It’s not as if we need a reason to celebrate FLOTUS Michelle Obama (fyi, she’s the only first lady I acknowledge) because, I mean, she’s Michelle.Obama.
She’s the cinnamon queen we’ve been waiting to bow down to foreva. No offense Bey.
Her “when they go low, we go high” mantra was way more effective than that make America great ish.
Aaanndd it was THE perfect cautionary sign for people (like me) heading towards petty town. It was used more like a speed bump, really.
Anyway, what to get the woman that has everything. The hell if I know that’s Barack’s problem. What I’m going to give you is what we’ve been craving for months: more Michelle.
To celebrate Michelle Obama’s 54th birthday we’re highlighting her five most lit moments as first lady.
Number 1 is Michelle’s truth bombs. This First Lady always kept it 💯 Especially about our nation’s history. No fake news here.
Number 2 is Michelle’s emphasis on education. Like a cool aunt you don’t mind listening to on career day, Michelle would traverse across the country to the most millennial-heavy events to press the point of getting a higher education.
Number 3 is her unconventionality. What other first lady has spit a verse about healthy eating? I’ll wait.
Number four is helping Black women, or women in general, realize their self worth and how to make themselves a priority.
Number five is Michelle’s give back game. It’s epic. There wasn’t a school she didn’t visit or a soup kitchen line she didn’t serve a meal.
Happy Birthday, Michelle. Our wish is for you to continue to be great.
