“We spent the day together in Chicago, went back to her old house, her old high school,” she recalled.
Roberts said it was a delight “to see her light up when she’s around young people” and while they were at Obama’s former high school in Chicago, she even stopped into an “old dance class she had been in, and there was a poster of her when she was a dancer there.”

In addition to reflecting on her professional accomplishments, Roberts also shared her mantra for 2019.
