world leader. Do not select Barack Obama or an historical leader like Hitler. If you don't have a leader in mind, then select a country that interests you and learn about who the leader is. As
you research, categorize your findings into these basic categories to
start with: -Mini Biography

What are some main news events happening now in this country?-Import and Export Products:
What products do they import? What products do they export?
