Becoming by Michelle Obama

Reading your book, your autobiography was mind-blowing, empowering! Thank you, Michelle Obama, for having written down your life for others to get to know you as a person.

I have a weakness for well-written biographies and autobiographies. When I have the feeling that I can witness a person’s life without any filters added, when I have the feeling I can really get to know a person, then I love reading the biography or autobiography (the latter have it far easier as we all know our own lives best).

This autobiography is just brilliant. It is super well written! When I finished the book, I had the feeling that I personally know the former First Lady of the USA, and that does mean something.

So, thank you, Michelle, for sharing your story. The story of you before your husband. The story of you with your husband and behind the scenes of the story we all think we knew, but that honestly, almost no one has a clue about.

This book was the first that I read in 2019, it was a Christmas present, and as it is a must-read book I read it straight away.

Becoming has turned into a sort of guide for me. It is empowering for young women. The book made me bring my reflexions of the past half year or so a bit further. Now, I am ready to jump, to take the next leap.

Like Michelle Obama when she was longing for professional change, I am now taking up networking, to test the waters, to see if something is out there.

And maybe Becoming will lead me and many other girls and women to make a difference. To find that power that keeps them going, to give them structure, a mission, a place, a purpose.

  1. Solveig, I love your passionate post about this book … one I also received for Christmas and following your comments about it here I can’t wait to read. It’s now on the top of my TBR pile (literally!) Good luck with your new professional direction and hope networking becomes a success for you.
