For most of us former first lady Michelle Obama represents a woman of power, a woman that has inspired millions to better their lives. Michelle cares about the American people and has shown it time and time again.
In a return to the public spotlight, on Wednesday Michelle surprised a group of students at a Washington, D.C. school in honor of International Women’s Day. The experience was captured in a series of snapchats.
“We’re celebrating International Women’s Day with a group of amazing women, and we’re going to talk about the importance of education in their lives and mine,” Obama’s Snapchat story starts before she walks into a room at the Cardozo Education Campus, a combined middle school and high school.
Her main focus on surprising these young women was to embrace on them the importance of education. Once she arrived she was met with gasps. Some students can be heard saying “Oh my God!” while another one asks classmates if they knew she was coming.
Michelle has always expressed how important education really is. According to History.com “in 2011, Michelle co-founded the Joining Forces program to expand educational and employment options for veterans and to raise awareness about the difficulties plaguing military families. After helping Obama win a second term in office, she formed the Reach Higher initiative to inspire young people to explore higher education and career-development opportunities.”
