Michelle Obama and Zaya Wade are working together to bring a special message for Women’s History Month, MTO News learned. Zaya made the official announcement on her social media page yesterday.
Zaya is the transgender daughter of NBA star Dwyane Wade. The young woman came out as transgender almost three years ago with the support of her father and stepmother, Gabrielle Union. However, it is not clear whether Zaya’s mother – a Christian minister – fully supported her transition and not publicly stated whether she viewed Zaya as male or female.
“Life is a beautiful process of becoming myself,” Zaya told her social media fans. “Who better to talk about becoming than with Michelle Obama,” Zaya excitedly asked her supporters.
Becoming began as Michelle Obama’s memoir and has since evolved into something of a movement. Many were thrilled after reading about the former first lady’s life story, which included both triumphs and challenges.
“You can now find the Young Reader Edition and the Paperback Book of Becoming anywhere that books are sold,” Michelle told her social media fans on Tuesday, March 2nd. “I am so grateful to have this opportunity to expand our fellowship and I am especially excited to welcome more young people into the herd as they begin their journey of becoming. I hope you will check them out! “
Zaya and Michelle are planning a meeting in March, the month of women’s history.

Zaya’s conversation with Ms. Obama is expected to revolve around the new edition of the former first lady’s memoir.
“Being honest for who I am and sharing my story by ‘becoming’ has been one of the most liberating experiences of my life,” Michelle shared in a recent Instagram post. “And one of the highlights of my experience was hearing from so many of you and getting into deep, honest conversations that made everyone feel more connected and nourished,” said the former first lady.
