Michelle LaVaughn Obama was born in 1964. She grew up in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood. After graduating from Princeton University and Harvard Law School in 1988, Michelle Robinson worked as an attorney at Sidley Austin.
Her talent and persuasiveness soon enabled her to become assistant to Chicago Mayor Richard M. Dale. It was at this time that she met a certain Barack Obama, a young lawyer whose mentor she was at the origin and with whom she married in 1992. The couple has two daughters: Malia Ann (born in 1998) and Sasha (born in 2001).
In 1993, she became the executive director of a non-profit association aimed at encouraging young people to work in non-profit and social associations. In 1996, she pursued this mission, this time developing the community service center as Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago. In 2002, she became Executive Director of Community Affairs at the University of Chicago Hospital, and in 2005, she became Vice President of External Affairs at the University of Chicago Medical School.
On January 20, 2009, she holds the Bible at the foot of the Capitol in Washington, D.C., which her husband took the oath of office upon his election as President. The wife of the 44th President of the United States of America, thus becomes the first black First Lady in the history of this country. Since January 2010, she joined the American Red Cross to support the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Haiti. During her husband’s second presidential campaign, the one so often touted for its fashionable taste, she again became a leading media figure.
