First Lady Obama's new project will be centered on self-worth and resilience
Whether it’s through her poignant speeches or candid podcast conversations, former First Lady Michelle Obama has used storytelling as a vessel to foster a sense of interconnectedness and help individuals recognize their shared humanity. The Chicago native is expanding her imprint in the literary world with the release of a new memoir.
The book—titled The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times—serves as a reflective piece of literature that chronicles moments along Obama’s journey that helped her unlock a deeper sense of self-awareness, self-efficacy, and self-worth. She hopes her candor and the lessons derived from her personal experiences will serve as inspiration for those navigating uncertain chapters in their lives.
