Michelle Obama – Black History Month

by | Feb 14, 2020

Michelle Obama was previously the First Lady of the United States as the wife of President Barack Obama. She attended Harvard Law School in 1988, and in 1993 she became an Executive Director for the Chicago office of Public Allies. This is a non-profit organisation which gives disadvantaged young adults leadership training skills, aimed at developing careers in the public sector. As First Lady, she was praised for her passionate and moving speeches in support of a number of causes, particularly focusing on the support of military families and the rights of working women with children, and the importance of education. Throughout Barack’s Presidency, Michelle volunteered at homeless shelters throughout Washington D.C. and was an advocate of supporting every member of the community. In 2012, she launched a campaign aimed at fighting childhood obesity called “Let’s Move”, alongside the US Olympic and Paralympic team. In recent years, she has been vocal about protecting women from sexual harassment, and stated that we must teach our daughters that it is okay to use their voices and speak out against violence and harassment.
