Girl from the South Side and former First Lady. Wife, mother, dog lover. Always hugger-in-chief.
Adjusting to life on campus can be overwhelming—that's why I'm thrilled to team up with @nowthisnews and @YouTube on a playlist of videos that can help everybody’s transition, no matter what school you're going to. Watch now: @ReachHigher #YouTubeLearning
As students here in the U.S. head back to school, let's remember that more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world don’t have that opportunity. This #WorldCharityDay, share your #BackToSchool photo and take action with the @girlsalliance:
Sarah Hurwitz is a brilliant writer with a big heart and a kind soul—and I’m sure @HereAllAlong will reflect her thoughtfulness and eloquence, which I depended on for so many years. I’m so proud of you, Sarah, for sharing your journey and your voice with the world!
Whether they’re cuddling up with me on the couch or rolling around in the backyard, I love these two balls of fur. Happy #NationalDogDay to Bo and Sunny!
On #WomensEqualityDay, I'm proud of all the women and girls who are out there empowering others in their communities to make their voices heard. Thank you all for the work you’re doing, and I hope you'll share your story with @USOWomen and @WhenWeAllVote!
Barack and I want to help more people see their own story in someone else’s. It’s why we started Higher Ground Productions, and it’s what we talked about with Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, who directed @afactoryfilm. Check out their documentary, now streaming on @netflix.
Always breaking barriers, @Simone_Biles—couldn’t be more proud of you!
One of the best experiences of my life has been meeting young people all over the world. They’re proof that our best days are still ahead. On #InternationalYouthDay, check out the @GirlsAlliance to help girls lead us into the years ahead:
So proud to join all these extraordinary women in this tribute to a legend.
#EqualityCantWait because every woman deserves a seat at the table! Proud of my friend @MelindaGates and so many others for elevating this conversation.
Thrilled to visit with @CocoGauff today—a wonderful young woman who’s showing us that we don’t have to wait to see what the next generation can do.
As part of #NationalGirlfriendsDay, let's give a shoutout to the friends who always have our backs! My girlfriends aren’t just people I like to hang out with—though we do plenty of that—they’re a vital part of who I am and who I’ll keep becoming.
On #NationalDanceDay, I'm shouting out the Lethal Ladies, a Baltimore STEP team who I saw perform back in 2017. I’m so proud of you all—and everyone who’s dancing today!
I am so proud of everyone I met today at the #BeatingTheOdds Summit with @ReachHigher. To anyone out there who feels like the world is stacked against them, know that I'm rooting for you to succeed and reach your full potential.
What truly makes our country great is its diversity. I’ve seen that beauty in so many ways over the years. Whether we are born here or seek refuge here, there’s a place for us all. We must remember it’s not my America or your America. It’s our America.
Next Tuesday, I'll host our 5th anniversary #BeatingTheOdds Summit with @ReachHigher. This event has introduced me to so many incredible students, including Darius Wesley, who overcame so much to become the first college graduate in his family. Can’t wait to see him again!
So proud of the #ObamaLeaders gathered in Johannesburg this week! These folks are working hard and dreaming big—and I can’t wait to see what they’ll do in the years ahead.
Wishing a very happy birthday to @Malala! To celebrate #MalalaDay, join me and the @GirlsAlliance in our work to empower girls around the world. Check out to learn more and get involved.
To all the teachers and school professionals out there: This fall, I need your help to show our young people that their voices matter—and that voting can make a real difference in their lives. Head over to to team up with me and @WhenWeAllVote!
At the Women’s World Cup, we saw how sports can inspire and elevate us all. Thuba Sibanda is an @ObamaFoundation leader who uses sports to empower girls in Namibia every day. You can support leaders like Thuba through the @GirlsAlliance, and I hope you do:
I was lucky enough to share a few moments with Cameron Boyce—on set, at the White House and on a service project—enough time to recognize that not only did he have incredible talent, but also an incredible heart. Sending love & hugs to his family, friends and his many, many fans.
