First Lady Michelle Obama graces the cover of EBONY magazine’s May 2012 issue.
In the issue, the always elegant First Lady drops words of wisdom on motherhood (raising daughters Sasha, 10 and Malia, 13), fitness and more. Few quotes from the issue below.
“Barack and I feel that our greatest responsibility is to raise two productive, respectful, kind empathetic young women. My husband talks to our girls about how he expects men in their lives to treat them, and he offers examples by how he treats me and how he treats them.”
Mrs. Obama also dished on the perks of having her own mother, Marian Anderson, in the White House, stating that Mrs. Anderson is always there for support with tending to the kids, taking them to their rehearsals, birthday parties, and more:
“Anytime I need to go and plop on her couch and just talk, she’s always there,” Michelle said.
