Barack and Michelle Obama on Essence and Instyle's October Issue Covers
After 8 years' tenure of office, President Obama and wife Michelle would have to say goodbye to The White House. There were some ups and downs, but it's been a wonderful journey and we have seen positive changes in the country.
As the First Family round up for that final day, they decided to grace the October Issue covers of not one, but two leading magazines; Essence and Instyle in which they talk about their personal life, the situation of the nation and the legacy the aspire to leave behind.
President Obama and Michelle on Essence magazine October Issue
In the magazine, Obama said “…I can unequivocally say that America is better off now than we were when we came into office. By almost every economic measure, we’re better off,” President Obama said. “But having said that, we still have a lot of work to do.”
“I think when it comes to Black kids, it means something for them to have spent most of their life seeing the family in the White House look like them,” Mrs. Obama said. “It matters. All the future work that Barack talked about, I think over these last few years, we’ve kind of knocked the ceiling of limitation off the roofs of many young kids; imaginations of what’s possible for them. And as a mother, I wouldn’t underestimate how important that is, having that vision that you can really do anything—not because somebody told you, but because you’ve seen and experienced it. I think that will be a lasting impact on our kids.”

Michelle Obama on Instyle's October Issue cover
On the cover of Instyle we have FLOTUS posing alone in stylish dress as a fashion icon. She talked about the tremendous year as the First Lady and raising teenage daughters at the same time.
Michelle is undoubtedly one of the most fashionable First Lady in the history of America. We know that for sure because her clothes regularly sell out the moment she wears them.
“I tend not to worry about the trends, because what works for an 18-year-old selfie queen may not for a 52-year-old First Lady who is a mom of teenagers she is trying to be a good role model for,” she tells InStyle about her sartorial choices.
