Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing with regard to the advertisement which has been published in your magazine about the most influential
the readers have read. The
which has a great impact on me is called Becoming written by Michel Obama. She is the previous first lady of the United States , and in her
, she describes the time she was working in the White House. I find
not only amusing but
the author has used a friendly tone in her writing style, the
provides information about serious serious affairs related to politics. I am inspired by
because I found that even a girl who comes from a middle-class black family can be one they become the first lady of the most powerful country in the world, so after reading
, I became more determined to work hard in order to become more successful in my career and education.
, Becoming can be beneficial for young students, especially underprivileged young girls who want to make a change in their community. They can read about the milestones Michel Obama has faced and the way she has overcome these difficulties. I hope that I can draw people's attention to
