Now, we were first introduced to Michelle through her husband, the former president Barack Obama.

The couple first met when a then twenty-five-year-old Michelle Robinson was assigned as a mentor for a twenty-eight-year-old Barack Obama at their law firm.

Though Michelle admits that, initially, she wasn't too keen on the idea of dating Barack...

"Barack, about a month in, asked me out, and I thought 'No way. This is completely tacky,'" she told ABC News, when discussing how the pair had met.

But it was clearly meant to be.

Barack's proposed date was clearly a hit, as the pair were quick to become a couple, and later tied the knot in 1992. Michelle noted that her husband's vows were a glimpse at what was to come. “Barack didn’t pledge riches, only a life that would be interesting. On that promise he delivered," she later recalled.

Michelle supported her husband as he navigated his way through politics...

And, along with their 2 young daughters, was suddenly catapulted into the spotlight when he ran for president.

It didn't take the world long to fall completely in love with Michelle...

Her post-White House career is flourishing.

Her memoir, Becoming, which was published in November 2018, was one of the most successful books of the decade, and she regularly attends public engagements and does work for a variety of charities.

The former first lady even launched her own podcast series.

In the episodes, Michelle explores meaningful conversations through candid conversations with guests.
