Speaking in Washington to a group of high school students from Maryland, D.C and Virginia, Michelle Obama said growing up, her chattiness helped her succeed. "One of my strengths was that I had a big mouth, and I liked to talk a lot," she said, according to the Associated Press.
Obama's talk was part of a mentoring program for the students. When one asked about being worried to leave home for college, the first lady said that it was reasonable to be scared. "Shoot, being married to Barack Obama? He's got big plans. He's always pushing us beyond our comfort zones, and I'm dragged along going, `What's he doing now? No, not this,'" she said.
