FLOTUS Michelle Obama graces the cover of Essence Magazine (August 2014)
In the issue, Michelle shares her highly publicized passion for higher learning and goes deeper in a candid conversation with the Essence Editor-in-Chief – Vanessa K. Bush. According to the mag, Michelle believes a big part of the recipe for success has to do with nurturing resilience in our children.
“I know I tell my kids all the time that they shouldn’t shy away from difficult things, because that is the point at which you are really growing. It’s not just about grades or test scores. Today our kids may shy away from applying to college if they think they don’t have the right grade or test score. But the truth is that the kids who succeed and go on to be successful professionals are the ones who know how to work hard.”
