To kick off our month of strong female role models we decided to highlight Michelle Obama. A woman filled with poise and grace no one could have predicted the profound impact and legacy that she would leave. Arguably the most influential first lady that has ever graced the White House she dazzled at the inauguration ball and at her numerous public engagements, but her beauty isn’t the thing that created her legacy. It was the way that she spoke passionately about the issues close to her heart including the progression of girls, healthy eating and wellbeing and the warmth and compassion demonstrated in all her public appearances. For the eight years that her husband held office, she inspired and motivated people around her to do more. The positivity that she exudes and the multiple roles that we observed her playing filled us as women with hope for a future where girls could be anything and everything that they want to be. And it is for this reason that we have chosen Michele Obama as our first Women of Kaieteur profile.
To close with a quote from the lady herself
“Women and girls can do whatever they want. There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.”
