U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama is celebrating her 50th birthday on January 17. She says that she owes her best qualities to her parents. Michelle’s father, Fraser Robinson worked at a city water plant in Chicago, fell ill and died rather early. Her mother, Marian Robinson, raised Michelle and her brother Craig, a former professional basketball player and now a coach.
Michelle first met Barack Obama at one of the law firms in Chicago. By that time, Michelle had already graduated from Princeton University and earned her Jurius Doctor (J.D.) degree from Harvard Law School. Three years later, they got married. In 1998, their first daughter, Malia, was born. In 2001, they had their second daughter, Natasha, whom the family calls Sasha.
Michelle has always been by Barack’s side throughout his political career. The First Lady’s popularity ratings in the U.S. are even higher than those of her husband. According to last year’s McClatchy survey, 63% of the respondents thought highly of Michelle while 26% held a negative view of her. One of the closest friends of the Obama family, Senior Advisor to the President of the United States, Valerie Jarrett said Barack and Michelle “serve as an example” to all Americans. It is a very important role, especially for a woman, added Jarrett.
A big birthday celebration will be held at the White House on Saturday. The guests are advised to put on comfortable clothes and rehearse some dance moves. Pop singer Beyonce is among those expected to attend the celebration.
