The former First Lady of the United States — Michelle Obama — has been keeping busy during this lockdown period. Here is a timeline of her activities during this period.
Former FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, has been trying to make the most of the moment during this period by taking on new activities and spreading love and cheer as best as she can
SHARING UPLIFTING MESSAGES
Since the lockdown started, Michelle has made sure to share uplifting messages to people via her social media platforms. She encourages people to check up on each other and be supportive of one another during this period.
For Michelle, checking up on friends and family can go a long way in uplifting both parties' hearts as they can share their ups and downs.
WEEKLY KIDS' READ ALONG
From April through to May, Michelle has partnered with PBS Kids and Penguin Random House to produce free weekly read-along sessions for kids. The program is called "Mondays with Michelle Obama."
Michelle and her husband Barack have also planned to give virtual commencement speeches for the class of 2020.
The weekly read-along sessions are to give families a much-needed break from homeschooling and stay-at-home orders. The session will feature Michelle reading some of her favorite kids' books.
PARTNERING WITH OTHER CELEBRITIES
Asides from individual projects, Michelle has been partnering with other celebrities to help raise funds and thank essential workers for their dedication to flattening the curve. In her partnership with former FLOTUS Laura Bush, Michelle said:
"Laura and I want to express our overwhelming gratitude to the medical professionals...and so many others on the front lines risking their lives on our behalf."
Michelle and Laura Bush partnered together on the "One World: Together at Home Special." It was curated by Lady Gaga, and it features other celebrities like Stevie Wonder, Kerry Washington, to help raise funds for fighting the virus.
MAKING THE MOST OF THE MOMENT
Michelle and her husband Barack have also planned to give virtual commencement speeches for the class of 2020, who would be graduating without the customary graduation celebration.
With her new documentary, "Becoming," now out on Netflix, fans, and lovers of Michelle can catch up on all the background stories and get glimpses of her highly successful book tours.
Asides from all these, Michelle has been spending the time at home with her husband, Barack, and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, doing the best they can to make the most of the moment.
Just as she said in her chat with Ellen Degeneres, Michelle has chosen to structure her days and achieve certain things during the lockdown period.
