America’s First Lady Michelle Obama shared a heartfelt and motivational speech today at the White House’ East Room, where she encouraged the younger generations to have hope, acquire an education that empowers them, pursue their dreams, and never fear.
She encouraged everyone to have faith and hope regardless of who they are, and where they come from. They matter and belong in America.
The following are just few quotes that were gleaned from her passionate speech today;
“Being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life and I hope I made you proud”
“So for all the young people in this room and all those who are watching, know that this country belongs to you — to all of you, from every background or walk of life.”
“If you or your parents are immigrants, know that you are part of a proud American tradition: the infusion of new cultures, talents and ideas, generation after generation, that has made us the greatest country on earth”
“You will do greater things with your life. You will accomplish what I couldn’t and more. And if all goes to plan, your kids will do even better.”
