13 Things You Probably Never Knew About Michelle Obama

The First Lady of America is a fascinating woman, right? Although there is a lot the Obamas keep private in their lives, we do know a few juicy facts about this lady. One of the things that she has taught us is that you can be a strong, powerful woman, but still have fun now and then. Now, if that’s not the makings of a role model, I honestly don’t know what is.
