First Lady an Inspiration to Many

The forty-fourth President of the United States, Barack Obama, has overcome many obstacles en route to trailblazing his path to the presidency.  Upon his election, he became the first American of African-American descent to ever be selected as President.

As the old adage says, behind every great man, there is an equally impressive woman by his side.  In this case, Michelle Obama, who became the First Lady during the historic inauguration ceremony that took place on January 30, 2009, is that equally impressive woman who complements President Obama so well.

First Lady, Michelle Obama

A graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law, Michelle Obama was no slouch herself in the classroom.  Obama was well-qualified to promote her husband’s presidential campaign in 2008 and her efforts were instrumental in beating out John McCain to claim the presidency.

After President Obama declared his candidacy, Michelle scaled back her professional career (she was a board member of a large Wal-Mart food supplier) in order to promote her husband’s efforts.

Upon the election’s completion, Obama became an advocate as the First Lady as her full-time job.  Obama has fought for many causes, poverty awareness and healthy eating are among her most cherished efforts.

For her efforts, she has gained much recognition.  In 2010, Forbes Magazine named Obama the most powerful woman in the world.
