Barack Obama

by Mariam Diallo from Bamako in Mali

Barack Hussein Obama was born on August 4, 1961, in Honolulu. He was the United States' 44th president from January 20, 2009 to 2017. He is someone considered as heroic like Superman or Captain America because one of his greatest actions was to end the Iraq War. He stopped this war, which lasted eight years and killed thousands of lives. He save millions of people's lives: military, civil and children. He also did the same thing with war of 13 years in Afghanistan. More than saving lives, Barack Obama has a foundation for the new generation: connect people, share culture, but also for the education. The role of a hero is not only to save people but also care for them and their future. He is my hero, but also the hero of these people he saved and cared about.
