The Growth Faculty will present ‘An Evening with Michelle Obama’ for one night only in Singapore this December.
‘An Evening with Michelle Obama’ will explore the moments, both public and private, that have shaped the former First Lady’s life.
Reflecting on experiences shared in her book Becoming, attendees will hear about Mrs Obama’s time growing up in the South Side of Chicago, her time as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, as well as highlights from the eight transformative years she served as First Lady of the United States of America.
Michelle Obama, the first African-American to serve as First Lady, helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the United States and around the world.
As First Lady, Mrs. Obama launched and led four key initiatives:
Let’s Move! brought together community leaders, educators, medical professionals, parents, celebrities and others in a nationwide effort to address the challenge of childhood obesity;
Joining Forces, which she launched with Dr. Jill Biden, called on all Americans to rally around service members, veterans, and their families and support them through wellness, education, and employment opportunities;
Reach Higher aimed to inspire young people across America to take charge of their future by completing their education past high school, whether at a professional training program, a community college, or a four-year college or university;
Let Girls Learn, focused on helping adolescent girls around the world go to school.
In 2018, Michelle Obama published her memoir, Becoming, which sold more copies than any other book published in the United States in 2018, achieving that status in just 15 days and instantly rising to the #1 slot on the New York Times Best Sellers list.
“Lawyer, first lady, mother of two and global role model, Michelle Obama's extraordinary story is one that fascinates and inspires business leaders and people everywhere.”
“It’s an incredible honour to bring this once in a lifetime event to Singapore. Michelle Obama is one of the most influential women of our time. This is a truly special occasion for Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region.” says Karen Beattie, Founder of The Growth Faculty.
