Obama got his graduation degree from Columbia University and performed his duties as a community organizer in Chicago. He also played President of Harvard Law Review, where he holds the record to be the first black person to reach that post.

Obama had a promise in his mind with his nation that he will help them to find out the right place for them in society. So, he never compromised on his studies. To fulfill his promise, he got the P.H.D. Degree from Harvard in economics.


After the completion of his degree, he went to Kenya. Obama never saw his father in his life, so he sketched him in his mind from the words by his mother and grandmother that how his father might have looked. 

His mother remarried to a man named Lolo Soetoro when Obama was six years old, and they shifted to Jakarta. Soon, he retired to Hawaii as he thought that there are more job opportunities than in Jakarta. Besides this, he also wanted to take care of his grandmother. 

Obama had faced many hardships in life. When he was enrolled in school, he was the one black person among only six black students. But this book shows that he had never given up.
