and the impact it had not only on South Africa but the entire world. And it lives on, no matter how long it’s been since he’s passed, what he did lives on. I’m honored to be the honorary chair of Global and particularly to be honoring the Nelson Mandela foundation. It’s wonderful to be able to continue his work.”