So proud of you, Team USA—you inspire us all! #OneNationOneTeam
Good luck to the @USWNT! You all are some of the most fearless, powerful, awe-inspiring athletes I’ve ever seen—and together, you’re nothing short of extraordinary. #OneNationOneTeam
Hey, #EssenceFest! I brought a few of my girlfriends with me to New Orleans and we can't wait to join you tonight in the Superdome. Who's ready?!
Coco is terrific! 👏🏾
We came, we dodged, we slayed. Dodgeball will never be the same—thanks for hosting @latelateshow!

Raising strong girls isn't just about what we do as women—it’s about the example the men in their lives set, too. This #FathersDay, the @GirlsAlliance is celebrating dads who champion their daughters’ education and dreams. Support projects for girls at
Pretty grateful for this guy. Happy Father’s Day!
Today and every day, I’m grateful for every imperfect photograph, for every incomplete memory, and for the many wonderful, beautiful years I had to learn and love—and be loved by—my father. Happy Father’s Day, Dad. I miss you and I’ll love you forever.
My girlfriends are always there to lift me up and affirm who I am. On #BestFriendsDay, I want each of them to know that they are what keeps me centered through the ups and downs of life. Today, make sure your friends know what they mean to you!
There’s something unexplainable that happens on @SesameStreet, some unique alchemy of aspiration and goodness that just can’t be replicated. That’s why I couldn’t be more honored to celebrate 50 years of Sesame Street tonight. Join me by sharing a memory with #Sesame50.
From an early age, my mom saw that I had a flame inside me and she never tempered it. Mom, thank you for kindling that fire within me, and for your example as a mother and a grandmother to our girls. We would never be who we are today without you. #HappyMothersDay, Mom. Love you.
Today I joined students @SpelmanCollege, @CAU, and @Morehouse to talk about the importance of celebrating our stories. By embracing our whole truth, we don’t just understand ourselves better, we open ourselves to a better understanding of everyone else’s stories too. #IAmBecoming
Congratulations, Meghan and Harry! Barack and I are so thrilled for both of you and can't wait to meet him. #RoyalBaby
I am so proud of each and every student out there who’s celebrating #CollegeSigningDay. I know how hard you've worked and how many hurdles each of you had to clear to make it to today. I can't wait to see what you all do in the years ahead! #BetterMakeRoom
Happy #CollegeSigningDay! I am so proud of every single high school senior out there who’s committing to continue their education. Tune in to join me, @ReachHigher, and @BetterMakeRoom as we celebrate all of their hard work.
You guys are fired up! I can't wait to celebrate so many amazing students on #CollegeSigningDay tomorrow!
I'm loving all these photos from #CollegeSigningDay events happening across the country. Can't wait to celebrate in LA on May 1! #BetterMakeRoom

Happy birthday to my big brother, Craig, who’s always been by my side whenever I’ve needed him. No matter what he’s got going on, he’s always making sure those around him know they’re loved. So today, I want him to know he is, too.
So proud of my girl! The Queen has done it again. @Beyonce, thank you for always living your truth. #Homecoming
The majesty of Notre Dame—the history, artistry, and spirituality—took our breath away, lifting us to a higher understanding of who we are and who we can be. Being here in Paris tonight, my heart aches with the people of France. Yet I know that Notre Dame will soon awe us again.
So incredibly proud of these students! Everyone at @IPROMISESchool—teachers, staff, and of course those incredible young people—is showing what can happen when we believe and invest in our kids. @KingJames
For as long as I can remember, my big brother Craig has always had my back. He's still one of my best friends today. Thanks for always coming out swinging for me, @CraigMalRob! #NationalSiblingsDay
Valerie was one of my earliest, and best, role models for how to be a confident woman and mother in the workplace. She helped me while I was #FindingMyVoice, and I'm so proud to see @ValerieJarrett helping others find and use their own voices.
So excited that you’ll be reading my memoir, @EkpeUdoh—can’t wait to hear what you all discuss! #IAmBecoming #EkpesBookClub
