The healthcare of the fellow American people has been one of the most monumental topics in today’s day and age. With republicans, including our very own President Donald Trump, working on repealing one of the biggest accomplishments of former president Barack Obama, I thought it would be a great topic that I immersed into.

Hello, my name is Daoud…

Hello, my name is Daoud Esa. Currently studying accounting and hope to finish up my classes soon and hopefully start working. It might sound cliche but I love just chilling with others. When I’m not doing that I watch a bunch of Netflix shows and movies. I’m taking this class not only because its required but I genuinely love to know what makes countries like America or Russia such a superpower. How did America get to this point and why aren’t other countries just as powerful? Those are the questions that intrigue me the most and looking to find out the answers in this class.
