Michelle Obama

The First Lady covers the newest issue of Time magazine available on newsstands tomorrow.

The great-great-granddaughter of slaves now occupies a house built by them, one of the most professionally accomplished First Ladies ever cheerfully chooses to call herself Mom in Chief, and the South Side girl whose motivation often came from defying people who tried to stop her now gets to write her own set of rules. -Time magazine.

The following is an excerpt from The First Lady's interview with Time magazine.

"And I have probably dedicated more of my life to trying to break down those barriers for people. I think that might be one of the small themes in my professional life, is to try to be the bridge so that more people feel like they have access; that their voice, that their faces, that their worlds count in places like this and that there is understanding across those divides."
