Who Am I?

Take A Guess


Let's play a game

A guessing game

It's called 'Who Am I?'


Here's how it works:


There are 10 mystery people

You will be given 4 clues about each person

And based off of those clues alone

You will be asked to guess who each person is


After you've made all your guesses

You will be given the 4 clues about each person again

Except this time

The mystery person will be revealed so you can check if your guess was correct


To win

All you have to do

Is correctly guess at least one of the mystery people


Makes sense?

Good!


The game is simple

But winning is hard


Ready?

How'd you do?

Did you win?

Tough guesses, right?


Well

Win or lose

Did you notice anything special about these people?

Did you notice some things that they all have in common?


Like

They're all Americans who have accomplished great things


Or whether it be art, thought, business, science, or entertainment

They all have contributed to the American aggregate


Or that they're individuals

Hard working

Ambitious individuals


Or that no matter their background

And no matter how smooth or rough their paths may have been

Their journeys all took them to the same place


Success
