John Fitzgerald Kennedy as a young boy.

According to his mother, Jack Kennedy was the “problem child”, forgetful and “invariably late” for meals. Sloppy at home & lazy at school, Jack overcame his problems with spelling & grammar to win the 1957 Pulitzer Prize with his “Profiles in Courage” and the presidential election 3 years later.
