In the interview, she confesses to readers it was hard work transitioning from Chicago to the White House, saying:
“My story to young people around this country and around the world is, Don’t look at me as the First Lady first; look at me as Michelle Obama, a girl who grew up on the South Side of Chicago. Because I was there, and this is attainable. There is no magic to this. It is hard work….”
She also talks about being a role model and using her life experiences to inspire young women. On the cover, she is feminine and radiant in a gorgeous pink floral dress.
