Becoming is the story of how Michelle Obama ended up excelling at school and meeting an up-and-coming lawyer named Barack Obama, who would become her partner in an incredible life. Realizing that she really wanted to help people more than be involved in the intricacies of contract law, Michelle left her job at a respected law firm to work in the world of nonprofits, community outreach and mentoring.<br />This civic-mindedness is what she brought with her into the White House, where she strove to make an impact on children’s health, veterans affairs and education. Michelle Obama feels lucky to have had strong female role models in her life, and she has made it part of her life’s work to help empower the next generation of civic leaders.<br /><br />Disclaimer: <br /><br /><br />This is a CONCISE VERSION of Becoming by Michelle Obama. It summarizes the book in detail, to help people understand and implement the original work by Michelle Obama. This book is not meant to replace the original book but to serve as a companion to it.<br />
