In an exclusive interview with NBC’s Today which aired on Wednesday, First Lady Michelle Obama explained that she’s still the same person she always was, despite being married to the President of the United States.
“I still see myself as Michelle Obama, the girl who grew up in the South Side of Chicago — Marian and Fraser’s daughter. I’ve got this husband who does these interesting things — and I’m Malia and Sasha’s mother.”
The First Lady further explained that “I try to be as authentically me as I can be, because it’s easier to maintain it. So what people have seen over the course of the year is really Michelle. And I find a level of comfort in that role.”
