Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama was born on 17th January, 1964 in Chicago, Illinois. She is the incumbent First Lady of the United States of America. Her net worth is estimated to be around $11.5 million. Michelle is the wife of Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th President of the United States. She is a graduate from Princeton University and Harvard Law School. Michelle has two daughters with Barack named Malia and Shasha. She had been a lawyer and it is during her stint at Sidley Austin law firm that she met her husband for the first time. In the beginning of Barack’s political career, she did not approve of Barack’s political invovlement because she thought it would have a negative effect on the upbringing of her daughters, but when they agreed to it, she went all out in support of his political career both as a senator and then as a Presidential candidate. Because of her status as the serving First Lady of the United States of America, she is seen by many as a role model and fashion icon. Especially for women she is considered an inspiration because of the way she has been able to shape an image of the Obamas throughout Barack’s political career.
Vanity Fair has listed her among the ten of the world’s best dressed people. Way before her husband won the Presidential election, she was selected by Essence magazine in their list of “25 of the World’s Most Inspiring Women” in 2006. Her achievements throughout her life have made her worth what she is and she achieved it on her own, not necessarily because she is the First Lady. Michelle Obama has also been involved in various social activities throughout her life, like supporting the LGBT community for their rights, awareness drives against HIV and AIDS. She is also a promoter of organic foods. All in all, Michelle Obama has been very successful, both as an individual and as the First Lady and she may be worth more in the future because of her rise as a style icon.
