Michelle Obama

First Lady Michelle Obama has impacted the world and won America’s hearts since the Presidential inauguration in 2008. As the first African American First Lady, she established new standards for the Black Family and was very adamant in asserting her initial priority, which is being a mother to her daughters, Malia and Sasha, while advocating for working women who balance careers and family. She showed what it means to be a woman balancing family and career life.
