Politician. Poet. Prime Minister? Some have labelled Benedikt Ríkardsson an unorthodox radical; he calls himself an honest citizen of Iceland. Who better to be the voice of this great nation? Benedikt is not interested in power—he wants to listen to the people, change the country, and make it better. Radical or righteous? One thing is for sure, he will be a leader unlike any we’ve ever seen before.
