Politician: Mitt Romney

Willard Mitt Romney was born in 1947 and started off as a businessman. He entered the political scene later and became the 70th Governor of Massachusetts and served between 2003 and 2007. He is also a strong contender for the republican candidate for the presidential elections in 2012.

Born in a family that was already involved in politics with his father being the Governor of Michigan, his early childhood was in the affluent suburbs of Bloomfield Hills as his father was the CEO of American Motors. When his father turned the company from the edge of bankruptcy to a profitable one, he became a national figure on television. Romney idealized his father in all that he did. 

The first time Romney got exposed to politics was when he was a sophomore while campaigning for his father to run for the Governor of Michigan. He worked as an intern in his office too. In 1966, Romney left the united Stated for 30 months to do traditional duty in France as a Mormon Missionary. 

On return he wanted to study business administration but his father thought that law was a better choice he therefore became a student of the Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration, a four-year program that was coordination between the Harvard Business School and the Harvard Law School. Mitt Romney has had parallel business and political careers ever since.
