When we think of famous figures like Bill Clinton, Vladimir Putin, or Margaret Thatcher, we usually imagine them as middle-aged people who are sitting in their offices, trying to shape the political map of the world. But we often forget that aside from their reputation and power, they’re ordinary people just like the rest of us. These influential politicians also pose for graduation photos, play sports on the weekends, and cry their eyes out in their childhood years.
