De 20 mooiste quotes van Michelle Obama

In de Bedrock-serie ‘De mooiste quotes van…’ delen we regelmatig inspirerende citaten van wijze mensen. Het is alweer een paar jaar geleden sinds Donald Trump het stokje over heeft genomen van Barack Obama. Wie we zo mogelijk nog meer missen in het witte huis is zijn vrouw Michelle Obama.

Michelle Obama heeft een indrukwekkend cv. We kennen haar natuurlijk als geweldige first lady, maar daarnaast heeft ze advocaat, moeder, stijlicoon én bestseller auteur op haar papiertje staan. Het was ons al duidelijk wat een inspirerende powervrouw ze is, maar dit bleek nog meer uit haar boek ‘Becoming’, waarin ze openhartig haar verhaal vertelt.

We verzamelden 20 van haar mooiste quotes.
