Obama was speaking midway through a five-day trip to the region promoting her “Let Girls Learn” initiative. Later in the week, she’ll speak at a U.S.-constructed school in Jordan that’s educating 400 refugees from Syria.
The first lady also referred to her own experience of gender discrimination as a child growing up in Chicago, recalling that even though she was “bright and curious, and I had plenty of opinions of my own, people were often more interested in hearing what my brother had to say.”

Obama, who attended Princeton University and Harvard Law School, said she was told as a young student she’d never be admitted to a prestigious university.
Who specifically told her this?
“I got the message that I shouldn’t take up too much space in this world,” she said. “That I should speak softly and rarely.”
She might want to take that advice now instead of looking like an idiot.
