Mrs. Obama reaches out to students during her visit to Anacostia High School in Washington, D.C. After the students introduced themselves, Mrs. Obama explained how they came to have this meeting with her.
“What I do know about all of you is that you’re here because somebody in your school thought that you had a lot of potential; that each of you have struggled with something, but you’ve overcome it and pushed to the next level. And for me that was important. I didn’t just want the kids who had already arrived, but the kids who were pushing to get to the next place,” she said.
