Writing BECOMING has been a deeply personal experience. It has allowed me, for the very first time, the space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of my life. In this book, I talk about my roots and how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others. I hope my journey inspires readers to find the courage to become whoever they aspire to be. I can't wait to share my story. Please visit the website in my bio for more information.
Why Is Michelle Obama So Memorable?
She has been considered as one of the great First Ladies America ever had and even if her husband, Barack Obama, is no longer the president, she is still making sure that she will continue to be a great influence to her fellow Americans.
The people have witnessed how memorable she is in such a great way. During her time as the First Lady, she had managed to make a change in a lot of different ways. Michelle launched an icon known as the MyPlate, which has been helping parents make healthy choices for their family and hundreds of organizations even partnered up with the USDA to be able to spread the importance of proper nutrition.
The First Lady was a fierce advocate of good health and proper nutrition
In 2011, she has worked with one of the biggest stores in the country, Wal-Mart, wherein they made a nutrition charter that would lower the cost of fruits, vegetables, and other nutritious foods. One of her final projects was the Let Girls Learn campaign which is a nationwide initiative to encourage young girls to stat in school by sharing inspirational stories as well as struggles and make young women understand that education is one of the most important things in life.
Launching Her New Memoir
Those are just some of the most memorable things that she has done in order to make a difference. This experience then inspired her to write a memory not just to be able to share her journey from just a normal wife and mother to becoming a First Lady of one of the most powerful countries in the world.
Her very first memoir is entitled ‘Becoming’ and it will be launched this coming November and it will be translated 24 different languages and will be published all over the world.

As a young girl, even in my wildest dreams, I never could have imagined this moment. Nobody in my family has ever had a portrait – there are no portraits of the Robinsons or the Shields from the South Side of Chicago. This is all a little bit overwhelming, especially when I think about all of the young people who will visit the National Portrait Gallery and see this, including so many young girls and young girls of color who don’t often see their images displayed in beautiful and iconic ways. I am so proud to help make that kind of history. But the fact is that none of this would be possible without the extraordinary artist and woman behind this portrait, @asherald. Thank you, Amy – it was a joy to work with you and get to know you.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the former First Lady said that writing this memoir allowed her to reflect on everything that has happened in her life for the past couple of years. She also mentioned how her experience empowered her and gave her strength. She has also shared what she learned over the past eight years living in the White House. Michelle explained how they have managed to call it a home even if they know it a mot exactly their house and that they wouldn’t live there forever. She said that they made it a home because they are a family and that is what makes a house a home.

Her memoir is yet to be released but she has already managed to snag a huge amount of money for it. A news broke out last year that both her and her husband, former U.S. President Barack Obama, signed a two-memoir book deal with Crown that is worth $60 million.
However, the Associated Press reported that they wouldn’t be keeping most of it since a significant portion of the earnings will go to the Obama Foundation. First Lady memoirs have always been best-sellers according to the Washington Post, in fact, Laura Bush’s Spoken From the Heart and Hillary Clinton’s Living History memoirs have both managed to earn millions so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Michelle’s memoir makes it into the New York Time’s best-selling list once it comes out later this year.
