2018 was the year I discovered my love of nonfiction. I thought it wasn’t for me, but after reading Educated by Tara Westover, Bad Blood by John Carreyrou, and Becoming by Michelle Obama, I realized how wrong I was.
Over a few weeks I laughed with Michelle, cried with her, and enjoyed simply listening to her. She is graceful, relatable…human. It wasn’t a political narrative, but the story of a young girl becoming a woman and learning more about herself as she grew.
There were so many takeaways for me, but the one that hit closest to home – on page 187 or 10:46:24 in the audio – made me feel as if she were talking for me: saying everything I felt but had a hard time communicating or even getting other people to understand. Go read it and you’ll understand 🌈
She is such a rad person. I wish there were more leaders like her: rational, practical, confident, passionate, eloquent, resilient…I could go on!
If you haven’t grabbed a copy what are you waiting for?! Although I listened to the audio, I had to get the hardcover too!
