With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. But in a special introduction to the book, Obama makes it clear that the new version doesn’t sugarcoat “hard truths. It came in the form of bad music, or at least amateur music, coming up through the floorboards of my bedroom—­the plink plink plink of students sitting downstairs at my great-­aunt Robbie’s piano, slowly and imperfectly learning their scales. Immer wieder betonte sie, dass das Wohl ihrer Kinder immer an erster Stelle steht und egal, wie kompliziert das Leben im Weißen Haus auch war, sie versuchte immer dafür zu sorgen, dass ihre Kinder Kinder sein können und deren Leben nicht von der Politik ihrer Eltern beherrscht werden. I have learned through my years of trying to find balance in my life that it is okay to flip priorities and care only for ourselves one in a while, to say sorry, folks, I'm doing this for me.

Michelle é uma figura muito carismática e, pelo menos esta versão para jovens leitores, lê-se tão bem que quase sentimos que estamos a ter uma conversa com a autora, tal a genuinidade e proximidade impressas nas páginas. She did give some insight into her feelings about Donald Trump - in particular about his comments around Barack's birthplace, and for this she has said she will never forgive him for putting her family at unnecessary extra risk. My dad went to work every day dressed in the blue uniform of a city laborer, but at night he showed us what it meant to love jazz and art. Whilst politics are mentioned, Michelle Obama herself takes no interest in that aspect of it and tells her story in such an inspiring, raw, mesmerising way.In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. My one critique - and this could just be because I read the edition adapted for young readers - was the pervasive optimistic tone.

As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U. Now adapted for younger readers, with new photographs and a new introduction from Michelle Obama herself, this memoir tells a very personal, and completely inspiring, story of how, through hard work and determination, the girl from the South Side of Chicago built an extraordinary life. Das Buch ist in 3 Teile aufgeteilt - ihrer Kindheit, dem Erwachsen werden und ihre Jahre als First Lady.The young couple went on to marry and have children, Michelle remained focused and balanced her work life and family life to always give the best of herself although her role as Mum would always be the most important. She's also a good storyteller - the book is anecdotal while still managing to progress a healthy moving timeline. I read Becoming earlier this year by myself, and I picked up this copy (adapted for young readers) a few months back. I hope that as you’re reading my story, you’ll also think about your own—because it’s the most beautiful gift you’ll ever have.
