1. Who is your "I am..." person? What made you interested in this person?
Answer: My "I am.." person is Benjamin Fraklin, the guy who discovered electricity! He was much more behind the discovery of electricity though. In fact, he was a respected author, printer, satirist, political theorist, politician, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. I chose him because i wanted to know what he was outside of his discovery of electricity, because for a lot of people, that's all they know about him.
