She also claimed that she would "never forgive" Trump for spreading the "birther" conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was born in Kenya, and therefore ineligible to be elected USA president. Another photo released in her new book shows Michelle getting her "hands dirty" with a group of children, explaining: "The White House garden was created to be a symbol of nutrition and healthy living, a springboard from which I could launch a larger initiative like Let's Move!"

She remains an inspiration for future First Ladies, and women and girls everywhere.

Obama said that while she was a student at the high school she was doubted by her guidance counselor but applied to Princeton University and was accepted nonetheless.

Michelle Obama admitted her and Barack once had marriage counselling.

Mrs Obama said she wanted to open up about her fertility issues in her new memoir, Becoming, in a bid to help others who have suffered the same setbacks.

"I write about those, you know, those nasty times where people, you know, called me Barack's 'baby mama, ' you know?"

"I mean, this is like a state visit, so they tell you that you're going to do this, they're going to stand here". She recalled how hard she found it to manage Barack's hectic work schedule when he first entered politics and how his long hours away from the family home put pressure on their family. "Wait, wait, people. This isn't who I am'".

Obama wrote in her book, at the job interview with Jarrett, "before I left, she offered me a job, inviting me to join her staff as an assistant to Mayor Daley, beginning as soon as I was ready".

She also said that she wants other young couples to know: "Michelle and Barack Obama, who have a phenomenal marriage and who love each other, we work on our marriage. And we get help with our marriage when we need it", she writes. She suffered a miscarriage and used in vitro fertilization to conceive their two daughters.

"There were definitely times when I wished things were different".

The pain a mother feels for her lost child can never equal to any pain an ordinary person would feel.

"Instead of walking away going, 'Yeah, you're right, maybe she's right, ' I would always think, 'I'll show you, '" she said. "But his swerving sort of-you know, I'm flailing in the wind. You need to be careful with your words", she said of President Trump.
