Nomine Michelle Obama – Named after Michelle Obama

First Lady Michelle Obama

First Lady Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama is a lawyer, writer, and the wife of the 44th and current President, Barack Obama. She is the first African-American First Lady of the United States. Through her four main initiatives, she has become a role model for women and an advocate for healthy families, service members and their families, higher education, and international adolescent girls education.

When people ask First Lady Michelle Obama to describe herself, she doesn’t hesitate to say that first and foremost, she is Malia and Sasha’s mom.

But before she was a mother — or a wife, lawyer, or public servant — she was Fraser and Marian Robinson’s daughter. The Robinsons lived in a brick bungalow on the South Side of Chicago. Fraser was a pump operator for the Chicago Water Department, and despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at a young age, he hardly ever missed a day of work. Marian stayed home to raise Michelle and her older brother Craig, skillfully managing a busy household filled with love, laughter, and important life lessons.

A product of Chicago public schools, Michelle Robinson studied sociology and African-American studies at Princeton University. After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1988, she joined the Chicago law firm Sidley & Austin, where she later met Barack Obama, the man who would become the love of her life.

After a few years, Mrs. Obama decided her true calling was working with people to serve their communities and their neighbors. She served as assistant commissioner of planning and development in Chicago’s City Hall before becoming the founding executive director of the Chicago chapter of Public Allies, an AmeriCorps program that prepares youth for public service.

In 1996, Mrs. Obama joined the University of Chicago with a vision of bringing campus and community together. As Associate Dean of Student Services, she developed the university’s first community service program, and under her leadership as Vice President of Community and External Affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center, volunteerism skyrocketed.

Mrs. Obama has continued her efforts to support and inspire young people during her time as First Lady.

    Remarks by Vice President Joe Biden on The Cancer Moonshot

    World Economic Forum
    Davos, Switzerland

    THE VICE PRESIDENT: Madam Ambassador, thanks for putting together a crowd for us. (Laughter.)

    Folks, I’m delighted to be here and happy to be back with so many distinguished people. And I mean that sincerely. Many of you know as much or more about the subjects I’m going to speak to than I do, including — is Elizabeth Blackburn here? Elizabeth, a Nobel Laureate, who found the BRCA gene. As that old saying goes, she’s forgotten more about this than I’m going to know.

    But, folks, I’m happy to be back here at the World Economic Forum at Davos to talk about the fight against cancer. And I’m accompanied by Greg Simon, who is Executive Director of administration’s Cancer Moonshot and who will lead my Biden Cancer Initiative that I’ll launch after we leave office, which is in about 48 hours. (Laughter.) I hope I have a ride home. (Laughter.) I’ll talk about in a few moments.

    But, Greg, where are you? Greg has had a great deal of experience in this area and he’s led the initiative the last year for the President and me.

    Last year, I arrived at the forum a few days after President Obama delivered his final State of the Union Address, where he announced, quite frankly to my surprise, that he was putting me in charge of a national Cancer Moonshot to double the rate of progress in preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.

    And I was not only genuinely surprised by the announcement, I was genuinely surprised by the response that I got both at home and abroad. Here at Davos I was scheduled — Klaus had asked me to deliver the keynote address on the promise and perils of the

    Fourth Industrial Revolution, and to participate in a few bilateral meetings over the remaining days.

    But given the overwhelming interest in the Cancer Moonshot, the forum asked me if I could quickly convene a roundtable of cancer experts, among whom Elizabeth was one of them, to discuss where we are and where we need to go in the fight against cancer.

    And so I did on a few days notice — we put together such a roundtable — and it kicked off what for me was a year-long journey that’s taken me literally around the world meeting with the best cancer researchers, doctors, nurses, and patients, as well as philanthropists, heads of state — they’ve all been part of it.

    But I’m back here today to outline how far we’ve come and what — at least from our perspective — what path we should chart moving forward.

    Readout of the President’s Meeting with his Counterterrorism and Homeland Security Team

    This morning, the President assembled senior members of his counterterrorism and homeland security team to review ongoing security planning for the 58th Inauguration. The President commended the comprehensive preparations across the law enforcement and intelligence community and directed that all agencies maintain their high state of vigilance to assure we are best postured to protect the homeland against terrorist threats and individuals radicalized to violence.

    Remarks by the President in Final Press Conference

    James S. Brady Press Briefing Room

    2:24 P.M. EST

    THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. Let me start out by saying that I was sorely tempted to wear a tan suit today — (laughter) — for my last press conference. But Michelle, whose fashion sense is a little better than mine, tells me that’s not appropriate in January.

    I covered a lot of the ground that I would want to cover in my farewell address last week. So I’m just going to say a couple of quick things before I start taking questions.

    First, we have been in touch with the Bush family today, after hearing about President George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush being admitted to the hospital this morning. They have not only dedicated their lives to this country, they have been a constant source of friendship and support and good counsel for Michelle and me over the years. They are as fine a couple as we know. And so we want to send our prayers and our love to them. Really good people.

    Second thing I want to do is to thank all of you. Some of you have been covering me for a long time — folks like Christi and Win. Some of you I’ve just gotten to know. We have traveled the world together. We’ve hit a few singles, a few doubles together. I’ve offered advice that I thought was pretty sound, like “don’t do stupid…stuff.” (Laughter.) And even when you complained about my long answers, I just want you to know that the only reason they were long was because you asked six-part questions. (Laughter.)

    But I have enjoyed working with all of you. That does not, of course, mean that I’ve enjoyed every story that you have filed. But that’s the point of this relationship. You’re not supposed to be sycophants, you’re supposed to be skeptics. You’re supposed to ask me tough questions. You’re not supposed to be complimentary, but you’re supposed to cast a critical eye on folks who hold enormous power and make sure that we are accountable to the people who sent us here.
