Michelle Obama

"I haven’t been able to have it all at the same time. We have to define our own pathways. The problem we have as women is that we think that we have to have it all in three years. We create these false goals for ourselves that are not based on what we need but what we think others think we should need. If we don’t exercise the full breath of those choices, I think we’re selling ourselves out. We should be embracing those choices, however they come."

First Lady Michelle Obama
