Now, that Barrack Obama is president elect, there have been many talks to how Michelle Obama will be as our next First Lady. She is an Ivy-league educated, corporate lawyer who is also a mother of two. She has also been known to amaze many with her fashion style. She’s seems to posses characteristics of many First Lady’s combined; the Jackie Kennedy-like style, Hillary Clinton’s professional background, and her family-first attitude like Laura Bush.

She has said, “her most important job will still be to mother her young daughters. She jokes, she’ll be “Mom-In-Chief” but also continue to advise her husband on important matters. “

In an interview with Katie Couric she said, “I care very deeply about national service. I’ve worked for an academic medical center, I know the challenges in healthcare. I am a mother, and a professional, and a wife, and I know the struggles of balancing work, life, and family.”

With that said, I have high hopes for Michelle Obama. She’s not only intelligent, classy, and compassionate. But she has held an administrator position, and still had time for her family. I think she is going to be a great example for many women and girls.

When women thrive, all of society benefits, and succeeding generations are given a better start in life.
