Presidential Qualities :: NOLA Kids Speak Up

Being the President of the United States is a BIG job. With the Presidential race splashed all over the media, inevitably most of our kids have seen or heard something from one of the candidates. But what do they think it takes to be the President? We asked NOLA kids from all walks of life just what qualities the next President of the United states should have, and they spoke up! Here’s what they had to say:
