Voiced as an e-book, this podcast is a series of heart-felt letters addressed to Michelle Obama. In the letters, I discuss my past; from my rise out of poverty and abuse to the hallowed halls of academia and beyond. Along the way, I make history and encounter a number of celebrities. Join me on adventures that promise to be both heartbreaking and hilarious. Oh! Don't forget to check out, "Ep. Afterthoughts."
