Michelle Obama, First Lady and wife of the 44th and current President of the United States Barrack Obama is on the cover of the Mother’s Day edition of Ebony Magazine.
The mother of two daughters who dons a sleeveless blue Tracy Reese dress with a short V-neck and ruching talks about motherhood, healthy living and of course, the President.
The Huffington Post have posted excerpts from the publication:
On raising Sasha and Malia
‘Barack and I feel that our greatest responsibility is to raise two productive, respectful, kind empathetic young women’.
On counteracting negative depictions of women in pop culture for the girls
‘My husband talks to our girls about how he expects men in their lives to treat them, and he offers examples by how he treats me and how he treats them’.
On the President dealing with his daily grind
‘He functions better every day when he gets his workout in. It clears his mind–it gets him ready. I don’t think there’s anybody who can imagine just what that man deals with over the course of a 24-hour period. He is able to do it because he is mentally and physically sharp, so it’s a necessity’.
The edition will hit news stands on April 17,2012.
