It’s not every day we get to see two of the world’s most influential women in the same room. As part of her book tour, Michelle Obama sat down with Chimamanda Adichie to discuss her life and experiences within and outside the White House in London, on December 3.

It’s no longer news that America’s former first lady, Michelle Obama has written and is now publishing her autobiography, Becoming. We told you earlier about the book discussion set to be hosted by our very own Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Well, the much-anticipated event has come and gone, and just like we expected, the discussion was insightful.

Only 15 days after its release, Becoming smashed records to become the top-selling book of 2018, which comes as no surprise  because it was written by America’s first black first lady. Michelle Obama is however more than that, she is also a feminist and an inspiration for many young black women.

At the event, she also joked about meeting Queen Elizabeth, who simply told her and Obama to “get in” when she got nervous about the royal protocol. She also discussed her battle with imposter’s syndrome despite being seen as a “symbol of hope” for many young women.
