Every part of our stories—no matter how small or fleeting—has meaning and value. While working on Becoming, I learned a lot of important truths and realized that, more often than not, it was the simplest moments that brought the most meaning to my journey. #IAmBecoming
Tomorrow is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, so I’m celebrating the impact of women scientists around the world—including the next generation of women in #STEM like Nimon, a student from the @GirlsAlliance community in Kenya.
Watch her inspiring story. ❤️
I’m beyond thrilled to share that on March 16, I’ll be launching a new show on @Netflix called Waffles + Mochi! I'm excited for families and children everywhere to join us on our adventures as we discover, cook, and eat delicious food from all over the world.
One of the highlights of sharing my story in Becoming has been hearing from people all over the world, especially young people. So I want to put a call out to every person who’s reading Becoming or has already finished it to share your thoughts and your questions!
School counselors have been such an important support system for our students as they’ve navigated this difficult year. I couldn’t be more grateful for their work—this year and every year. Congrats to @ASCAtweets's 2021 School Counselor of the Year, Olivia Carter! #ReachHigher
TIME's new cover: Amanda Gorman in conversation with Michelle Obama, Ibram X. Kendi on the Black Renaissance and more
Like so many of you, I was moved as I watched @TheAmandaGorman read her poem at the inauguration. I first met her back in 2016, and over the years, I've seen her continue to inspire people with her words. I'm so proud of the young woman she has become.
After an extensive federal regulatory review, we are excited to announce the Obama Presidential Center will break ground on the South Side of Chicago in 2021.
Watch President @BarackObama reflect on the news.
As a girl from the South Side, I can’t wait to bring the Obama Presidential Center to life. It’s a chance to bring people together, foster the next generation of leaders, and invest in a community with so much potential. Thank you to every Chicagoan who helped make this possible!
💃🏾 I’m so excited to share that we are releasing new young readers’ and paperback editions of Becoming on March 2! Sharing my story was one of the most freeing experiences of my life, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to keep the conversation going with all of you. #IAmBecoming
