According to Chimamanda Ngoza Adichie (@chimamanda.adichie), “she had the air of a woman who could balance a checkbook, and who knew a good deal when she saw it, and who would tell off whomever needed telling off.” @gloriasteinem told us how “she managed to convey dignity and humor at the same time.” Jon Meacham described how both she and her husband “conducted themselves splendidly in the @whitehouse, managing the most difficult of tasks with apparent ease.” The actress Rashida Jones (@iamrashidajones) said that she’ll “have her own legacy, separate from her husband’s. And it will be that she was the first lady to show women that they don’t have to choose. That it’s okay to be everything.” Visit tmagazine.com to read more from these love letters, all penned to the First Lady @MichelleObama, one of our seven #tgreats. Photo by @collierschorrstudio.
