MICHELLE OBAMA

With not many more days of BLACK HISTORY MONTH remaining, I had to recognize a woman who epitomizes strength. There have been many (and I do mean many) insults hurled her way because of the color of her skin. She has managed to still stand with the grace and style that so many couldn’t muster even on their best days. She is the 1st black First Lady of the United States of America. There is much more to her than just the title of First Lady of the United States of America.
Michelle Obama was born on January 17, 1964 in Chicago, Illinois. She attended Princeton University, graduating cum laude in 1985, and went on to earn a law degree from Harvard Law School in 1988. Following law school, she worked at a Chicago law firm, where she met her husband, President Barack Obama. The couple married on October 3, 1992. As first lady, she has focused her attention on current social issues.
