Born into a family of modest means in Chicago, Michelle Obama was inspired to reach her full potential through the example set by her parents, particularly by her father's courageous battle with multiple sclerosis. After graduating from Chicago public schools, she earned admission to Princeton University and later Harvard Law School—nearly impossible achievements for earlier generations of African-African women. At the Chicago law firm of Sidley & Austin, she began her legal career and met her future husband, Barack Obama. Together, the two embarked upon a singular partnership that would take them from the South Side of Chicago to the White House. As a wife, mother, attorney, and now first lady, Michelle Obama has offered a powerful example of what hard work, dedication, and perseverance can achieve. In this all-new biography, readers will learn how Michelle Obama overcame obstacles to achieve success and how her story is influencing other young women today.
