Barrack Hussein Obama was born to America by Ann Dunham and Kenyan father, Barrack Obama Sr, who were college students at the University of Hawaii. His father later came back to Kenya to work as a government economist leaving the junior Obama and his mother in America. His mother later remarried an Indonesian oil manager and they moved to Jakarta when Barrack was six. In Indonesia he experienced real weight of poverty and he later moved back to Hawaii where he lived with his grandparents. His grandfather was furniture salesman while his grandmother was a banker. He managed to join Punahou School, the best preparatory school in Hawaii. His father used to write to him regularly but he managed to visit Barrack only once when he was ten.

Barrack Obama represent the real meaning of courage and determination. He lived a life accompanied by frustration, disappointment and misfortune but he never gave-up. He kept going ‘even if the road seemed bumpy’. He rose above racism and showed the world that white or black we all are equal. Obama is a real icon to the world; he is a mentor for many people in the USA.
