Michelle Obama came from a humble, working class upbringing to become one of the most powerful women in the world. She worked her way from Euclid Avenue in Chicago's South Shore to Princeton University, Harvard Law School, and finally to First Lady of the United States. She became the first African American First Lady in the history of the United States. Her rise to success helped inspire an entire generation, and her work ethic, intelligence, and humility helped cement and support American policy throughout the world. She successfully worked her way up from a working-class family that viewed takeout pizza as a treat, to being a student at Harvard Law School. She fearlessly changed careers when she realized that she did not enjoy working as an attorney, and became a sought after non-profit administrator. Although she disliked the idea of politics, she loyally and fiercely backed her husband's rise to power.
