Interesting Facts about Barack Obama.

Barack Hussein Obama, the current president of the United States is one of the most influential personalities in the world. I have collected some interesting facts about Barack Obama.

1. Facts about Barack Obama – Early and Teenage Life:

  • His dream was to play basketball as a teenager. He was known as “Barry O’ Bomber” at high school for his skill at basketball.
