Michelle Obama

The First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama graced the September cover of Ladies’ Home Journal and spoke about the importance of having more women in leadership roles.

“We have to start with them while they’re young and instill in girls a sense of confidence. That’s why sports are so important. They teach you how to compete — how to fall down and get back up.
