Michelle Obama's advice to Meghan Markle

Adjust Comment Print

Michelle Obama has said she still feels "imposter syndrome", adding that "it never goes away", during a frank talk in London. "That's a lie. And it's not always enough to 'lean in, ' because that s**t doesn't work all the time".

As Michelle would know, having such a public platform can be very stressful, and the pressure around choosing patronages and making public speeches - as Meghan did three times while on her first royal tour with Prince Harry - can be daunting.

Even though she spent two terms in the White House, Mrs. Obama says that she doesn't have a desire to run for the office. "You guys gave me a sense of comfort". Sometimes that stuff doesn't work.

"It's [marriage] often times not equal, and you feel a bit resentful about it", she said. The concept is linked to the ambitious idea that women, as long as they try, can be successful at home and at work.

It was an unusual critique of Mrs Sandberg, who wrote a book entitled Lean In in 2013 that encourages women to get ahead in the workplace by "leaning in" to their ambitions.

Mrs Obama pioneered a number of initiatives during her eight years in the White House, with a special focus on children's nutrition and health.

Mr Trump, who wants oil prices to fall, has been politically supportive of Saudi Arabia and put pressure on it to keep. The energy resources, pooled in vast oil fields, are near the surface of the desert.

But some people took offense to Obama's unintentional cursing, calling her "classless".

Throw on top of that the constant media spotlight on her family, as well as rumours of a "rift" between her and Kate, which saw the palace respond with a statement this week.

Sandberg has been under scrutiny following a New York Times report last month that she had played an active role in a campaign to discredit Facebook's critics.

"If we want to solve any major issue you can think about, it starts with an education".

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".

In a study this year, a group of Duke University psychology professors used 2,000 participants to test the "lean in" approach and how it worked with structural and systemic disadvantages women face in the workplace. "We are stuck at less than 6 percent of the Fortune 500 CEO jobs and their equivalent in nearly every country in the world".
