Michelle Obama used to have a hard time not only because of protocol issues but also with being accused of talking like she was white when she was a teenager, she told London girls from the secondary school in the British capital that she first visited in 2009.
'What's inspiring to me is that so numerous young women I've met...are triumphing in incredible ways, ' she said. "And its not always enough to 'Lean In, ' cause that sh-t doesn't work".
The atmosphere was more like a rock concert than a literary event, as crowds gathered at the Southbank centre for the London date of former First Lady Michelle Obama " s book tour. "I wanted my own identity so I wouldn't get lost in his journey".
She continued: "Overall, we are not seeing a major increase in female leadership in any industry or in any government in the world, and I think that's a shame". "But sometimes that stuff doesn't work".
But many were delighted at the glimpse of a more casual Obama, perhaps freer now than in the White House years.
Of course, Obama didn't let her stints of boy craziness get in the way of her success either, going on to earn a degree from Harvard Law School in 1988 and eventually pursuing a career in public service.
Michelle Obama tells London school she still has imposter syndrome
She was at all-girl Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School as part of a tour to promote her book Becoming.
She said: "I touched her!"
Before her comments seemingly blasting Sandberg, Obama talked about the struggles of marriage and admonished young people for rushing into the commitment. She also expressed disbelief over women voting for Trump over Clinton.
"I still have a little imposter syndrome, it never goes away".
Per CNN as of Friday Becoming had sold over 2 million copies in all formats and editions during its first 15 days, in the USA and Canada. She said sometimes young people enter in to marriage too hastily. In fact, Royal U.K. website states that there are no rules one is required to do when they meet the monarch or her relatives.
According to Becoming, Malia, then 16, begged the first lady and president on her special night in spring 2015: "Just be cool please, okay?" "We are demonised", she said. 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. You have to choose somebody who is fully formed because love does not form somebody that's not what love does.More news: George H W Bush, 94, has died - family say
