Michelle Obama Believes 'Leaning In' Does Not Always Work

Obama recalled her first few months in the White House and getting her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, adjusted to their new life. She told the audience of 2,700 people that despite Trump's presidency, the progress made with her husband was real.

"I still have a little imposter syndrome, it never goes away".

As the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle knows what it's like to take on such a public role, just as Meghan did this year.

Obama, 54, was speaking to Good Housekeepingmagazine when the topic of the Duchess of Sussex came up.

Mrs Obama, who will speak about her memoir Becoming at London's Southbank Centre tonight (Monday) believes that Meghan's new royal status will enable her to fulfil her passions.

"I found myself having to walk a bunch of different lines".

"It gives me a level of focus and determination the work that I do when I get to see you all up close and as I said then you remind me of me".

Obama confessed to facing numerous hurdles and confronting teachers who "underestimated me at every step".

"It's not always enough to lean in, because that shit doesn't work all the time", Obama said in response to the "lean In' mantra made famous by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in her book by the same title".

Even though she got in to Princeton she still remembers the feelings of doubt that it provoked. "She's smart and amusing and honest in ways in which Toot was". "It takes some time and it takes some maturity".

In her memoir, Becoming, she described Trump's actions as "distressing" to watch and admitted her husband's legacy is aggressively threatened by the Republican firebrand.

Tickets for the London event, which is part of an global book tour, sold out quickly and the audience included actor Riz Ahmed, actress Michaela Coel and model and activist Adwoa Aboah, as well as Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and 300 school children from secondary schools in Lambeth and around the UK. But as I settled into a falling chair on stage and started watching the performance [.] something inside me began to quake. "I nearly felt myself falling backward into my own past".

"And so the Queen says "just get in, sit wherever" and she's telling you one thing and you're remembering protocol and she says "Oh it's all rubbish, just get in".

Colleges and universities need to reach out to children when they are as young as 13.

"It did not really sink in that it was her", 11-year-old Emma said.

Earlier today, EGA alumna Winnie Mac, 22, said: "One of the things she said in her speech was how important it was to reach back and help others". "We as women don't have the luxury of tearing each other down; there are enough barriers out there".

"You reminded me of me, all the fears, the challenges you face".
