He portrayed leadership skills in the university by serving as the president of the Harvard Law Review; he also worked as a community organizer in Chicago before graduating with a law degree. He worked as a civil rights attorney after his graduation and at the same time taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004.

In an interview in 2006, he explained the miscellany of his extensive family: “It’s like a little mini-United Nations”, he said. “I’ve got relatives who look like Bernie Mac, and I’ve got relatives who look like Margaret Thatcher.” Obama has a half-sister who was raised together with him (Maya Soetoro-Ng, is the daughter of his mother and her Indonesian second husband) and he has seven other half-siblings from his Kenyan father’s family – six of them living.
Obama struggled to stop smoking severely; sometimes he had to use nicotine replacement therapy in effort to avoid smoking. Michelle Obama revealed in early 2010, that he had fully stopped smoking.
