Barack Obama

As the president of the United States of America, Barack Obama is one of the most influential men in the world. During his historic run for the highest office in the land, the former senator shared the story of his humble beginnings frequently on the campaign trail. His parents split up when he was very young and his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, who was on public assistance, struggled to take care of her family. Obama credits his mother’s resilience and determination for inspiring him to dream big and believe in himself.
