President Barack Obama has revealed his nomination for the new head of the World Bank in the person of Korean-born American academic called Jim Yong Kim, BBC said.
Dr Kim is currently president of Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, one of America's top-tier Ivy League Schools, where he was appointed in 2009.
For several years he served as the director of the department of HIV/Aids at the World Health Organization providing anti-retroviral medication to three million HIV/Aids patients in the developing world, an important role that seemed to have played a part in his nomination.
But aside from his achievements and education, earning a Harvard medical doctorate in 1991 and PhD in Anthropology in 1993, he also possessed an amazing talent in entertainment.
During an ‘idol’ competition at the college last year, Dr Kim surprised everyone when he emerged onstage wearing a studded white leather jacket and "robot" visor glasses, while rapping to the song ‘I've Had The Time of My Life’ from the film Dirty Dancing.
When he joined Darmouth he said he wanted "to be more effective at making the world a better place".
