Synopsis

Michelle Obama The Making of a First Lady by Dawne Allette

I want you to know that we have very much in common. For nothing in my life would have predicted that I would be standing here as First Lady of the United States of America... When Michelle Obama spoke these words in a London school, the effect on the students was overwhelming. Her inspiring words, approachable nature and regal style make Michelle a much-loved public figure and a role model in her own right. A child of working class parents in Chicago, Michelle went on to become an Ivy League graduate, a lawyer, and an international icon as wife to President Barack Obama. Her life is a tale of extraordinary achievement in a changing society.
