Michelle Obama has undoubtedly emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America – the first African-American to serve in that role – she helped create a more inclusive White House. She also established herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives.
Now we’ll all get a chance to get behind-the-scenes insight into this inspirational woman through her memoir, Becoming. “Writing Becoming has been a deeply personal experience,” she said. “It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life. In this book, I talk about my roots and how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others. I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be. I can’t wait to share my story.”
The memoir is described as a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her – from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address.
She describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it – in her own words and on her own terms.
Personally I cannot wait to read this. How about you?
