Michelle Obama tells girls to resist man’s ‘presumption’ to power
Raised in a working class, African-American family in Chicago, Obama recounted being told she was not good enough for Princeton University, where she studied sociology before she went on to Harvard Law School.
Barack and Michelle Obama’s children Sasha and Malia were just 7 and 10 years old, respectively, when the results of the 2008 election came in. Fast forward 11 years, and the former First Daughters are well on their way to paving their own career paths, pursing college diplomas.
In an interview with Today‘s Jenna Bush Hager, Michelle Obama spoke about taking her youngest child to college—and, like for many parents, it wasn’t easy.
Bush Hager broached the topic, asking if there were any tears when Michelle said goodbye to Sasha. “There were,” Michelle said, adding that the family tried their best to keep their emotions in check. “We were really good about it. We didn’t want to embarrass her because she had roommates and it was at the end, after lunch, when we said that final goodbye.”
