Former United States of America first lady, Michelle Obama gave her first speech since moving out from the white house and leaving her position, disclosed that she has no eye for political ambition for family reasons.
In part of her speech retrieved from CNN at the recent America Institute of Architecture Convention in Orlando, Michelle Obama admitted admitted that staying in the White House was tough and that she will not run for any public office.
She said: “I wouldn’t ask my children to do this again.
“It’s all well and good until you start running, and then the knives come out,’ she said in her speech. ‘I wouldn’t ask my children to do this again because, when you run for higher office, it’s not just you, it’s your whole family.”
Talking about her movement out of the White House, she said: “It’s good to get out of the house. It’s been so far so good, it hasn’t been that long since we left but it’s good to not have the weight of the world upon your shoulders.
She further said that her daughters Sasha and Malia are now free to open their windows now, a thing they could never try at the White House.
Citing an example, she said her daughters had once caused a commotion when they tried to open their bedroom window facing the public side of the presidential building due to the pleasure they derived in listening to the protesters. They found it soothing, she added.
Describing their last day at the White House as “bittersweet,” the former first lady said it was the longest place she had ever lived in her entire life and her daughters, Malia and Sasha who grew up at the White House were reduced to tears when the current President, Donald and Melania Trump moved in.
She said: “I didn’t want to have tears in my eyes for the new President.”
However, Michelle vowed to continue in helping young girls to get educated around the globe.
“One issue that I am excited about continuing to work on is … to help young girls get an education around the world.
“The plight of women and girls is real. The struggles are real.”
