We’re halfway through #WomensHistoryMonth, and today I’m highlighting one of our country’s incredible military spouses—Kiesha Yokers, who came to my show in New York City in December with @bluestarfamilies. She’s a mother to two beautiful children. She’s a Navy wife. She’s an advocate for adoption. And she’s passionate about helping women of color build healthier lives. Like so many military spouses, she’s got a lot on her plate. After years of moving around the world with her Naval husband, Keisha stopped teaching elementary school to raise her two children. Soon enough, she decided to change her career path. Kiesha took the leap and started @greenandwellbeauty with the desire to see women of color live longer, healthier lives. It's become an inspiring and safe place to talk about issues close to Kiesha’s heart. Do you have a "swerve moment" that changed your path in life? Share in the comments below! #IAmBecoming

While in Milwaukee, my friend Conan O’Brien and I surprised some high school juniors from across the city who were meeting with @reachhigher2020 to talk about their college dreams. We told them how proud we are of them, and we reminded them that so many people have their backs! To the incredible young people out there, don't forget that I'm rooting for you every step of the way. I can't wait to see what you achieve! #ReachHigher

It was such a treat to sit down with two book clubs from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area for a conversation with women from so many different walks of life. But as so often happens, rather than focusing on surface-level differences, we talked about so many things we all share. This week, I hope you’ll try to do the same. Strike up a conversation with that coworker or neighbor you haven’t really had a chance to meet yet. By sharing our stories—our little joys and struggles—we can see what unites us. #IAmBecoming

This beautiful smile belongs to Eliakunda Kaaya. I sat down with her and several of her peers for a conversation on girls' education last fall. Eliakunda comes from a family of nine children in Tanzania. She once said, "My own brothers would say… that it was a waste of time and waste of investment to…[send] me to school, because a woman is meant to be married.” But Eliakunda never believed that. She became the first person in her family to go to high school—and then the first to go to college. After she graduated she became a @ShesTheFirst Fellow and she launched a project called "Her Journey to School,” which builds on her own experience by reaching out to parents about the importance of sending their daughters to school. Eliakunda's story shows us the power of education—and the promise inside every single girl around the world. #InternationalWomensDay

Few things in life inspire me like young people taking action. This week, I visited with the #ObamaScholars, who have spent the past few days connecting and learning together in D.C. Already, they’re making profound differences in their home countries, from expanding peacebuilding operations in Colombia to fighting for gender rights and marginalized communities in Pakistan. Now, through the @ObamaFoundation, the University of Chicago, and Columbia University, they’re taking their work to the next level with a world-class education. The work they are doing is remarkable, and the best resource they have is each other—because work like this is impossible in isolation. I know that in the years ahead, these young leaders will make their communities better, and in turn, that makes the world a little brighter for all of us.

As I read through your feedback on my book, one theme that keeps popping up is how to empower the women around us—whether that's our girlfriends, coworkers, or the women we see at the gym or at happy hour. Empowering each other is a big question and can take a lot of forms, but one thing I know is that it's up to us to be there for each other—especially those who often feel overlooked—because when someone shows genuine interest in your growth and development, it can make all the difference in the world. So for#WomensHistoryMonth, I want you to let me know how you’re making an impact on another woman's life. Whether that’s joining a mentoring program, asking your boss about how they’re planning to get more women’s voices at the table, or simply taking 10 minutes to lend an ear to your coworker over coffee, I want to hear what you’re up to! Let me know in a short video or in comments below. #IAmBecoming #WellnessWednesday

Five years ago, we decided we wanted to make a big splash for all students who were committing to college—the same way we do athletes. Every year on #CollegeSigningDay, students across the country announce their plans to go to community college, university, trade or vocational school, or join the military—and the rest of us do our part to help them celebrate. This year, I’ll be @UCLA on May 1 with @BetterMakeRoom to do just that. And I can use your help to show the amazing young people in your community that we’ve got their backs, too. So I hope you’ll sign up to host your own Signing Day event in your community at bettermakeroom.org/collegesigningday. #BetterMakeRoom

Today, my friend Michele Norris and I sat down with the ladies of @HTXBookAndBrunch in Houston to talk about our individual paths of becoming. With newlyweds and some new moms in the group, we focused on the necessity of self-care, the important role girlfriends play in our lives, and the balancing act of work and family. Thanks to Cindy and Alexis for leading the conversation — it was so much fun! To all the book clubs out there, keep your feedback and questions coming. Add them to the comments below or share using #IAmBecoming. Can't wait to hear from you!

