We asked 78 fifth-grade students if they would rather be a famous athlete or a U.S. president. Here are our results:

Famous athlete: 55

President: 23

Both jobs have pressure, but the pressure of being a great and famous athlete is what kids in our school would rather have. One reason why some students chose to be an athlete was that they can do what they love to do and get paid. Another reason was that they like to win trophies, get famous and get rich.

Some reasons why students chose to be a U.S. president were so they can have power and make a lot of laws and make changes in the world that help people.
