“I spent a lot of time thinking, talking with friends and family. Really just being, if you know what I mean. I reflected back on my time in the White House of course, but I went even deeper. I looked back at the whole arc of my life”, stated Mrs. Obama.
In future episodes Mrs. Obama will be talking with her mom, her brothers, friends, and colleges. “In other episodes we’ll be talking about what the challenges and the joys of being a parent or a spouse…the growth we gain from leaning on colleagues and mentors…the friends that help us sort through the toughest times”, she said.
Stay tuned for the next episode.
