As a young girl, even in my wildest dreams, I never could have imagined this moment. Nobody in my family has ever had a portrait - there are no portraits of the Robinsons or the Shields from the South Side of Chicago. This is all a little bit overwhelming, especially when I think about all of the young people who will visit the National Portrait Gallery and see this, including so many young girls and young girls of color who don’t often see their images displayed in beautiful and iconic ways. I am so proud to help make that kind of history. But the fact is that none of this would be possible without the extraordinary artist and woman behind this portrait, @asherald. Thank you, Amy – it was a joy to work with you and get to know you.
In an interview, she said:
"Parker's everyday moment became an extraordinary one, and my sincerest hope is that our book will continue to resonate that moment's power and promise, its hope and dreams, its inspiration and indelible impact with Parker, her generation, and generations to come. After all. with their inner and profound insight and wisdom, our children are truly our future."
The charming toddler has always perceived Michelle as her role model, and she even admits to wanting to be like her, as she believes the former First Lady is a queen, she intends to be a queen herself.
It appears the little Missy adores her icon, as she insisted on dressing like her in a Halloween costume. She informed her mother of her intentions to create a replica of the photo she saw of Michelle at the gallery. Jessica confessed that she was surprised because she thought her little princess would probably want to be Princess Elsa or some other fairytale-Disney kind of princess.
