Michelle Obama said in Becoming, “In sharing my story, I hope to help create space for other stories and other voices, to widen the pathway for who belongs and why.” Just by the opening of Michelle’s memoir, I feel her, I hear her, and I visualize myself just doing some push-ups in the gym, just an ordinary task by ordinary standards.

We mustn’t be cynical. We must live life with purpose, and maximize our human potential with optimism because, in the end, we should always believe things that are possible, then we become.
