Former First Lady Michelle Obama on ESSENCE
The sight of Former First Lady Michelle Obama confidently showcasing her natural curls on the latest cover of ESSENCE’s December/January issue resonates deeply with me. This past year, I embarked on my own journey of embracing my natural curls, inspired by the realization that it not only simplifies my hair care routine but is also a cost-effective and time-saving choice compared to the regular use of a flat iron.
Discovering the right product has been key to defining and enhancing my curls. Personally, I've found my holy grail in Noodle Head Curling Creme by Beyond the Zone, a gem that costs less than $15. After years of searching and investing in various products, stumbling upon this affordable and effective creme has been a game-changer. As the saying goes, “better late than never,” and I couldn't agree more.
No Politics Allowed
Whether or not you agree with Former First Lady Michelle Obama's politics, there is no doubt that she is an inspiration to women and young girls of all backgrounds. She has always been a champion of healthy eating, education, and our veterans to list just a few. I would love to meet her one day get one of her infamous hugs and thank her for always being a beacon of positivity regardless of the circumstances. Michelle Obama has been around the country promoting her book “Becoming.” My favorite television interview that I have seen so far has to be the one that she did with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show.
Happiest Days in the White House
In the Essence December/January issue, Former First Lady Michelle Obama gives us the scoop on her happiest days in the White House, how she balanced both a career and a family, and shares advice on how to find a partner that shares your same goals and aspirations.
A quote from the ESSENCE article on her happiest days in the White House:
“Any day that I got to spend time with children was a good day. Sometimes if I was in need of a pick-me-up, my staff would schedule an event with young people to give me a boost. Kids give me energy. They get me out of my own head and remind me about the things that are most important.”
