She is definitely going to go down as one of the most memorable first ladies in all of history. From being a fashion icon to launching initiatives like ‘Reach higher’ and ‘Let girls learn’ she has touched people hearts so much so that people are urging her to vie for presidency come 2020.
In the magazine, the Harvard-educated lawyer who describes herself as “Mom in Chief” has addressed issues like healthy lifestyles and support for military families. We wouldn’t be surprised if she ran for the presidency seat and actually won. But it’s not all seriousness: she has been on shows like NCIS and Parks and Recreation proving that she can be a mistress of all trades.
This is what she had to say:
On being proud of the work she’s done as First Lady:
“I could have spent eight years doing anything, and at some level, it would have been fine. I could have focused on flowers. I could have focused on decor. I could have focused on entertainment. Because any First Lady, rightfully, gets to define her role. There’s no legislative authority; you’re not elected. And that’s a wonderful gift of freedom.”
On being told in regard to her Harvard education that she was “was reaching too high”:
“I’m just as smart as these people! What were they thinking’? So there are a lot of people who will try to step on your confidence based on their assumptions about who they think you are. For all of you sitting here, with those doubts in your head—because those whispers of doubt, they stay with you for a very long time—ignore them. . . . I still carry that with me today, as First Lady of the United States, because there are people who don’t think I should be doing that either.”
On what she chooses what to wear:
“It all boils down to comfort level: If I’m going to make you comfortable, then I have to be comfortable first. So my first reaction isn’t ‘Who made this?’ But ‘Let’s try it on. What does it look like? Oooh, that’s cute. Oh, wow. I never thought of wearing something like this. Let’s put a belt on it. I feel gooood in this.'”
