First Lady Michelle Obama

While known for her impeccable sense of fashion and strength, FLOTUS Michelle Obama is a serious health advocate, especially when it comes to childhood obesity. In 2010, she created Let’s Move!, a popular program aimed at reducing obesity rates among children in the U.S.. Her work has even helped bring healthier lunches to schools across the country.
