Michelle Obama met thousands of high school students at 2018 College Signing Day in Philadelphia, her words “Forever First Lady” drew cheers from the crowd, Time reported.
The former first lady’s address at the event to celebrate students who chose to go to college was bright, joyful and very inspiring. She said to the thousands of students they have everything it takes to succeed.
“I know that you are me, and if I can be standing here as your forever First Lady, then you can do anything you put your mind to. So remember this moment when you’re out there,”
Michelle added, speaking to more than 8,000 high school seniors. During the National College Signing Day event, Mrs Obama touched the topic of bullying and said that there are all these people out there telling others what they can’t do.
“I am so proud of you all. You did just what I did. You ignored the haters,”
concluded mother-of-two. That line from the good-looking Michelle drew cheers from the crowd.
It’s Obama’s fifth time celebrating a College Signing Day event, a project she started in 2014 when she and President Barack Obama were still in the White House. This year, celebrity guests included Robert DeNiro, Zendaya, Camila Cabello, Rebel Wilson and Bradley Cooper.
Thankfully, Michelle Obama hasn’t gone far since leaving the White House, her first appearance after President Trump took office was a surprise visit to a high school in Washington, D.C. on February 28, 2017, International Women’s Day, where she sat and talked to students about their future, according to Newsweek. She continues her work, writes a book and is always ready to help the young generation.
