“There’s no magic to being here”--that with hard work, any one of us can rise to greatness."
~First Lady Michelle Obama
The First Lady's Glamour Magazine Cover.
The First Lady will grace the December issue of Glamour magazine which is due to hit the shelves November 10th. The December Women of the Year issue will feature five different covers with the top five influential women from around the world.
This is also the first time in Glamour's 70 year history that a First Lady has graced the cover. Mrs. Obama was also given a special award for her commitment to mentoring young women. The First Lady is establishing mentoring relationships between top women in the administration and girls in need in the DC area, and is encouraging women leaders around the country to do the same where they live.
For the past 19 years, Glamour has saluted inspiring, high-achieving women through their Women of the Year Awards. This annual event has had an astonishing impact on politics and society—sometimes even saving lives.
