In honor of Presidents Day I am postint one of my most frustrating pieces ever! As a self-taught artist, we are exciting to create the vision we see in our minds but our hands don’t always have the same vision lol I tucked this piece away for months because I couldn’t get the proportions right and it was overwhelming! I got Michelle Obama looking like Wendy Williams and I’m sorry for that. But in overcoming my insecurities of this drawing, I’m posting this to help remind myself that this is a process and I am still learning presidentsday obama mypresidentisblack michelleobama wendywilliams process create art female femaleartist blackart vibes goodvibes inspiration inspire blackhistorymonth

Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. After graduating from Columbia University in 1983, he worked as a community organizer in Chicago. In 1988, he enrolled in Harvard Law School, where he was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. After graduating, he became a civil rights attorney and an academic, teaching constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He represented the 13th district for three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, when he ran for the U.S. Senate. He received national attention in 2004 with his March primary win, his well-received July Democratic National Convention keynote address, and his landslide November election to the Senate. In 2008, he was nominated for president a year after his campaign began and after a close primary campaign against Hillary Clinton. He was elected over Republican John McCain and was inaugurated on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, he was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. He served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017 obama presidentsday honor blackhistory365 blackhistorymonth potus 44 powercouple celebration barackobama michelleobama

Reposted from cnn - When Kindergarten teacher Shannon Grimm noticed that a girl in her class was being teased for her short hair, Grimm decided to show some solidarity. Grimm chopped her waist-length brown hair into a pixie cut to match her student Priscilla’s. At a school board meeting last week, 5-year-old Priscilla presented Grimm with a medal for being her hero. Grimm also nominated Priscilla for a “Student of the Month” award for being brave. The two are pictured above with their school’s superintendent.

Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts, good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with somebody you want to marry, but it’s with the friends that you choose. It’s with the people you surround yourselves with. michelleobama quotes instagram

I never imagined in my I would graduate from college and then live abroad multiple times in my 20s and 30s. In my 30s, I never imagined I would have a second at 40, start running, hire a coach, and complete a marathon when I was 43. At 43, I started running on trails, and have a crazy dream of running up Pike's Peak in a couple years. Thank goodness I keep reaching, even when I can't quite believe that it's possible. I'm still finding my potential, and I'm not done yet. Neither are you Pictured: My 3 year old who wants to be a firefighter.

📚Book number five of 2019: Becoming by Michelle Obama ***** This memoir depicts the life thus far of Michelle Obama, starting from her childhood in Chicago and ending with the end of her time as FLOTUS. ***** I can already tell that this is going to be one of my favorite books I read all year. It was such a joy to get the chance to learn more about Michelle and to hear about details of her and her family’s life in the White House that I would never have known otherwise. It’s hard to sum up how much this book meant to me, but I will say that it’s emotional, inspiring, and full of hope and love. Especially during these upsetting and sad times, this was a lovely reminder of what our country can be. ***** 5/5 ***** reading bookstagram books becomingmichelleobama becoming michelleobama

I’ve been hanging out with Michelle Obama these last few weeks - well, it feels that way as I read her book. ❤️ I was a huge fan and I knew she was a class act, but getting the backstories and life context has moved me tremendously. She’s truly made the world a better place. As a beautiful, black woman overflowing with dignity, a family woman committed to supporting her sphere of people, and a lawyer/advocate/FLOTUS for women and people everywhere, she continues to do. good. anyway. I’ve loved reading parts aloud to my . They’ve cheered on her victories which are all of our victories. Do good anyways, . blackhistorymonth michelleobama representationmatters allofourhistory “Do good anyway.” ~ Mother Teresa
