Empowering, beautiful, confident and inspirational are a few words to describe Mrs Michelle Obama. An inspiration too many (including myself) and a style icon to many; Solange Knowles recently described her as her style icon. The first lady is currently firmly standing by her husband; Barack Obama in the hope that he gets re-elected. As the saying goes; behind every man is a strong woman, Michelle Obama is definitely that. At a time when TOWIE stars and reality show stars are highly idolised, it is refreshing to see (in my opinion) a true role model who actually deserves to be admired.

 

 

Michelle- the wife

 

 

Michelle – the mother

 

 

    

 

Michelle-the style icon

 

I recently came across this quote by Michelle Obama which I loved as soon as I read it, below is this quote along with five of my others favourite quotes:

“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.”

“Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond; that you do what you say you’re going to do. That you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them and even if you don’t agree with them.”

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own. “

“Although the circumstances of our lives may seem very disengaged, with me standing here as the First Lady of the United States of America and you just getting through school, I want you to know we have very much in common. For nothing in my life ever would have predicted that I would standing here as the first African-American First Lady. ”

“Whether you come from a council estate or a country estate, your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude. ”

“I come here tonight as a sister, blessed with a brother who is my mentor, my protector and my lifelong friend. And I come here as a wife who loves my husband and believes he will be an extraordinary president. “
