Michelle Obama’s "Becoming" has been one of my favourite reads for 2019.
A global advocate and role model for girls’ education, Michelle Obama is fiercely inspiring.
Spanning Michelle’s humble upbringing on the south side of Chicago to her time as First Lady, the leader of the “East Wing” of the White House, "Becoming" has it all! .
I loved learning about her revelations of the juggle of performing her roles as a politicians wife, hands-on parent, loving partner and ambitious career woman. It felt like a privilege diving into the very private challenges the formidable couple faced, including Michelle’s reluctance to support the Presidential Campaign. In her eyes, Barack Obama was not for sharing!!
But overall it was fascinating to have a behind the scenes glimpse at Michelle’s incredible work and legacy.
Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” is accessible, honest, meaty, opinionated and uplifting all at the same time. It’s no surprise that it’s now the best selling memoir of all time.
A great holiday read!
