I'm so proud of these tremendous young men from @WayneState here in Detroit. They're working hard to build their community and leave an even stronger city to the generations coming up behind them. Thanks to @keeganmic and my big brother Craig for joining in on the conversation. #IAmBecoming

I’m having so much fun with all of you on my #IAmBecoming tour that I decided to do one final round of events to see folks in some cities we missed! These conversations have been so meaningful for me, and I hope they’ve been meaningful for you all, too. Can’t wait to see even more of you in 2019!

In 2009, I met so many promising, beautiful, and brilliant girls at Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in London. These were girls who didn’t come from much—immigrants and minorities, many of them wearing headscarves—but they had all the potential in the world. In them, I saw myself as I’d once been. It was a visit that filled me with hope and shaped who I became as First Lady. Today, I returned there to meet the newest group of girls from EGA and another school I’d visited, Mulberry School for Girls—and I walked away just as hopeful as I was almost a decade ago. To all you inspiring young ladies, stay focused and keep believing in yourselves. Just remember that wherever you come from and wherever you go, you belong. #IAmBecoming

As a public servant, father, and grandfather, President George H.W. Bush was an extraordinary example for us all. His spirit of service and decency will be missed by many, including our family. I hope his memory will be a guiding light for our country and those around the world.

98 million adolescent girls around the world aren't in school. Laxmi was one of them—until she enrolled in the Prerna Girls School. That’s when her life changed. Today, Laxmi and others from the @GlobalGirlsAlliance are sharing their stories at the #ObamaSummit. The world is better off because of stories like theirs.

We’re finally here! I’m so excited to share my memoir with all of you today! As I’ve reflected on my journey, I’ve learned so much about where I came from, about the people and moments that shaped me, about all of the struggles and the growth along the way. But mostly, I learned to embrace the fullness of my story—every bit of it. As I write in the preface, “Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.” I hope this book is meaningful to you, even in the smallest of ways. I hope you find something in it that resonates with your life. Most of all, I hope that each of you can embrace the beauty of who you are, and I wish you all the best in your own process of becoming. Go to becomingmichelleobama.com and share your own #IAmBecoming story with me.

Right now, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. I see myself in these girls. I see my daughters in these girls. I know a lot of you see yourselves and your families in them, too. That’s why today on the International #DayoftheGirl, the @ObamaFoundation is launching the @GlobalGirlsAlliance—a program to empower adolescent girls around the world through education. We believe that change happens from the ground up, so we’re working to support grassroots leaders and to spur action from people like you, all around the world. We can accomplish more together than we can on our own, so I hope you’ll join our alliance—because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls. #GlobalGirlsAlliance

Thanks to every single one of you — from Wyoming to Arizona to Tennessee — who joined the @WhenWeAllVote Week of Action, getting our families, friends, and neighbors registered and ready to vote on November 6th. I believe we need to help every single American feel like voting is a part of who they are, in this election and every election. It should feel like we’re speaking up for ourselves and our families and what we believe in. In these last few weeks before Election Day, let’s all get out there and make sure that everyone we know is voting on behalf of something that feels important to them —a candidate, an issue, a cause. Send them towhenweallvote.org or text WEALLVOTE to 97779 to get started. That’s how we can all do our part. Let’s get to work!

There's a lot at stake this November. This election is our chance to hold our leaders accountable on everything from our kids' education to the safety of our communities. If we stay home, critical issues that affect all of us will be ignored. But When We All Vote, we have the chance to elect those who share our values and listen to our voices. On National Voter Registration Day, register to vote, make sure your family and friends register too, and get to the polls on Nov. 6. Text WeAllVote to 97779 or head to whenweallvote.org to get started.

Thank you, Las Vegas! It was so much fun to be with you to help kick off @WhenWeAllVote’s Week of Action. Now let’s get working to help everyone we know get registered and ready to vote. I know that there are a lot of folks who think that voting isn’t relevant to their lives. Or they think that it won’t make a difference. Or they think the whole system is rigged. A lot of folks are just trying to get their kids to day care, and get things done at work, and get enough sleep every night. Trust me, I get it. I get being busy, and I definitely get feeling frustrated. But I also know that those frustrations will only get worse if we don’t do something to make it better—and our best chance to do that is by voting and electing leaders who will listen to us, leaders who will take on the issues we care about. 
If we’re going to make sure all of our voices are heard this November, we’ve got to make sure everyone is registered to vote. You can register to vote right now—just text WeAllVote to 97779 or visit WhenWeAllVote.org to get started, and make sure all your friends and family do the same. That’s how we’ll show ourselves and each other that our votes do matter, not just in the election this fall, but in every election.

When I was younger, thinking about going to college sometimes gave me a pit in my stomach. I came from a working-class family on the South Side of Chicago. I was young, black, and female. Of course I doubted myself. But I never let those fears get the best of me, in large part because I learned to ask for help when I needed it. I found friends and mentors who helped me realize I belonged. And if I failed—which I did, a lot—I learned to pick myself up and keep going. That’s how I ended up with the education I needed to go on to become a lawyer, a nonprofit leader, a hospital executive, and First Lady of the United States. No matter what kind of life you want to build for yourself, you’ve already got the raw materials inside. But to make your dreams a reality, you’ve also got to continue your education after high school, whether that’s at a community college, a university, or a career & technical program. College is worth it. YOU are worth it. Never, ever doubt that for a second. #BetterMakeRoom @BetterMakeRoom @ReachHigher2020

