16 Things We Learned About Michelle Obama From "Becoming" On Netflix
She's our favourite First Lady for a reason.
Michelle Obama – we know her, we love her, many of of us have read her memoir.
Well in case you didn't know, Netflix have dropped a new documentary on our favourite former First Lady, and here's what we learned.
She starts every day listening to music.
She likes to get advice from locals.
When the Obama's moved into the Whitehouse, Michelle made lots of changes so that it would feel like a family home.
The Robinsons were a working class family, and she had a very down to earth upbringing.
Despite these barriers, her family upbringing taught her to never feel invisible.
Her guidance counsellor didn't have faith in Michelle, and pretty much said that Princeton wasn't the university for her.
And going to Princeton as a black woman wasn't without its struggles.
She instantly fell for Barack's voice over the phone.
She was disappointed in the American public for not all voting when it really mattered.
And she feels that, despite the historic changes in the American government, there's still a lot more work to be done.
Some of her staff have been working with her for over a decade, and they're pretty much as close as family.
She's played the piano since she was a kid and has always been very dedicated to it.
When Barack's presidential term ended, she cried for half an hour after leaving the Whitehouse.
When the passage of marriage equality was granted, she and Malia snuck out of the Whitehouse to take part in the celebrations, instead of just watching it on TV.
She loves meeting members of the public and making eye contact with everyone she meets is very important to her.
And finally, Michelle wants us to believe that our stories have value.
You can watch Becoming on Netflix now.
