Former First Lady Michelle Obama inspired ladies all over the world by her commitment to empowering women for eight years.
Educating young girls was one of her biggest messages while her husband, Barack, was in office and when it was time for the Obama’s to leave the White House in January, you just knew that the former FLOTUS wasn’t about to stop motivating women all over the world.
And you were right!
Mrs. Obama’s first major public appearance came at this year’s ESPY Awards, where she posthumously presented the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Eunice Kennedy Shriver for her work founding the Special Olympics.
If you were wondering how beloved the former First Lady remains, she received a standing ovation that lasted 25 seconds – and this was in a room full of pretty accomplished individuals!

Good news if you can’t get enough of Michelle Obama because she made an appearance in Denver recently that has a lot of ladies talking.
Of course, she received another ovation from the crowd of roughly 8,500 who were mostly women who gathered to hear Mrs. Obama speak on a wide range of topics, including two of her signature causes: health and nutrition and the education of young girls. She also spoke openly and candidly about the empowerment of women and shared the hurtful things she had to deal with being the first woman of color First Lady.
At the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary in Denver, more seats were forced by the Pepsi Center to be opened because of the massive popularity of Mrs. Obama and the interest in hearing her speak publically again.
As expected, Mrs. Obama did not disappoint.
