Famous Left Handed - List of Famous Left Handed
Did you know that August 13 is the designated International Left-handers Day? Right-handed people might think that it’s cool being left-handed, but lefties know the real challenges of being different from what is the norm! With left-handers constituting just seven to ten percent of the world's population, they surely have a tough time in the predominantly right-handed world. But since lefties are perceived to be more creative, they are mostly able to face the challenges and carve a niche for themselves in their chosen career paths. It is hardly surprising that the left-handed Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci became the epitome of the Renaissance humanist ideal and is widely considered one of the greatest painters of all time. Another genius of the contemporary times, Bill Gates, is also a leftie. Left-handers have made a mark for themselves in United States politics as well—several US presidents including George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama are lefties. Read on for more information about the life and works of famous left-handed people.
