Michelle Obama Just Released The Cover Of Her Upcoming Memoir Becoming

‘Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.’

Michelle Obama has spent the last couple days sharing photos from her youth that will appear in her memoir, Becoming, in a buildup to the final reveal of the book’s cover today. The former First Lady just shared the image of it on her Instagram and Twitter. She appears radiant with curled hair and an off-the-shoulder top:

 

“I’m thrilled to share with all of you the cover for BECOMING,” she wrote. “The process of writing this book has been so personally meaningful and illuminating for me. As I prepare to share BECOMING this fall, I hope you’ll also think about your own story, and trust that it will help you become whoever you aspire to be. Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.”
