Michelle Obama On Transitioning Into a Normal Life After the White House

On the topic of her future aspirations, MAKER Michelle Obama said in an interview with Oprah, "I want to open my front door without discussing it with anyone — and just walk."

Now FLOTUS is about to make that a reality, hoping to take it easy for a bit before taking on any future political endeavors. But those political engagements aren't that far away — a team is already getting to work on preparing her continued advocacy campaigns.

More specifically, a small staff led by Melissa Winter — the first lady's longtime deputy chief of staff — will post up in a D.C.-based office.

"Mel has been by my side from Day One. There is truly no one I trust more completely to make order out of chaos and take an idea from inception to execution," Obama said.

"When she’s ready, our group will come together, and we’ll do strategy. And we’ll talk about what does the first event for the new Michelle Obama look like. How do we want it to feel, and how does she want it to feel?" Winter said.

Besides rumors of an upcoming memoir, the first lady is looking forward to enjoying a more normal life in the immediate next chapter.

"I hope to find a way to seamlessly work my way into a normal life. It's going to take time, but I'm going to slowly," she said in her most recent interview with Oprah.
