Former President Obama took to Twitter on Tuesday to share his New Year's message, saying "we've got a lot of work to do."

“In 2018 people stepped up and showed up like never before,” Obama said on Twitter.


“Keep it up in 2019,” he continued. “We’ve got a lot of work to do, and I’ll be right there with you. Happy New Year, everybody!”

Over the weekend, the former president also shared a few stories about some of the young leaders he said inspired him in 2018.

Obama ended his weekend series of tweets with the hope that his followers would also find inspiration in the stories he shared.

“I hope you find inspiration in the stories of Dejah, Moussa, Sandor, Hong and Jonny. Their journeys began with a decision to build the better future they wanted to see. The same is true for you,” he said. 

“What matters isn’t the size of the step you take; what matters is that you take it,” he added.
