42 Empowering Michelle Obama Quotes

courage within you

I can’t begin to tell you how much I admire this amazing, powerful and kind woman. Especially in the past few years, Michelle Obama became my role model not as the First Lady but as a woman. A woman who goes above and beyond to help others, a woman who is so confident yet humble, a woman who is powerful beyond measure and a woman who is so full of love, she can share it with the entire world.

Since her position as the First Lady is almost over, I would like to share her best quotes and words which inspired millions of people, especially women, to tap into their full potential.

Helping others, whether it’s helping a younger sibling with homework or reaching out to folks struggling in your community or standing up for a classmate who is being bullied is powerful.
