I loved this book from the beginning. Michelle Obama's story is one of hope, overcoming, resilience, and how no matter what your circumstances you can become more than what you think is possible. I reccomend this book to everyone!

Between her time as a radio host, television figure, and social media personality, Danni Starr has never been afraid of sharing her opinion. In this book, she takes you on a whirlwind tour of her own life and beyond, with plenty of personal perspective and #BlackGirlMagic to go around. From her struggles with workplace discrimination to the wild Rumspringa of her post-divorce months, from postpartum depression to the joys of friendship, Danni tells her story with honesty, humor, and moxie to spare.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. There's something in here that everyone can relate to. Being able to share your journey, your struggles, your highs and your lows is something that everyone can't do. I applaud Danni for laying it all out on the table and just being her. I applaud her for not being afraid to share her truth with the world because by doing that she has probably helped more people than she knows. This books has something in it that just about anyone can relate to.
