Michelle Obama Made These Students’ Day


First Lady Michelle Obama just continues to make our year. Back in July she delivered for the Democratic Party while calling on the next president to do great things, and she dominated Carpool Karokee with Missy Elliott. Remember that time she rapped?!

As an advocate for education, FLOTUS joined Nick Cannon and Seth Myers to surprise Howard University students with her Reach Higher message and initiative.


The goal of the initiative is to inspire every student in America to take charge of their future by continuing their education beyond high school, whether at a professional training program, a community college, or a four-year college or university.

“Dont rush to be ballin’. Grow into your lifestyle,” the First Lady shared with the students.

Nick Cannon, who is enrolled at Howard University as a freshman, was on hand to share his support of the pursuit of college education.

While we wish Mrs. Obama would run for president, we’re completely fine with admiring her First Lady greatness from here (or Snapchat)–for now.
