Asked what impact her first visit to EGA had on her, Mrs Obama said: "On a personal level I was just moved touched and inspired, as I always am by the young people I meet around the world. That's a lie, and it's not always enough to lean in, because that shit doesn't work all the time".
As the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle knows what it's like to take on such a public role, just as Meghan did this year.
"A marriage is hard work, and I share that because, I see too many young people who frivolously enter into marriage. they think the love and the courtship part has something to do with what marriage is, and it doesn't - it's a little bitty part of it", Obama continued.
"Despite waiting in the rain for an hour to get into the Barclays Center, I was just in the same room as @MichelleObama and she accidentally said "shit" and it was unbelievable and my life has been forever changed", one user wrote. All right, I'm back now. Sometimes that stuff doesn't work.
"Marriage still ain't equal, y'all", she said, according to Vanity Fair."It ain't equal". The concept is linked to the ambitious idea that women, as long as they try, can be successful at home and at work.
The following year, Mrs Obama invited a dozen of the schoolgirls to visit her at the White House in Washington.
As she spoke with her friend and poet Elizabeth Alexander, Obama talked about the challenges of balancing career and family.
Obama's comments are not the first criticism of Sandberg's approach, which is accused of suggesting that individual women have to be the solution to workplace inequality rather than widespread policy changes.
"I don't wanna be president", she said, as reported by the New York Post.
In 244 glossy pages, Sheryl Sandberg put forth this thesis in her 2013 best-seller "Lean In": Women can overcome external and internal impediments to their own accomplishments by becoming empowered and confident.
"And so then it's time to go to marriage counselling". "And so, overall, we are not seeing a major increase in female leadership in any industry or in any government in the world, and I think that's a shame".
However, Facebook's chief operating officer herself later admitted that the philosophy has not been as effective as she hoped.
