Book Review: Becoming.


“For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end - Michelle Obama.

Hello bookstagrammers, So I finally finished Becoming and pheew, I must say it worth.
I never knew Michelle was not just a wife to Obama but also an attorney and a great story teller. I unlearned and relearned while reading memoir.
Becoming talks about Michelle's journey while going up as a young girl from the South Side of Chicago to White House, expressing self-doubt, grief, work, love, selflessness, family and many more.
Her growing up story was something I could relate with ( mostly the public means of transportation she took while going to school). And funny enough I read almost all the pages in same long commercial bus to school, though I had to stand sometimes.
She speaks about the discrimination of been black in Princeton, how she questioned herself if she was enough?.
She didn't only share her story but also her experience and the lessons learnt while in the White House for 8 years, not leaving her beloving husband Barack Obama whom I've comed to love more and now looking forward to reading his books.
Her instrests while in the White House was so adorable. From, Children's health, going organic, mentoring girls child and developing programs for both girls and women, not leaving the assistance she gave to military families.
I was inspired and happy she was able to find her voice, defit her doubts and fullfiled her aspirations.
Barack on the other hand is man you'd ever dream of. Not just was he patriotic, he was also a dotting father, and a caring husband.
There story is something I won't ever stop admiring. And this book, I must say I would read someday again.
