BOSTON (WBZ-AM) — Former First Lady Michelle Obama spoke to young women who have been a part of the Black Girls Rock leadership initiative at the Boys and Girls Club in Dorchester Saturday.

Obama answered questions and gave advice to the young women.

“Keep your dreams close until you figure them out,” Obama said.

While answering questions, Obama reiterated her lack of interest in running for office.

“One of the reasons why I shy away from politics is because me running for politics is feeding into people’s notions that there is a ‘one,’” Obama said. “And part of our problem is that there isn’t. That’s a false notion. There isn’t a ‘one.’ One person changes nothing… you don’t change without a group, without a team, without a community.”

Obama is in Boston promoting her new memoir, “Becoming,” with a book signing at TD Garden Saturday night.
