Michelle Obama: I Didn't Believe America Was Ready For A Black President

How did Barrack Obama propose to Michelle before they both built this attractive partnership as husband and wife?

Speaking to author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie at the event, Mrs Obama recounted events that led to her publishing her first book, Becoming - from growing up in Chicago's South Side, to marrying the man she mentored at a law firm after getting her law degree. "Love doesn't fix brokiness in that way, so you have to choose someone whos already pretty well formed".

Returning to a central London school for girls - Elizabeth Garrett Anderson - that she first visited in 2009, Obama encouraged students to find their passion, mentors, and help each other, adding "there's no room for mean girls".

She said in London on Monday: "I still have a little impostor syndrome, it never goes away, that you're actually listening to me". "I wanted my own identity so I wouldn't get lost in his journey".

Recalling one of her first trips to London as the first lady, Obama said it was "incredibly irritating" that British journalists, including women journalists, focused on what she was wearing rather than on the work she was trying to do.

Sandberg addressed the criticism that her book left out underprivileged women back in 2016, telling CBS, "I did not really get how hard it is to succeed at work when you are overwhelmed at home". She also discussed her battle with imposter's syndrome despite being seen as a "symbol of hope" for many young women.

In a new interview for the January cover of Good Housekeeping, the former FLOTUS opened up about how she and daughter Malia connected over navigating the tricky waters of having a crush in school.

Obama added she considers Bush's son and her husband's predecessor George W. Bush a close friend.

"You reminded me of me, all the fears, the challenges you face". I have been at probably every powerful table that you can think of, I have worked at non-profits, I have been at foundations, I have worked in corporations, served on corporate boards, I have been at G-summits, I have sat in at the United Nations, they are not that smart. "So when you're walking around with those demons in your head that's the first dragon that you have to slay". But that didn't mean they were not highly intelligent and that's often the mistake that we make - that working class folk are not highly gifted when a lot of times your situation in life is limited by circumstances you find yourself in.

She said the idea that women could have it all at the same time was "a lie". "We mistakenly thought that Barack Obama was going to erase hundreds of years of history in eight years".
