If there's anything Michelle Obama can do, it's serve up major inspiration. From famous quotes like "When they go low, we go high," to health initiatives like Let's Move, the former first lady advocates for people everywhere, regardless of background or identity. This time, she has a message for high school seniors who plan to attend college—and it's just the motivation you need for the rest of the week.
"To all the students in this graduation series and across this country, I want to congratulate you for reaching higher to get the education you need for the life you want to live," Michelle said in a taped message that aired yesterday on Good Morning America. She even made an appearance at the star-studded College Signing Day, an annual event that's part of her Reach Higher initiative that works to boost higher education across the country.
"Barack and I are so proud of you," she added. "And to all the young people out there who are still figuring out your next steps, I want to encourage you to keep working as hard as you can and to empower yourself through higher education. And then get out there and use that education to give back to your family, your community and your country."
As always, we couldn't have said it better than Michelle.
