Be sure to choose someone you truly find interesting, because this person will be your focus throughout the course. Choose a public person you like (a politician, movie star, musician, author, etc.), living or deceased. The only requirement is that there must be sufficient information available about this person’s life for you to adequately complete the assignment. Below is a short list of some interesting people whom you might want to consider: (you choose outside of list but let me know who you choose by week 2)
