#Roommates, our eternal First Lady Michelle Obama continues to do great things since she left the White House, including writing her best-selling memoirs to the New York Times, cultivating and producing projects with Netflix, browsing the country as a motivational speaker and an incredible example of a loving wife and mother.
Well, apparently most Americans feel the same love for Michelle as we do, because for the second year in a row, she was officially named “the most admired woman” in America, winning 10% of the vote. Melania Trump, Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton and climate activist Greta Thunberg complete the list.
Hillary Clinton holds the record for being named “Most Admired Woman” – she held the title for 15 years, a record, from 2002 to 2017.
Most of Michelle’s predecessors for the title were also former first ladies, but over the years the list of “most admired women” has been somewhat more diverse than that of men. Australian nurse Sister Elizabeth Kenny, Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, Ethel Kennedy, Mother Teresa and Margaret Thatcher are also at the top of the list.
It was the same list that crowned Michelle’s husband, our eternal President Barack Obama, as “the most admired man in the United States” earlier this week. Although we don’t know how or why it happened, but Barack shares his 2019 title with Donald Trump, who has also been named the most admired man in the country this year.
Michelle’s last honor is no surprise to us, as she is certainly one of our favorites and the true definition of #BlackGirlMagic. Congratulations Michelle!
Roommates, what do you think?
