Michelle Obama glows on the cover of the August 2014 issue of ESSENCE magazine. The First Lady sat down with ESSENCE editor-in-chief Vanessa K. Bush to discuss the critical role parents play in guiding their children to success.
“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”.
The issue will hit newsstands on July 4.