JOIN ME ON MY BOOK TOUR! www.becomingmichelleobama.com #IAmBecoming I’m from the South Side of Chicago. I went to Princeton and Harvard. I’m a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a sister. I’ve been a lawyer, a nonprofit leader, a hospital executive, and First Lady of the United States. I like to call these my “stats” – the shorthand we all seem to default to whenever we tell our stories. Where are you from? What do you do? What school did you go to? As I’ve written my memoir, BECOMING, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about my story, mining it for the kinds of details I’d usually just brush off or even forget about—the narrow taillights of my father’s car, a talk with my mother on a drive home, the heat of my daughter’s forehead when she ran a fever. And in doing so, I’ve realized that those surface-level “stats” don’t really tell my story at all. This fall, I’d like to share that fuller story with all of you on my book tour. It’s the story of my humdrum plainness, my tiny victories, my lasting bruises, my ordinary hopes and worries. It’s the story of who I am, truly, and I’m proud of it—blemishes and all. Go to BecomingMichelleObama.com to find out where I’ll be and how to get tickets. #IAmBecoming I hope to see you somewhere along the way!

I learned the importance of voting from my father.  He had multiple sclerosis, and it was a struggle for him just to get out of bed and get dressed in the morning.  But on election day, no matter how sick he felt or how much pain he was in, he got himself to a polling place and cast his vote. 
For him, voting was a sacred responsibility because he knew it was the only way to make his voice heard and ensure his values were represented in the halls of power.  And that is especially true today in this upcoming election -- and every election.  So I hope you'll join me and the rest of the @WhenWeAllVote team during our Week of Action this September to get folks across this country fired up to vote this November.

The Voting Rights Act makes our democracy stronger, giving every American, from all walks of life, the right to vote. I think of all the folks who organized, who marched, who showed up to the polls knowing they could be intimidated, beaten, or turned away. They stood up time and again for their right to vote. I want us all to continue their legacy and ensure every eligible American casts their vote. That’s why I’m hitting the road with the rest of the @WhenWeAllVote team for the Week of Action this September. I’m counting on you to be a part of it.

I remember going to the polls with my father every single election. It didn’t matter whether it was raining, snowing, or if he was tired — he always showed up to the polls to cast his ballot. He taught me to never take my right to vote for granted, because he knew that it's the most powerful tool we have to shape the future of our communities and our country. That’s why I make sure to vote in every election, from school board to Senate. And I’m excited to team up with @WhenWeAllVote to encourage all eligible voters to make their voices heard in this election. And I hope you'll join us.

To the first-gen students I met today and those across the country, I want you to know how incredibly proud I am of you. I know it wasn’t easy to get to this point, and I know you might be nervous about starting your college journey. But as a first-gen college student myself, I can promise that your education will open doors you never could have imagined. During my time at Princeton, I met so many amazing people, was exposed to all kinds of new ideas and experiences, and learned a lot about who I am and what I wanted to do in the world. So when you face challenges or obstacles, don’t get discouraged — ask for help. Experiencing failure and learning from it is an important part of the college experience, and there are so many people in your corner who are rooting for you and want to see you succeed. I’m one of them! I believe in you, and I cannot wait to see what you will achieve. #BetterMakeRoom

Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own. #BECOMING

Home has always been where our family is...It hasn’t mattered whether we’re lounging on a couch in Chicago’s Hyde Park or, as we are here, in the White House. We did our best to make the White House a comfortable place where our girls could climb trees and host slumber parties, where we’d have dinner together as a family, and where we tried to live by the values our parents instilled in us.

You can’t tell it from this photo, but Barack woke up on our wedding day in October, 1992 with a nasty head cold. Somehow, by the time I met him at the altar, it had miraculously disappeared and we ended up dancing almost all night. Twenty five years later, we’re still having fun, while also doing the hard work to build our partnership and support each other as individuals. I can’t imagine going on this wild ride with anybody else.

This is me at Princeton in the early 1980s. I know that being a first-generation college student can be scary, because it was scary for me. I was black and from a working-class neighborhood in Chicago, while Princeton’s student body was generally white and well-to-do. I’d never stood out in a crowd or a classroom because of the color of my skin before. But I found close friends and a mentor who gave me the confidence to be myself. Going to college is hard work, but every day I meet people whose lives have been profoundly changed by education, just as mine was. My advice to students is to be brave and stay with it. Congratulations to the Class of 2018! #ReachHigher

Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing some photos and memories from my book, BECOMING. My father, Fraser, taught me to work hard, laugh often, and keep my word. My mother, Marian, showed me how to think for myself and to use my voice. Together, in our cramped apartment on the South Side of Chicago, my family helped me see the value in our story, in my story, and in the larger story of our country.

I know how hard all of you have worked to make your dreams of going to college come true. I was once in your shoes, and I know it isn’t easy. But I can tell you that from the South Side of Chicago to Princeton and Harvard and beyond, my education unlocked so many doors for me – and I know it will do the same for you. That’s why #CollegeSigningDay has become one of my favorite traditions. It’s a day when we can all come together to honor your passion and ambition and cheer you on as you get ready to take the next big step in life. I’m so proud of you, and I can’t wait to see everything you achieve!  #BetterMakeRoom (📷 credit: @chuckkennedydc)

On May 2, I can't wait to celebrate my 5th #CollegeSigningDay in Philly! It’s been amazing seeing this event grow into a nationwide movement where schools and communities celebrate students for committing to a higher education. #fbf @bettermakeroom

Thank you Debra, Valerie, and the entire BET family for hosting me tonight at Leading Women Defined.
