Comments: 4  | Leave A Comment

When her husband ran for president in 2007, Michelle Obama dedicated more time to his career and motherhood. As the political road led to Washington D.C., the family made history as the first black family to occupy the White House.

Michelle Obama’s proactive campaign as the first lady has been focused on children’s health and obesity issues. On February 9, 2010 she launched the “Let’s Move” campaign, garnering a focus on exercise and healthy eating in schools across the country. She continues her work to improve school lunches and curriculums in her husband’s second term as the President of the United States.

As a fashion icon, the first lady set a new standard for designers across the world. Many look toward her fashions to highlight newest trends in clothing. In May of 2006, Michelle Obama was featured in Essence magazine as one of “25 of the World’s Most Inspiring Women.”  In 2007, she was number 58 on “The Harvard 100.” The first lady has also made the Vanity Fair best-dressed list two years in a row, and on People magazine’s 2008 best-dressed list.

Most importantly, Michelle Obama has been referred to as her husband’s better half, sharing ‘fist bumps’ and public affection on national and international broadcasts.
