Who would you like to interview?

Barack Obama

An 11-year-old boy got an awesome start in journalism when he interviewed the President of America, Barack Obama.

Damon Weaver quizzed Mr Obama about education, and asked if every school could serve chips and mangoes every day for lunch.

So who would YOU like to interview? And what would you ask them?

Maybe you'd ask Simon Cowell for tips of making it big as a pop star?

Or perhaps you want to know how Jenson Button feels about being in pole position in a Grand Prix?

Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.
