After Barack, it’s Michelle’s turn to grace Montrealers with a visit. The ex-First Lady of the United States will address Montreal’s Chamber of Commerce next February, just eight months after her husband made his first appearance in Montreal. Her speech on February 5th is expected to draw a big crowd to the Chamber of Commerce. Barack Obama sold the 6000 seat venue out.
Michelle Obama, 53, was one of the most active First Ladies in American history, transforming how people view the role. She is a Harvard Law graduate, and was actively involved in fighting obesity and promoting young girl’s education through the “Let Girls Learn” program.
