COVER FAB: FLOTUS Michelle Obama Rocks The Cover Of “More Mag” February 2012 Issue!

Filed under : Entertainment, Lifestyle

The United States of America’s First Lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama opens up about her White House mentoring program in this month’s issue of More Magazine.

“Growing up the way that I did — kid from the South Side, going to public schools — the more my career developed, I realized how much I didn’t see, how little exposure I had to opportunities.”

FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s More Magazine cover picture is absolutely breathtaking…. Equally amazing is the elite White House mentoring program created by the First Lady herself…

“To open a secret door for others that hadn’t been opened for me,” by pairing disadvantaged girls with some of the powerful women in the land.

Mrs. Obama explains to the newest inductees of high schoolers, noting that the President’s internal White House acronym is POTUS:

““They call me FLOTUS, for first lady of the United States. And there are many times when FLOTUS and POTUS feel like characters.”

There have even been times, she says, when she’s craned her own neck to see which celebrity might be causing all the excitement.

“And it’s me. Oh, man, it’s FLOTUS. FLOTUS is here. No one told me FLOTUS was coming.”

FLOTUS Michelle Obama tells her class of mentees:

“But sometimes, I just want to be Michelle. So you guys have to start slowly seeing me as Michelle, all right?”

For more about Michelle Obama’s unique mentoring program–and why it is so personally meaningful to her–read the full story in the February 2012 More Magazine, on sale now.
