Part of what makes President Barack Obama such an interesting and respected man is his wife, Michelle Obama. They have been a good example to the country of what a good marriage is all about. President Obama wished her a happy 55th birthday in such a touching way that people could not help but respond.
The couple met when he was doing a summer sprint with a law firm. When his boss walked in, it was Michelle. From his book, it appeared that it was love at first sight — at least for him. He said that she was so intelligent and beautiful:
‘I knew it way back then and I’m absolutely convinced of it today — you’re one of a kind, @MichelleObama. Happy Birthday!’
A “dear friend” of hers and former top adviser to President Obama, Valerie Jarrett also wished her a happy birthday. She called Mrs. Obama’s life “an extraordinary journey” and “the quintessential American story:”
@MichelleObama . What an extraordinary journey your life has been, and will continue to be. The quintessential American story. Thank you for being an extraordinary role model for us all. I am so proud of you, my dear friend.’
When the question comes up asking Michelle Obama to describe herself, she immediately says she is Sasha and Malia’s mom. The first African-American first lady grew up on the South Side of Chicago with a father diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
She graduated from Princeton University, then earned her law degree from Harvard Law School.
The White House has described her during the years her husband was in office. The page read:
‘Through her four main initiatives, she has become a role model for women and an advocate for healthy families, service members and their families, higher education, and international adolescent girls education.’
