Barack Hussein Obama II or simply Barack Obama, was born on August 4, 1961 under the sign of Leo. He was the son of Barack Obama, Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham. His parents had decided a divorce in 1964 when Obama Sr. got a scholarship in Harvard University. Obama’s father died in a car accident in 1982. Her mother then married an Indonesian student named Lolo Soetero who was a going in a college in Hawaii. Lolo, together with Barack II and Dunham, went back to Indonesia when all Indonesian students studying abroad were recalled by a military leader in Soetero’s home country. At the age of six, Obama started attending the local schools of Jakarta namely Besuki Public School and St. Francis of Assisi School. It was in 1971 when he returned to his maternal grandparents in Honolulu, Hawaii. Then, he pursued college education and has become a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School. He is now one of the most powerful people in the world for being the 44th United States of America’s president. Indeed, people who are under the Leo sign are those who possess leadership skills. They have a charismatic personality that has won the feelings of others to believe in him.
Obama was working as a summer associate at the Chicago law firm of Sidley Austin when he met Michelle Robinson in June 1989. Michelle was assigned to be Obama’s adviser in the firm that made them to be together in social gatherings; but when he would offer requests for a date, she usually declined them. It was already in the later part of that summer that Michelle agreed to go out with him. They were then engaged in 1991 and they were married on October 3, 1992. It was really in the characteristics of the Lions to be persistent and to be confident. They do not give up and they really push through in achieving what they want.
The couple had two lovely daughters. They are named Malia Ann who was born on July 4, 1998 and Natasha who was born on June 10, 2001. They used to study in University of Chicago Laboratory Schools; but when they already moved to Washington, D.C., they attended Sidwell Friends School. Despite the busy schedule of the Obama as a president, he never compromised the education of his daughter. Truly, the lion, as a husband, provides well for his family, especially to his children.
