Michelle Obama has seen life from close quarters beginning with her childhood in Chicago and ending in the White House [VIDEO]. She came from a humble background and could bond quite easily with others. That gave her a chance to interact and work with people from all walks of life and go from strength to strength to fulfill her duties. She was the first lady of America, wife of Barack Obama and mother to her daughters Malia and Sasha.

Her book “Becoming” is not her first. She already has one on gardening titled "American Grown" published in 2012.

First ladies of America have penned their memoirs earlier. Laura Bush had her "Spoken from the Heart" while Hillary Rodham Clinton wrote “Living History."
