Jan. 17 was a big day for Michelle Obama. The First Lady celebrated her 49th birthday, but she was the one handing out gifts! She debuted a second new Twitter account, @FLOTUS — and she revealed an edgy new haircut in the process! In a photo alongside Inaugural citizen co-chair David Hall, Michelle flaunted a dramatic new set of thick, face-framing bangs.
The First Lady was meeting with David to discuss the National Day of Service on Jan. 19, which is an annual event held in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that seeks for people all over the country to volunteer in their communities. Michelle recently spoke with Us Weekly about why she feels it’s so important to give back to where you came from.
“My parents taught me from an early age that all of us can find time to give back. And throughout my life, whenever I’ve volunteered, I leave feeling like I’m getting as much as I’m giving.”
Michelle Obama Attracted To Barack Because Of His Commitment To Service
It’s this passion for service that drew her to her husband, President Barack Obama. “When I was first getting to know Barack, one of the things that stood out was his commitment to serving others,” she said. “When we got married and started a family, we decided that we’d make service a central part of everything we do, and now we’re trying to pass that on to our girls [Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11], as well.”
