Becoming

Michelle Obama

Overview

Michelle Obama hasn't always been as successful and well-known as she is today. Long before she was a lawyer, working mom, and First Lady, she was Michelle Robinson.

Growing up in the Chicago south side, Michelle's loves included learning, jazz music, and Stevie Wonder. In a quickly decaying neighborhood and school situation, Michelle's mother helped her excel. Her hard work would later lead to her studying at prestigious universities and developing a desire to help people.

These are just some of the life lessons you'll learn from Michelle Obama in her book Becoming. Obama provides a rare first-person look at her life during the family's time at the White House, and how hard work made her successful long before.

Favorite Quote

"Now I think it's one of the most useless questions an adult can ask a child - what do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that's the end."
