"Discomfort is something that you have to practice, because you do have a physiological response to it that's natural. It's like your heart starts beating, you get nervous, you don't know what's going to happen."

6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Michelle Obama, Former First Lady:
"Universities are looking for and should be looking for a diverse array of experiences. People who come from different backgrounds, because if everybody looked the same and experienced life the same way what would these conversations be like? Just a bunch of people agreeing with each other."
"I'm telling you: If you're here, you're supposed to be here. So, as you're integrating what she's saying, remember what we mentioned before: Don't make decisions out of fear, lack or greed. Fear, lack or greed. I don't say 'guilt,' because guilt is part of fear."
Michelle Obama surprised a group of Detroit college students on Tuesday afternoon, walking in as the young men of color took part in a roundtable discussion on education at the Motown Museum.
The former first lady was greeted with smiles, looks of astonishment and applause after entering the second floor of the building where Berry Gordy created sonic history more than a half-century ago.
"What's going on," Obama asked after hugging her brother Craig Robinson and Keegan-Michael Key, an actor and native Detroiter who moderated the discussion.
Obama encouraged the students from nearby Wayne State University to practice "discomfort" and not be afraid to try new things.
"Universities are looking for and should be looking for a diverse array of experiences," she said. "People who come from different backgrounds, because if everybody looked the same and experienced life the same way what would these conversations be like? Just a bunch of people agreeing with each other."
Obama was in Detroit as part of her book tour, which had a night-time stop planned at Little Caesars Arena, home to the NBA's Pistons and the NHL's Red Wings.
The tour is in support of Obama's best-selling memoir, "Becoming."
The museum is located where company founder Gordy launched his music empire. The label started in 1959, and scores of stars and hits were created before Motown relocated to California in 1972. The label marks its 60th anniversary early next year.
