The former first lady had quite the 2019, capped off by her and her husband's first Oscar nomination for their Netflix documentary American Factory.

Mrs. Obama also broke records with her best-selling memoir, Becoming, which launched a sold-out book tour that took her around the world. She earned her first Grammy nomination for best spoken word album for her memoir's audiobook and was named the world's most admired woman as well as one of People's "People of the Year."

In December, she headed to Asia on an Obama Foundation trip alongside actress Julia Roberts and Today co-host Jenna Bush Hager to promote young women's education.

"Time just goes so fast," Mrs. Obama told People. "But like so many experiences in the last 10 years, we wanted to make it feel as normal as possible, given our family's circumstances."
