United States President Barack Obama yesterday, arrived at the Assembly Hall of the University of the West Indies, Mona campus in Kingston, to loud screams and cheers from students and young leaders.

He arrived at approximately 2:46 pm.

He greeted the more than 350 young leaders gathered Jamaican style with: “Greetings massive, wah gwaan Jamaica?”

“Big up,” he said.

This delighted them even further.

“He is here, he is here,” one student from the educational institution was overheard shouting.

“I can’t believe I am actually looking at Barack Obama, if this is possible anything is possible,” another student said.

He is expected to launch the Youth Leaders of the Americas Initiative.