As we enter #WomensHistoryMonth, I’m going to keep focusing on the stories of the history that’s being made today. I’ll be telling you about young women I’ve met recently—young women who are making the most of the opportunities created by the generations who came before them. I met this first group of young ladies when I visited my alma mater, @WhitneyMYoungHS on the South Side of Chicago, last fall with my friend Robin Roberts. They’re working hard in their classes, expressing themselves through dance, and dreaming big for themselves in the years ahead. It probably goes without saying, but I see a lot of myself in these smiles. And I can’t wait to see what they become. #FlashbackFriday #IAmBecoming

Your story matters—but if you don’t see that, chances are no one else will either. So even though I know it isn’t always easy, I hope everyone out there finds the strength to share their truth. Because the world needs to hear it. That’s the message I had for the students at the Gila River Indian Community in Arizona—one of the brightest, most resilient, most inspiring groups I’ve met. I have a feeling we’ll hear more from them in the years ahead. #MondayMotivation #ReachHigher

This huggable young woman is Shayla Allen—and she’s the next young history-maker I want to tell you about during #BlackHistoryMonth. I met Shayla in Philadelphia last November along with several of her friends at @beGirl.world. In addition to working hard in her classes at Central High School, Shayla is active in the African American student union and poetry club. She loves to dance, whether it’s modern, jazz, ballet, or anything else. One day, she hopes to be an English or science teacher. She shared her own #IAmBecoming story with me saying, "I'm becoming a girl who is comfortable and happy in the skin I'm in and I honestly wouldn't have it any other way." I'm so proud of you, Shayla—just like I’m proud of all the young people finding strength and pride in who they are. Do you know a young leader who deserves a shoutout? Share their story with me and tag them in the comments below.#ShareBlackStories #FlashbackFriday

Jaquan Frierson is the next young history-maker I want to tell you about for #BlackHistoryMonth. I saw Jaquan last year at the @motownmuseum with a group of inspiring young men from @waynestate —and it turned out he’d celebrated #CollegeSigningDay in Detroit with me 3 years earlier, too. He’s been busy since I saw him last. Jaquan is a first-generation college student. He’s studying mechanical engineering. He’s conducting research into new sources of renewable energy. He’s a volunteer math tutor for Detroit public schools. And he started his own record label. There are a lot of roads in front of Jaquan—he hopes to start a business in Detroit someday—just like there are unlimited pathways for all those students like him across the country. They might be the first in their families to get a college degree, but they won’t be the last. Now, I want to hear from you! Share a story of a first-generation college student paving the way for those behind them by using #ShareBlackStories. #FlashbackFriday

Today I sat down with several young people from the Gila River Indian Community in Chandler, Arizona, home to the Akimel O’otham and Pee Posh tribes. To me, these students are living proof of the power of resilience. No matter what they’re facing, no matter their circumstances, they get up every day believing that they can make life better for themselves, their families, and their peers. I believe in them, too—and I hope you do as well. This isn’t the last time we’ll hear from Samaira, Andrew, Adam, Charisma, Daniel, Karissa, and Erica. #ReachHigher

For me, a big part of friendship is showing up for your girls—whether that’s for a birthday, a quick catch-up after work, or a major milestone. So I was thrilled to be there for the one and only @aliciakeys at the #GRAMMYs. She is one of the most genuine, caring, and thoughtful people I know—there’s no one better to help us all celebrate the unifying power of music!

