On Friday, Michelle Obama gave her final White House remarks as First Lady. The speech was given during an event designed to honor the 2017 School Counselor of the year.
During the speech Michelle definitely did what she does best and used her words to inspire and give advice to young people. Toward the end, she was clearly emotional as we all are and will be in a few weeks.
“I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong,” Obama said, her voice breaking several times near the end of her remarks. “So don’t be afraid. You hear me, young people?
Don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourself with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope; never fear.”
