An Ode to Michelle

In just a matter of days Michelle Obama will no longer be our First Lady (heavy sigh). But her extraordinary impact has been beautifully captured in a new book that was released this week, The Meaning of Michelle: 16 Writers on the Iconic First Lady and How Her Journey Inspires Our Own. Contributing to this anthology is now an official highlight of my career. I was humbled to have been invited by the prolific Veronica Chambers and the book includes writing by two of my other other sheroes: Ava Duvernay and Roxane Gay. What's up next for our Mom-in-Chief—whose advice to her girls, "When they go low, we go high," has become a national anthem—remains to be seen. But there is one thing I know for sure: Wherever she goes, I'm going.
