My name is Nassem Al-Mehairi. I was born in the “Corn Belt” of Ohio, in the United States of America, in 1999.
Growing up in the heartland of America, my life can, in some ways, be compared to the very fabric of America itself. I hold viewpoints I have developed throughout my life, holding strong due to my heritage and the times. I am a moderate Democrat, and my life is dedicated to reducing poverty, growing democracy here and all over the world, and making sure that the American Dream is once again possible through capitalistic opportunity for all Americans.
I volunteered for President Obama & Senator Sherrod Brown’s reelection in 2012, accomplishing over 2,500 in-person door meetings and phone calls. I am now working to take on a larger role to elect Secretary Hillary Clinton to be our next President in 2016.
As I am working to become President of the United States, I have gained admiration for a set of leaders. My greatest political heroes are (in no order): President John F. Kennedy, President George Washington, President Barack Obama, Secretary Hillary Clinton, President Bill Clinton, First Lady Jackie Kennedy, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Benjamin Franklin, First Lady Abigail Adams, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, the Marquis de Lafayette (of Revolutionary fame), and Senator Bobby Kennedy.
I am a lover of books, and I have and continue to review the top books. Some of my favorite books are (in no order): A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, Dreams From My Father by Barack Obama, The Blofeld Trilogy by Ian Fleming, and A Most Wanted Man by John Le Carré. I love literary, historical, and espionage fiction along with biographies the most.
I’m a loyal fan of the Cleveland Cavs and the Cleveland Indians. I’ve stuck with Lebron through it all and we’ll get that Cleveland NBA title soon. (Update – 2016 : We broke the curse!)
The most interesting eras in history to study and write about are the American Revolution, the French Revolution, and the 1960’s/Vietnam War era. I plan to write plenty on these eras, starting now and continuing throughout my life.
I am a big music lover too, and I love the music of 2pac, Drake, Jhene Aiko, Beyoncé, Adele, and more.
