Hello, my name is Theodore Roosevelt. I was born on October 27, 1858. I was born and raised in New York City. I was 61 years old when I died in the year 1919.
One of the people who influenced me the most during my life was my father. When I was growing up I was a weak child and had asthma.
I achieved many things even before I became president. I wrote 12 books, served as a New York state asemblyman for 3 terms, was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy, was colonel of the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War, was elected Governor of New York, and was later elected Vice president for McKinley.
In 1909 I became the 26th president of the US when President McKinley was shot. During my presidency I accomplished many things.
I was a strong conservationist, and during my presidency I created 150 national forests, 5 national parks, and 18 national monuments. I wanted these beautiful lands to be preserved so future generations could see them.
I also became famous for my foreign policy during my presidency. It was called "Big Stick Diplomacy"
The policy was based on the saying "Talk softly and carry a big stick" and this is how I dealt with foreign countries.
My father encouraged me to exercise and get healthy. It worked! I grew up and became strong, healthy, and full of energy!
I helped secure a treaty with Panama to build the Panama Canal, wrote 12 more books, was reelected president, and after mediating the Russo-Japanese War was the first AMerican to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Once I even refused to shoot an old bear because I wanted him to live, and that was how the "Teddy Bear" got its name.
Many people say I will be remembered for my energy, enthusiasm, determination, and sense of adventure. I hope I will also be remembered as a conservationist as long as our national parks and national forests are preserved for generations to come!
