Michelle Obama’s 2016: All About Education While Hanging Out With Famous Celebrities
Michelle Obama is spending her last few weeks as the First Lady of the United States. Recalling what 2016 was for her, Michelle sat down with Oprah Winfrey which became her final interview in the White House.
The FOTUS is considerably a celebrity right now. During her interview with Oprah, she recalls making appearances with several popular people. But even though she mingled with the high profile, often rich and famous celebrities, she still remained true and focused on her core messages and platforms, as reported by Vanity Fair.
Before Michelle Obama leaves the White House and before 2017 sets in, she remembers racking up a ton of celebrity friends, as reported by CBS. Like that one time she spent driving around town with James Corden in his Carpool Karaoke segment. While she confesses that she rarely listens to music in the car, she also made it a point to talk about her "Let Girls Learn" program. "Let Girls Learn" is an initiative that focuses on worldwide education for young girls everywhere.
And if that was not enough, she also enlisted the help of Missy Elliott, Kelly Clarkson, Queen Latifah, Janelle Monae, Chloe x Halle, Zendaya, Lea Michele and Jadagrace. These women sang "This is for My Girls" which ultimately became the official song for "Let Girls Learn." In the summer of 2016, Meryl Streep and Michelle Obama, along with Freida Pinto, went to Morocco to talk to the girls in her LGL program. Streep is an advocate of women, equality and education herself.
Although many may remember her modest by stylish outfits in various national conventions, victory rallies, political balls and her popular push up challenge against Ellen DeGeneres, she still remains true to her platform. She was glad to work with anybody who can help create awareness and pursue global action in order for young girls everywhere to get access to education.
