After being knighted as one of Time‘s 100 Influential People, our first lady Michelle Obama is annotated as a cover girl and given an examination under The Meaning of Michelle story. Here are snippets from the interviews:
On Michelle Obama’s style: You’ve got to make choices that make sense for you … because there’s always going to be somebody who’ll think you should do something differently. So you might as well start with what you like, and what you care about, what your passions are, what makes sense. That’s my message to women, if anything, over the course of this, is, find your space. Find your spot. Wear what you love. Choose the careers that may have meaning to you, because there’s always somebody who will say, I wouldn’t have worn that color, or why didn’t you work at that job.”
On advices she received from former first ladies: The most unexpected and uniform advice that I got was, Go to Camp David, early and often. It’s one place you can go where you feel some level of freedom and an ability to breathe.
On being a role model: There are thousands of Michelle and Barack Obamas all over this nation.
