Michelle is married to the 44th U.S. President, Barack Obama, and was the first African-American First Lady. Raised on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois, Obama is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School. In her early legal career, she worked at the law firm Sidley Austin, where she met Barack Obama. She subsequently worked in non-profits and as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago and the Vice President for Community and External Affairs of the University of Chicago Medical Center. Michelle married Barack in 1992 and they have two daughters. I have enjoyed the role modeling and lead by example of the Obama’s. They were fair, kind, and intelligent. They were wonderful listeners and grew into leaders. When you follow the Golden rule and treat others as you would be treated. The children are our future is a real truth, I have four young adults going out into the world, they have dreams and aspirations. I have come from the immigrants like most Americans, love our right to free speech and practice whatever religion you want. I think we can do better for the planet and keeping the peace in the world. As a woman and mother, I love Michelle’s no-nonsense view of life, our job is to be a parent, not a friend.
The former first lady’s long-awaited new memoir recounts with insight, candor, and wit her family’s trajectory from the Jim Crow South to Chicago’s South Side and her own improbable journey from there to the White House.
It was with the weight of this history in her ancestry that Michelle Obama walked onto the world stage as the first black woman to become the first lady when her husband, Barack Obama, was sworn in as president in January 2009. The book was almost as closely guarded as the nuclear codes, and, as soon as the embargo was lifted, journalists tore into it for newsworthy bombshells of score-settling palace intrigue.
