Michelle Obama visits Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in Islington...again | Education

Michelle Obama visits Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in Islington...again | Education”

In fifteen words, Michelle Obama responded, definitively: "It's not always enough to lean in, because that s**t doesn't work all the time".

Michelle Obama has said she would like to offer a message of hope during times of political conflict and division in the United States.

While on tour, the former First Lady also expanded on her marriage, and how despite appearances, it's harder than it looks.

Both Obama and Markle both share a special interest in women and girls and equality. I was getting real comfortable up in here. "Sometimes that stuff doesn't work", she said. Facebook has since put out a statement saying that Sandberg "takes full responsibility for any activity that happened on her watch".

"The best advice I can give here is the simplest: I think everyone just has to be themselves", she said.

"Surely she could have included a story or two about successful women who are more likely to have been born to nannies than to hire them".

Obama sold more than 725,000 copies of her memoir, Becoming, on its first day on the market, one of the largest single-day sales of the year in book publishing, according to The Hill.

She went on to say that choosing projects is important and is to be done wisely.

Predictably, the crowd lost it at the former First Lady's use of the s-bomb.

It was a return trip for Obama - who is in London to promote her memoir Becoming - as she first visited the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in 2009 and has kept close ties with the school and nearby Mulberry School ever since.

"Our Secret Service doesn't even let me ride around with Malia so up until that point we had never driven in a auto driven by anyone else, so it was like "this is what's going to happen, you're going to get out and sit here and this is what is going to happen". And I want them to know that Michelle and Barack Obama, who have a phenomenal marriage and who love each other, we work on our marriage. "It's two independent individuals who are trying to come together to build a life forever". "I have never been a fan of politics and my experience over the past 10 years has done nothing to change that".

She told her rapt audience of 300 secondary school girls that her feelings of self-doubt had remained with her since childhood. Although the girls spent their teenage years in the White House, Michelle points out that they still faced numerous same experiences she did growing up.
