Michelle Obama, the first lady of the United States, has described her first year at school as an “experiment”.
But she told a US audience at the end of this year that the lesson was just starting.
“I started kindergarten this year,” Mrs Obama said.
“The last day of school, I got to meet my classmates, so I got a sense of what it’s like to be a child and what it feels like to grow up.”
In response to a question on whether her education would be any different, Mrs Obama replied: “No.
In her own words: “It was very surreal.
I’m learning about the history of the US from my friends, but it’s just a whole different thing.
“It’s very hard to make sense of it all at the same time. “
“So, it was a really surreal, strange experience.” “
Mrs Obama’s first year was marked by her decision to make an official visit to the White House for a State of the Union address. “

In it, she said that although she has been able to learn more about the world around her, she had been unable to grasp the challenges that people have faced in their lives.
“For the first time, I really felt like a citizen,” Mrs Clinton said.
She said the visit had “changed my life”, with a sense that she had found a role in the country that was “so important” to her.
“And I know it was just a very short time.
But the journey that I’ve made this year, I have to say it’s been a really positive one.”
