Michelle Obama’s MORE Magazine cover hit newsstand’s yesterday (June 23) and we are excited to see what the First Lady has to say in the July/August issue. Last year, the creators of MORE were brainstorming on how they could collaborate with the First Lady, so the editor’s decided to take a leap and propose that Mrs. Obama guest-edit the summer issue. Fast forward several months later, and the Editoral Editor of the renowned magazine, Lesley Jane Seymour has hung up her editing role to make room for Mrs. Obama’s debut.
MORE Magazine is a publication dedicated to women who want to do more with their lives, which is why the First Lady is a perfect representation of a qualified and powerful woman. Make sure you head to your local newsstand to check out what Michelle Obama has to say about politics, women in business, how women can support each other and more.

Michelle Obama’s guest-editor open letter:
“Just days after my family moved to Washington back in 2009, my daughters started their first day at their new schools. I went with Malia, my mother accompanied Sasha, and as I watched my girls climb into those big black cars filled with agents with guns and saw Sasha’s little face pressed against the window as her car pulled away, it hit me: What on earth were we doing?
What were Barack and I doing to our daughters? What were we doing to our marriage? Would they be OK? Would we be OK? At that moment, I made a promise to myself—and my girls—that I would do everything possible to make this disruption to their lives worthwhile.”
