Barack Hussein Obama II becomes the first African American to serve as President of the United States.

He was born in Hawaii to a white American and a Kenyan. However, his parents divorced early. Barack Obama has a total of six half-brothers and two half-sisters. His mother has a PhD in anthropology. After her marriage to an Indonesian, she moved to Jakarta with her son. After three years in Indonesia, Barack Obama was sent back to his grandparents in Hawaii, where he graduated from the renowned "Punahou School" with top marks. Since he played on the basketball team, he could even imagine a career as a professional player.

But things turned out differently: Barack Obama studied political science at Columbia University. After a year at a business consulting firm in New York, Barack Obama worked for a non-profit organization in Chicago. He then studied law at the "Harvard Law School", where he met his future wife Michelle. Obama graduated with the top grade "magna cum laude". Since Michelle finished her studies before him, Barack Obama worked intermittently as her intern in a law firm. The two married in 1992 and had two daughters in the following years.

Before starting his political career, he worked for a law firm specializing in civil rights and even taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago. In 1996, Barack Obama was first elected as a representative to the Illinois Senate. There he implemented many important legislative changes such as stricter gun controls. As a candidate for the Democratic Party in 2004, the politician won 52 percent of the vote and became the figurehead of his party. In 2008 Barack Obama was elected 44th President of the United States of America. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for just one year. The Democratic President is also popular with many celebrities. In the 2012 presidential election, he was re-elected for another four years.

After his presidency, Obama and his wife signed a contract with the streaming service Netflix in 2018 and founded the production company Higher Ground Productions.
