“By the time I was in my mid-20s and working at a firm, I had everything that I was told I should want, but I could still feel that there was something missing. I started to ask myself some more important questions like ‘What do I really care about and how do I give something back?’ I wanted to be in a position to help folks from neighborhoods like mine, especially young people, have the opportunities that I had. So I quit my job at the law firm and found myself working in careers where I could spend my time lifting up the kinds of communities that I grew up in.”—Michelle Obama

The list of Michelle Obama’s contributions to the people of the U.S. is long. One of her most famous accomplishments has been the Let’s Move! program, which highlighted the importance of healthy eating and exercise. She’s hosted receptions at the White House for women’s rights advocates, publicly stated her belief that LGBTQ rights are equal rights, and while attending WWDC, called for tech companies to hire more women.