This #BlackHistoryMonth, I’m paying tribute not only to the contributions that have been made over the years, but all the history being made right now. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing stories of young people I’ve met in the past year—young people who stand on the shoulders of the giants we celebrate this month while also building a legacy of their own. This charming young woman is Alexandra Swain, who I met when I visited my alma mater, @WhitneyMYoungHS, in Chicago. She’s a junior there, editor of the school newspaper, president of the mock trial team, and a mentor to younger students. Outside of school, she volunteers at a retirement home, an animal welfare organization, and her local parks district. She’s making history, day by day, in big ways and in small. What gives me hope is that there are millions of young people like Alexandra doing us proud all across the country. They’re a reminder that so much of our history is yet to be written. Now, I call on you to share your own stories with #ShareBlackStories. #FlashbackFriday

Since I published my memoir, one of my favorite parts of the whole experience has been hearing from all of you—especially those of you in book clubs. I know that you all have been having some long discussions with your friends, and I hope it’s been worthwhile. So, as I prepare for the conversations I’ll be having on this final leg of my book tour, I’d love to hear more about what you all have been talking about! What issues have you been focusing on? What resonated in your own lives? What did you want to hear more about? Share your thoughts with me using #IAmBecoming. Also, your book club could get tickets to one of my events this spring—learn more at becomingmichelleobama.com.

Give it up for National School Counselor of the Year Brian Coleman from my hometown of Chicago! Hearing his story is the perfect kind of #MondayMotivation for #NSCW19. To Brian and school counselors across the country, thank you for helping our students reach their full potential! Now I want to hear from you: Tell me about how a school counselor has helped you on your journey. #ReachHigher

As I reflect on the past year, I’m so thankful and overwhelmed by all the new experiences and memories. From launching new endeavors and engaging new voters to sharing my story with all of you—and hearing about so many of yours as well. Thank you all for joining me on this journey and for sharing so much of yourselves. There’s so much to discover in 2019! #IAmBecoming #top9

My #IAmBecoming 2018 tour could not have been possible without these terrific, trailblazing women. From longtime mentors to friends new and old, I couldn't have done this without each and every one of them!

That's a wrap! When I think about all the people who have come out to our events over these past few weeks, I think about a little working-class kid named Michelle LaVaughn Robinson—an ordinary girl who had some tales to tell, some failures and some successes, too. She had a lot to learn, a lot to experience, a lot to give—more than she ever could have imagined. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about my story lately, and what I keep coming back to is that no matter where we came from, we all share so much. People of all backgrounds, skin colors, and political persuasions can relate to feeling uncertain or overwhelmed. We’ve all been a little frustrated by the slow, frustrating growth necessary to get where we want to go. We’ve all struggled with the balancing act that can take over days, years, or decades of our lives. And I want us all to remember that these are the moments and lessons that make us who we are -- every little twist and turn, every little bump and bruise, and ultimately every joys and every triumph, no matter how large or small. So I hope all of you believe in your story. I hope you recognize that what you see as a weakness might actually be a strength. I hope you recognize the power of your voice. And I hope you remind yourself that there isn't one right way to be an American. There isn’t one way to make your contribution in this country. So thank you all for your part of our story. Thank you for being who you are. And to everyone who’s read my memoir, or come to one of our events, or posted something online, thank you for being on this journey with me. Thank you for helping me continue to become. I hope my story can serve as a boost in your own process of becoming, too. I love you all. #IAmBecoming

As I told the young ladies I met in Dallas this week, your story is the most powerful part of who you are -- the struggles, failures, successes and everything in between. Remember to always stay open to new experiences and never let the doubters get in the way. You all are so beautiful. #IAmBecoming

Starting @PublicAllies Chicago was the best job I ever had – formative and fulfilling, it was a daily reminder of the power and opportunity I had to create real change. I loved seeing that same spark in the young leaders I met in San Jose. We’ll hear from them again soon.
