Michelle Obama recently became the very 1st First Lady to be a guest editor for a magazine, during which she revealed that she feared for her daughters and marriage when the family began their new life in Washington after President Barrack Obama began his term after winning the 2008 election.
‘Just days after my family moved to Washington back in 2009, my daughters started their first day at their new schools,’ the first lady writes in her Letter from the Guest Editor.
‘I went with Malia, my mother accompanied Sasha, and as I watched my girls climb into those big black cars filled with agents with guns and saw Sasha’s little face pressed against the window as her car pulled away, it hit me: What on earth were we doing?
‘What were Barack and I doing to our daughters? What were we doing to our marriage? Would they be OK? Would we be OK?
‘At that moment, I made a promise to myself—and my girls—that I would do everything possible to make this disruption to their lives worthwhile.’
Mrs Obama provided a remarkable insight into her inner-most thoughts in a piece written for U.S. women’s magazine ‘More’, as she makes her debut as ‘guest editor’ for the magazine’s July-August edition.
‘There’s never been a first lady who’s ever guest-edited a magazine and certainly not a sitting first lady,’ said Lesley Jane Seymour, More’s editor-in-chief.
‘We hope this issue will empower readers to create positive change, whether by supporting one of the First Lady’s programs or another cause.
The issue, which is released on June 23, also marks Mrs Obama’s 3rd appearance on the Magazine’s cover!
