Michelle Obama had achieved so many things and had become one of the most iconic women in our era. She had become the first African American to serve in the role of First Lady of the United States of America and helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history while establishing herself as the advocate for women empowerment and health and wellness around the world. She stood beside her husband as they survived some of the most harrowing experiences of their lives. All while raising two down-to-earth daughters despite the unforgiving media glare.
Her memoir is a work of introspection and reflection with inspiring storytelling. Michelle Obama chronicles her experiences—from her childhood in the South Side of Chicago to her first years as a mother, to her eight years spent in the White House. Becoming is a personal revelation of a woman with soul and substance who continues to defy expectation and to inspire us to do the same.
